Features & Product Details

This is the Grimmspeed top mount intercooler that has been designed to provide maximum cooling efficiency with minimal restriction. Grimmspeed understands that because the top mount intercooler design is more prone to heat soak, they developed a solution that delivers performance while reducing intercooler temperatures to help prevent pre-detonation or knock which allows for more power and performance.

Grimmspeed designed this intercooler with two unique end tanks. The first end tank accepts the hot air charge from the turbocharger and feeds the air into the intercooler core. The second end tank receives the cooled charged air from the core and delivers it into the throttle body. These end tanks are precision cast and machined, and the intercooler core will have a bypass valve flange that is milled flat and will come with stainless steel studs that are permanently installed to ensure that the aluminum threads don't become damaged. These end tanks are welded to a high-density bar and plate intercoolers before the entire assembly is pressure tested, cleaned and sealed just before shipment. 

Included with this intercooler are 5-ply silicone couplers, as well as a splitter designed specifically for this intercooler core. The splitter is laser cut from an aluminum sheet and CNC bent and powder-coated for extra protection against corrosion. Stainless steel hardware will be included to secure the splitter to the factory hood scoop. 

Also included will be premium clamps, as well as a seal for the splitter to make this top mount intercooler setup ready for the installation.

I love it 9 months ago
5out of 5stars

This intercooler is massive! It keeps the IAT's significantly lower than the factory intercooler and is perfect for those not wanting or needing to run a front mount. The splitter is easy to install and fits perfectly over the intercool. It can be a little tough to install, especially trying to get the driver side coupler onto the throttle body then to the cooler, but if you stick with it it'll go. A word of caution if you're running the GrimmSpeed AOS you will have to route the lines a little different than what he GrimmSpeed instructions say, as they will push the driver side coupler up and not allow the intercooler to sit properly. I just ran them under the clutch slave cylinder line and wrapped them to prevent chaffing. I'm not sure if there are issues with other AOS.

2012 WRX, money well spent! 2 years ago
4out of 5stars

Installed on 4th of July. 91 F temp. So I just installed and took a nice test drive. This TMIC is great! The stock unit would keep the IAT around 12-14 F above ambient. This GS unit brought temps down to around 10 F above ambient! At highway speed under moderate load I even saw 6 F above ambient, the stock TMIC just isn't capable of this level of performance. I couldn't even get those temps in the cold of a NJ winter driving into the wind. Saw boost pressure drop about 0.5-1, works perfectly with Cobb Stage 2 incl, SF+ and a TBE. NOTE! You should really do yourself a favor and get 16+ new plastic push pins, these will be needed when you install the new duct on the hood. They get brittle over time and will break. Give yourself a little lead time and get them off the web. Subaru was charging $2 a piece...

Great TMIC with one drawback 3 years ago
4out of 5stars

The install was pretty easy, but know that the hose going to the inlet will not seat 100% on the turbo adapter due to the angle - I confirmed this with GS. This unit is WAY beefier than the stock TMIC, both in width and in depth, it looks pretty awesome too ;-). I feel like I lost a pound of boost or so which I'm equating to the increased volume, you 100% need a re-tune to get any performance gain out of this unit, although I'm sure it is doing a better job at cooling my charge.

So sexy 4 years ago
5out of 5stars

This intercooler is top notch quality and looks freaking awesome. I've grown to like grimmspeed, always quality parts. Pretty easy to install, took me like 1hr. I have the cobb accessport and air temps are consistently 20 degrees cooler than stock, plus this top mount is good up to about 650whp according to grimmspeed which in my opinion saves the need for a front mount unless you are ACTUALLY doing a full build and need a front mount.

Massive. 5 years ago
5out of 5stars

After reading the R&D I was deciding between this and the ETS top mount and decided to go with GS. It is massive, always cold, and is really well made. It was tough to wiggle the throttle body hose on but besides that easy peasy. Word of warning, with IAG air oil separator in it is a crammed engine bay but still looks amazing.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Q: 2009 wrx  Wes2 years ago

    Do I need to get a pro tune for this? Or would stage 2 SF+ work?

      A:  Tuning is not required for upgraded intercoolers, but it is recommended if you want to get the full potential from the intercooler.
