When you are upgrading to a larger turbo or driving the car hard it is important to keep the air charge as cool as possible. Even though the stock intercooler is able to flow sufficient air, it is still only designed for mild driving and stock power levels.

When pushing the car hard, the stock intercooler will heat soak quickly and take a long time to cool back down. This causes the performance of the motor to decline and power to suffer. The Process West intercooler is a direct factory replacement that features a larger than stock core and lower pressure drop. These 2 features previously stated allow the intercooler to flow more air while reducing the amount of pressure that is lost over the surface of the intercooler. These features allow the intercooler to work better for longer and also allow a larger amount of air to pass through the core. The combination of these things will allow this intercooler to handle upwards of 400WHP. This Process West TMIC includes everything needed to make it a direct factory replacement.

Process west tmic 2013 sti hatchback
1 year ago
This intercoller is great. Had a process west that was designed for a 03-05 sti, but modified it to work on my car. Up until janurary of this year got tired of having the wrong one on my car. So as a result i listed the old one on ebay and brought the proper one in the black finish. Love it, very well made, kind of on the heavy side but my iat's are very good and the fitment is next to none. Would recommend this product to anyone who doesn't want to go for a fminc like myself. Also can't complain that this unit will support up to 500 awhp which may be in my cars future someday. As for the other mods, car has bigger injectors, cold air intake, electronic boost contoller, and a cobb v3 tuner. Car was protuned by turbotec tuning in albany ny, and on e-85 it made 350awhp and 400 ft pounds of on torque on a safe tune. On 93 octane it made 320hp 350tq. Overall great upgrade over the stock intercooler.

Great intercooler and great fitment. Full bolt ons, Full fuel system on e85, and cobb 20g all on stock block pushing 445whp and 444trq. Will be building block and head soon. Going to go rotated with either a p&l 30r or 35r shooting for 550-600whp while keeping the pw tmic and see how it can stand up to the power. I'll keep you all posted when it happens.

Easy Install, looks great, should be cooler

Installed in about 30 min- found a YouTube video recommending taking off the driver side mounting bracket; I did and the unit dropped right in. The next 45 minutes was trying to wrangle my SPT strut bar back in - no such luck - the driver side corner hits; The whiteline fits however with about 1/4 to 3/8" to spare! Wrapped the sides/ends with DEI gold tape...looks good, by all accounts will keep the temps down. Will have to wait until this summer to see how much...

  • Q: What size is the T plastic piece or fitting ?  Cflo23 8 months ago


    Looking to see what diameter I need to buy ? " I ended up going to Home Depot and getting 2 black fittings for it because the white stood out a little much. I LOVE this intercooler and Process West never lets you down." Quoted from Megan from first Post

    • A: You will need to purchase 1/2 inch. Let us know if you have any other questions.

  • Q: combo with Turbosmart Kompact Plumb Back  DEASubie 2 years ago


    This is shown to include both a BPV gasket and mounting bolts for the BPV, I'm curious if these address the negative aspects from the reviews of the TS Kompact which are: The factory bolts (stock IC) are too long and need to be replaced, and the gasket included with the BPV is a cheap paper gasket. Will the TS Kompact bolt right up to this IC with the supplied hardware, or do I need to get other bolts? How is the quality of the gasket included with this IC versus the one included with the BPV? I'm ready to buy next week and I want to know this BPV is going to bolt right up without washers.

    • A: Included with this intercooler are new BoV bolts. They are slightly shorter than the OEM bolts and will work well with the Turbosmart Plumb Back Valve.
