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 4 years ago
5out of 5stars

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: Fitment  Chuck9 months ago

    How comes it says it won’t fit my 09 Forester XT I’m pretty sure it will the WRX and XT have The same chassis and engine?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Their 08-14 WRX or 05-09 LGT top mount intercoolers are made specifically for their listed vehicle fitment. It is possible to use their 08-14 WRX or 05-09 LGT top mount intercooler in a 2009 Forester XT, but *only *the intercooler itself will fit. The intercooler splitter will *not* work on the Forester XT.

  • Q: requirements   Quinnyames1 year ago

    what parts and specs do i need to run this intercooler ?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  This will work on an otherwise stock vehicle, although a vehicle with minor bolt on upgrades and a tune will see the most benefit from it.

  • Q: Intake temps  RogueMTB2 years 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?
    • 0 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

      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.
