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 Kit. 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 intercooler core finish
  • 17.5" x 8.7" x 3.5" cross-flow core 
  • Provides a great balance of high-heat transfer and low-pressure drop
  • Cast aluminum end tanks 
  • Machined BPV flange for precision fitment and a perfect seal
  • Includes 5-ply silicone couplers that are custom-molded and reinforced to withstand the demanding environments
  • Includes Wide Mouth Splitter to effectively collect air from the entire width of the scoop
  • Designed with vibration isolation mounting to protect the intercooler system from fatigue due to vibration
  • Includes stainless steel BPV studs to avoid the risk of damaging aluminum threads
  • Thoroughly cleaned, inspected, and sealed by GrimmSpeed prior to shipment

    I love it 1 year 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! 3 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 4 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?
      • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

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