Features & Product Details

An intercooler upgrade is a great way to equip your flat-four with a cool charge of air! A cool, dense charge of air can allow for more aggressive tuning and increased power. The Mishimoto Subaru WRX/STI Top-Mount Intercooler Kit provides a unique option for upgrading your charge air system. This kit utilizes a single entry inlet compared to the stock Y-pipe setup. This unique tank design provides maximum airflow and superior air dispersion through the core, a process which results in optimal AIT reduction. This intercooler uses a high efficiency bar-and-plate core which provides increased volume and improved heat transfer. The kit is completely bolt-on, requiring zero modifications to your vehicle. The Mishimoto intercooler kit includes silicone bypass hoses for both the WRX and STI, a silicone crankcase ventilation hose, a bypass valve gasket, a silicone throttle body hose, and all the T-bolt clamps and hardware necessary for installation. This intercooler kit has endured rigorous testing on both stock and modified vehicles and has proven to increase power and reduce air intake temperatures. On our 305 hp test vehicle running 20–22 psi of boost, this intercooler provided a 14 hp increase and a 30°F drop in AITs compared to the stock STI intercooler– for more testing details, check out the engineering report! Thanks to a precision engineered and tested core construction, this intercooler will support vehicles with up to 350 hp.

Decent Product, Needs some quality control 2 years ago
Pros: -Overall happy with this TMIC, works well. Cons: -Comes with no instructions (none online either), normally not a problem except that it comes with two different hoses for the Re-circulation valve with no explanation. (one is for WRX, other is STI) -Mishimoto hose clamps which were included were too big for both sides of the Turbo to TMIC hose(continued below) -Re-circulation hoses were too tight to fit on OEM blow-off valve. Overall I like the product, however I do regret not going with a FMIC setup. Setup was a hassle for what should be a fairly simple install due to undersized tubing. Spent nearly and hour trying different methods to get the piping onto the factory Re-circulation valve. Temps are pretty good, only 10-12 F above ambient when cruising, doesn't lose heat soak very quickly below 60mph. Looks good in engine bay. The only real major complaint I have is the hose clamps that were packaged with this TMIC. The clamps for both side of the Turbo to Intercooler hose were too big (barely) and would not tighten all the way down. This caused an issue as I was on the way to the auto parts store to get some replacement hose clamps where the hose popped off the intercooler, I lost control of the vehicle due to the stalled engine and no power steering around a dirt corner and ended up hitting a pole. Luckily only fender damage, still around a $500 fix. I know it is mostly my fault for driving with the clamps on but could have been avoided by some quality control. I would only suggest to those who really don't want to go with a FMIC or just want a replacement for your stock intercooler, is not really a huge upgrade from stock STI.

Good intercooler for a good price 4 years ago
I got this inter cooler because I needed something a bit bigger than stock and the new turbo fitment wasn't perfect. The S-hose allows for much flexibility during installation. I found my temps to be about the same as stock.

  • Q: Heat shield compatible?  Al 04 WRX WRB16 days ago

    Hi I have a 04 WRX with beltt mouth DP, and want to get this TMIC, but I am also wondering if the side hose interferes with the heat shield placement....
  • Q: Mishimoto topmount intercooler   Brandons subie23 days ago

    I was just wondering if the way it connects on the turbo side of intercooler would that affect a heat shield? Would the hose be in the way?
  • Q: Tune   SQuID3 years ago

    This will require a tune after installation correct?
