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. 

**The intercooler core will come in a black powder-coated finish for those of you who want the cleaner, streamlined stealth look in your engine bay.**

Notes:

04-05 Forester XT requires an STI BOV and STI BOV recirculation hose.

WRX and Forester models will need OEM STI or GrimmSpeed Y-Pipe Kit

Splitter is sold separately

Wall art for your car. 9 months ago
Sean W.
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  11 months ago
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.

Quality as expected from grimmspeed 2 years ago
Gregan
Installed on a vf39+ forester. I have not retuned since installing this part quite yet, I have a couple other things I need to finish before I go in. Finish looks fantastic, flanges are cleanly cut, coating looks even, bars and fins appear stronger than the STi intercooler, so it shouldn't get as beat up from rocks and bugs. Install was a breeze, actually easier to squeeze in between the ac line and manifold than the STi intercooler thanks to the shape of the end tanks. I did have my AC line already adjusted from the STi intercooler and it needed no further adjustment. The slotted mounting tabs on the sides make it a lot easier to get in as well. I paired this with some company 23 TMIC studs and the BPV went on with no problems. Great intercooler, one of my favorite things I have installed as far as overall performance and cosmetic gains.

This intercooler is top quality! Fit great on my 13 sti. I noticed my intake temps are reading a lower too! Install was a little tricky but that is the same with any top mount intercooler. Grimmspeed includes everything needed to install this which is awesome! If you are looking to upgrade your intercooler I highly recommend this intercooler!!

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Q: Turbo Compatibility (2012 wrx)   BillNye23 days ago

    What are turbo recommendations that would be rated from 400-500 whp to combo with this intercooler? People are telling me that I will need an adapter for most turbos to confirm fitment since I don't have an STI...
    • 1 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Your power potential with different turbos would depend heavily on your fuel choice, injectors, motor internals, and other power mods. This TMIC won't work with the LGT/08-14 WRX intake manifold. However, Grimmspeed makes part numbers 090010 & 090044, which would work for your vehicle. I'd recommend consulting your tuner for the best advice for your specific build, but E85, a built short block, and a turbo that flows around ~55-60 lbs a min would be a good starting point.

  • Q: rotated turbo kit  gary 23043 months ago

    hi i am in the middle of a 600bhp build and i am in 2 minds whether to go top or frontmount. will this intercooler handle this amount of power plus will it still fit ok because i will have a rotated turbo kit. many thanks
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  A rotated kit will require some modification to the turbo outlet piping in order to fit with this TMIC. However, several people have run this TMIC over 500whp without issues.

  • Q: Grimmspeed TMIC  ITS FL4T1 year ago

    I see a lot of reviews on how great it looks what about how it performs? Any data? Also is there a splitter now for the GR Sti?
    • 1 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Please refer to Grimmspeeds website for technical info: http://www.grimmspeed.com/top-mount-intercooler-subaru-02-07-wrx-04-17-sti/ And we do carry the splitter for the GR Series STI but it is special ordered from Grimmspeed.
