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
  •

    Great intercooler took me about 25 minutes to install went and got a protune and all is gravy. Highly recommend it. Greatest part is it fit on my 2011 STi with the perrin strut brace. Win win!

    This piece is so beautiful it almost should just sit in your living room mounted on the wall. The craftsmanship and engineering in this are amazing and you can tell when picking it up it is a very solid piece. It is by no means lightweight but it will make up for it in the power gain you get with the added flow and size along with moving to bar and plate. I chose to go with the black not only for the looks but because they have coated it will a Thermal Dispersant Coating to increase cooling capabilities. make sure if you are buying this interecooler to get a matching shroud to make sure all the air is going through the core and not around it. PS this also fit with my Carbing strut brace with no clearance issues. Thanks again Grimmspeed for making such a fantastic piece. Sean W.

    This Superb Top Mount Intercooler gives me 400ps  5 years ago
    5out of 5stars
    Coalhouse_Walker
    I imported this intercooler from RallySportDirect to the UK in late 2014 (when we could get 1.6 of your $s to our one of our £s) along with a GS hood scoop splitter and a GS Y-pipe kit . Last month, my Bugeye '01 WRX Wagon dyno'd at 395bhp / 377lbs.ft (or 400ps in metric) of engine horsepower following supporting mods and a MAF-less tune. I like this intercooler because I didn't want a front mount and it means my engine bay, at first glance, still looks pretty stock. It idles smoothly and cleanly doesn't fluff in traffic and seems well up to the job. It appears to be capable of operating well above the range of my 380bhp-rated turbo. I would recommend this intercooler without hesitation. FYI: my supporting mods include: a Perrin CAIK and inlet pipe, an SC38 turbo (a Blouch 18G with a billet compressor), 3-port boost solenoid, TGV deletes, ID1000 injectors (probably overkill), ported wrapped headers, a 'trick' up-pipe and a catted 3" Miltek exhaust.

    This thing is beautiful. Its welds and quality are top notch. Will be running it on my 03 wrx with a vf48 and should be plenty of cooling.

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    • Q: strut tower bar clearancee?  Rallynewbie2 years ago

      I'm installing an STI flexible strut tower brace on my 2020 sti, i was just curious if this would clear that piece. i appreciate your time, thanks.
    • Q: Price Difference of Black vs Silver  SalLV3 years ago

      Is the price difference due to the black one having the thermal coating?
    • Q: Specs total measurements   Zoom793 years ago

      Yes I was look you the measurements/specs on the TMIC w'h'l' port holes etc...
    • Q: Re tune required?  Rico863 years ago

      I was wondering if this needed to be pro tuned for install. Looking to replace my old one and want to buy this with an AOS but all depends if I need to spend money for a tune. Thanks
      • 1 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

        A:  You will not need a tune for this, but to get the full benefit a tune would be recommended.

    • Q: Hose compatibility   Bog4 years ago

      Does this intercooler reuse the stock hoses on a 2004 WRX?
      • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

        A:  It can reuse the stock parts, but it is highly advised to upgrade those to maximize the benefit of a new TMIC.
