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. 

Note that this particular intercooler core will come powder-coated in the black finish for those of you who want the stealth look in your engine bay.

Great topmount solution 2 years ago
subarman
This thing is beefy! Much heavier than I thought it would be, and it definitely takes up a lot of space in the engine bay. I can no longer readily see my cool turbo heatshield, and my Perrin strut brace won't fit anymore, but those are small tradeoffs. Install was a lot more work compared to just messing with the stock intercooler. I also installed this with a good bit of supporting mods (recommend at least a boost controller, downpipe, and proper tune), and I've seen a massive power increase with no extra lag on my VF52 turbo. There will always be a debate about painted black VS unpainted; bottom line is you will not feel any measurable difference, so I just got the black to help prevent any oxidation that might occur on the exterior over time. It also looks cooler, in my opinion. Great product, insanely expensive, but very pleased overall.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Q: Intake temps  RogueMTB2 months ago

    What is the accurate, consistent temperatures I can get when running this intercooler? Would I be able to do pulls, pop the hood, and it be cool to the touch?

      A:  Unfortunately, we would not be able to confirm temperatures you will see on your vehicle as different mods will affect this as well as the vehicle.

  • Q: Hose Color  widowmakerex9 months ago

    When ordering this intercooler and kit, is there an option to switch out the black piping/hoses' for the red ones?
  • Q: fitment and tune re touch   Rycal subie 2 years ago

    will this cause any issues with the cobb heat shield? would installing and running with the cobb stage 2 sf ots map be harmful for my car?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  You shouldnt have any fitment issues. Running this intercooler without a custom tune will not be harmful, but you will not notice much in the way of HP gains without a custom tune. That map would be safe for use with this intercooler.

      A:  The black coating on this unit is a thermal dispersant coating. The coating will increase the amount of heat transferred between the aluminum intercooler and the ambient air flowing over the TMIC. -Andy
