Features & Product Details

RallySport Direct is proud to carry the Process West Verticooler. This unconventional slant-mount intercooler design increases rapid air-charge cooling long with a better flow path efficiency to improve the performance of your vehicle. This takes the top-mount design to another level that guarantees better performance and improved engine durability.

Here are the key features:

  • Combines the advantages of a large and free-flowing core that mounts this new intercooler at a 15° near verticle angle at the engine bay
  • New hood duct design included that force-feeds external airflow straight onto the intercooler fins
  • The mounting angle creates a highly efficient air exit path which pushes air down the engine bay and out of the underside of the car
  • Largest volume of any aftermarket intercooler for the GR WRX
  • 400mm Flow length x 205mm stack height x 1200 thick
  • Comes provided with multi-layered silicone fiber couplers
  • Comes provided with all the required brackets and hardware to make the Verticooler ready for the installation 
  • Black finish
  • Please note if you purchased a VertiCooler from RallySport Direct before 03/27/2015 and you require the newly designed bracket, please contact our Customer Service Team.

    Solved bov fitment issues 3 months ago
    Dell
    After drilling a new holes from the mounting bracket, I was able to shift the intercooler a bit to the left. Just enough clearance to fit the turbo smart dual port bov. Have to cut the throttle body hose a bit and the other hose atthed to the bov to fit perfectly.

    2011 WRX. Install was pretty simple and quick. I am blown away by the results. Looks super clean and a very noticeable performance gain over OEM tmic. I didn't realize how much the stock intercooler was holding me back. Worth the $... only complaint is the hose clamps aren't the quality I was expecting. I ended up using most of them but likely to replace them soon.

    Process West Verticooler 1 year ago
    Brad
    What can I say, I am very pleased with the verticooler. The kit came with quality silicone hoses and hardware. The welds on the verticooler look amazing. It took a few tires to get the fitment just right, but it definitely is a tight fit in the engine bay. I have to say after getting tuned with the verticooler, my engine responded very well with it. When they say leave the bolts loose and do not tighten them, they are right. The bolt that holds the verticooler to the transmission was a pita, but after a few tries I was able to bolt it down. It took some wiggling around to get everything lined up correctly. Overall, I’m very pleased with my purchase of this verticooler. It looks very nice in the engine bay and performs very well. To me, it’s well worth the money.

    Fitment was a bit tricky with my GoFastBits BPV, and a couple other things, but not a deal breaker. The welds on this intercooler are beautiful and the quality is really nice. When you hold the core next to the stock one, it is crazy how much bigger the Verticooler is. All the hardware and silicone bits are high quality, too. The air duct that attaches to the hood scoop is super gnarly! You can tell how much better the flow will be just by looking at it. The kit came with detailed instructions with colored pictures that were very easy to follow. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this part to anyone else looking to upgrade their WRX intercooler.

    Excellent Quality! Huge!  3 years ago
    gabrielcorona8256241
    Had this verticooler for almost 8 months to go with my cobb stage 2+ and protune. Intake temps have been low as expected. It still gets a little heat soak if its stop and go traffic but after driving up to at least 30mph on a green light, temps drop quickly! Install could be a little tricky and I did what the other reviews did by keeping bolts loose until its ready to be bolted down. The long bolt that fastens to the transmission could be a little tricky but not impossible. The same thing goes with the the cobb heat shield...its a little tight but it did fit.

      Will this fit with my COBB Heat Shield for the downpipe?
    • Q: Intake temps  RogueMTB2 months ago

      What would the accurate, consistent temperatures be with 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.

        A:  Yes 100%. Drive as hard as you like, pop the hood and the intercooler outlet tank will be cold to touch.

        A:  Unfortunately, we are unable to confirm fitment with the AEM strut brace. I would recommend consulting the forums or a local group to see if someone has been able to run this combination successfully.
