  • Q: Upgrades on a 2006 Subaru WRX  Jacob 5 months 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?
    • 0 of 0 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.

    Can anyone confirm fitment on a 2015+ STi WITHOUT the Grimmspeed coupler/silicone kit?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  You are going to need a y pipe for this intercooler. The Grimmspeed kit is one we recommend to use but it will work with other y pipe kits.

  • Q: Fitment for 2005 sti   mr_kris77875503 years ago

    Thinking about getting this IC as and upgrade to my stock IC, wondering how the fitment would be wth regards to the stock hood scoop. Aka would it fit or would I need the grimmspeed spliter to run this IC? Also would be running a Borg Warner efr 6758 ar.65 would this be big enough to support this turbo?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  This intercooler would be much more efficient using the Grimmspeed splitter. Also it would be a great match for a Borg 6758, anything bigger than that and you'll want to consider a front mount intercooler.

      A:  This intercooler is not the correct fit for an LGT. The 05-09 LGT intercooler is Part Number 090027, which is being introduced this month. That intercooler will come with the proper couplers to install on your 05 LGT. -Andy

  • Q: ac line issues?  gsmith3045 years ago

    I have a 03 wrx and was wondering about fitment issues regarding the ac line that runs along the firewall behind the tmic, does this tmic hit it or touch it at all? or could this be fixed with a sti ac line? thanks
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  There should be no fitment issues on your 03 WRX. This top mount is designed around an OEM engine bay and should clear your AC lines. Mike

  • Q: Strut brace clearance   Kremer9305 years ago

    Hi. Great looking intercooler. I currently run a process west tmic and was considering changing to the grimmspeed unit as it is shown in one of the pictures to clear a brace. Could you please confirm that it will clear the Perrin and other braces? Thanks.
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  From our testing we have found that most strut bars will clear our top mount. However, we can't guarantee fitment with other aftermarket parts. There are too many other variables that can affect the way the parts will fit. Mike

  • Q:  This vs stock STI TMIC vs Process West TMIC vs ETS TMIC  krinkle5 years ago

    I'm curious how this compares to the competition. I have a 2011 STI and was planning to go with the ETS TMIC (which it seems RallySport no longer sells) when I noticed this came out. It seems smaller than the ETS unit. Would there be big enough difference to upgrade from a stock STI TMIC?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  This TMIC is capable of supporting much more power than oem. We have test vehicles running 600whp with this piece. If you're oem piece is still efficient for your set up you may not pick up power but if it has become a choking point this will be a great upgrade! Mike

  • Q: Difference between this and the black TMIC?  AramH5 years ago

    I notice the price of the black TMIC is much more than this one. Are there any performance differences between the two ICs, or is it just a paint job? Thanks.
    • 2 of 2 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  The black coating is much more than paint. It is a thermal dispersant coating that helps aid the core in the removal of heat. Mike
