Features & Product Details

RallySport Direct proudly carries a great selection of quality aftermarket performance products brought to you by GrimmSpeed. 

 

This is the GrimmSpeed Top Mount Intercooler. Once you start performing modifications that add more horsepower and more boost, eventually you will surpass the limits in terms of the thermal capacity of your factory top mount intercooler. Heat soak will occur, and you will put a limit on your modifications and engine performance as a whole. GrimmSpeed's approach introduces a larger core that provides more area surface coverage to not only cool the intake charge temperatures but to keep them consistent under high-performance driving conditions where your engine will experience more heat. This is the perfect solution over the factory top mount intercooler unit for those looking to make more power and performance with better cooling efficiency.

 

 

DETAILS:

  • Silver core finish
  • Bar and plate core design
  • Smooth end-tank internal contours provide maximum flow
  • Machined throttle body connection provides a tight and trouble-free seal
  • Machined flange faces and internal bores provide maximum pressure-tightness with unrestricted flow
  • Permanent mold end-tank tooling and casting allows for tighter tolerances and higher strength
  • Stainless-steel threaded inserts prevent cross-threading or damaged threads
  • High-density and high-flow core optimizes heat transfer and minimizes flow restrictions
  • Flows over 1500 CFM
  • Supports power levels up to 575 WHP
  • Pressure tested up to 50 PSI
  • Thoroughly cleaned and inspected before shipment
  • Will include the GrimmSpeed Inlet and BPV gaskets
  •  

     

    NOTE:

  • 04-05 Forester XT models will require an STI BOV and STI BOV recirculation hose
  • WRX and Forester models will need OEM STI or GrimmSpeed Y-Pipe Kit
  •

    Quick Delivery/Minor Fitment Issues 3 years ago

    The product was delivered quickly. During the install, there was an issue at the shop with fitment. The shop ordered an appropriate adapter to finish the install. It was probably something I should have checked into so not the fault of RSD. Very pleased overall.

    Replaced my OEM TMIC with Grimmspeed. Well built an looks good. Its moderately heavy and a pain to install since your semi leaned over. Fitment is tight. Item was well packaged an shipped quickly. Pleasure doing business with RSD again.

    GrimmSpeed Top Mount Intercooler on 04 Forester XT 6 years ago

    FXT
    The unit it self is great. The only issue I had was the lack of info about the installation. Some people said that you can still use the OEM Y pipe, but if want to save time and pain, use a silicon after market Y pipe.

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    • Q: Fitment on a swapped GC  Zee1 year ago

      Have a 207 swapped GC... any idea how the fitment would be? I’m currently running the factory GD sti top mount and it’s tight underneath (AC lines and heater core hoses) Thanks guys.
      • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

        A:  I am pretty sure this would be mounted higher than the factory top mount. The factory mounts are in the middle of the core, and the mounts for this one are at the bottom so it should free up a little space for you.

    • Q: GrimmSpeed intercooler splitter  Chris3 years ago

      Does this include the GrimmSpeed intercooler splitter? GrimmSpeed states it's included in 2015+ but I don't see it mentioned in the product description of the 'what's in the box' video. Thanks in advance!
    • Q: 2012 wrx   schryba214 years ago

      Hello I have a 2012 wrx it has a cobb intake and cobb down pipe stage 2 tuned cobb and I was just wondering if I would need a retune after putting the grimespeed upgraded intercooler in
      • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

        A:  No tune is required, but it is recommended. A tune will give you the most out of your upgrades.

    • Q: Upgrades on a 2006 Subaru WRX  Jacob 4 years ago

      Would this be enough for a blouch tdo6-20gxt turbo. I will be getting new 1050 injectors, 255 pump, cosworth air intake, turbosmart bov, boost solenoid, and a grimmspeed exhaust. Is there anything else I need to prevent engine implosion?
      • 1 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

        A:  This would be a great TMIC for your setup. Although a 20G is approaching what most would call the safety limit with the stock block, a good tune, an air oil separator, upgraded oil pickup and baffle, aluminum radiator, and good maintenance are all great steps towards making your motor last.
