GrimmSpeed Top Mount Intercooler Kit Thermal Black Coating 2015-2021 WRX
Replace that undersized, plastic stock intercooler with a GrimmSpeed Top Mount Intercooler Kit, featuring cast aluminum end tanks, large bar and plate core and TIG welded construction. The factory FA20 DIT TMIC is well-suited for stock applications, but when boost levels are increased, the higher post-turbo air temps contribute to pre-detonation (or 'knock') and loss in power. The GrimmSpeed intercooler is designed to keep charge temps consistent during aggressive driving so that the rest of your parts can work to make power.;We tested the OEM TMIC, GrimmSpeed TMIC and a leading competitor TMIC in a back to back to back comparison and used our multi-sensor data acquisition system to evaluate temperature deltas, intercooler efficiency, pressure drop and more.
High Efficiency and Flow - Other manufacturers focus on cooling without understanding the damage that high restriction can do to a cars ability to produce power.
Two-Piece Splitter Design - Other manufacturers re-purpose or modify the stock engine cover. GrimmSpeed has replaced it entirely with an innovative two-piece design.
Optional Upgraded Charge Pipe - Use of the GrimmSpeed Charge Pipe is optional, allowing you to upgrade at your own pace.
Designed and Manufactured Locally - Ensuring repeatable quality, clean components and consistent assembly
13.1in x 10in x 3.75in Cross Flow Core - careful balance of high heat transfer and low pressure drop
Cast Aluminum End Tanks - featuring machined splitter mounting features
5-Ply Silicone Couplers - custom molded and reinforced for demanding environments
Fully-Integrated Two-Piece Splitter - collects air from the entire width of the scoop and feeds it directly to the core
Water Meth 1/8 NPT Bung - Cast into the outlet end tank, CNC machine tapped and plugged for future use
Vibration Isolation Mounting - protect the intercooler system from fatigue due to vibration by reusing the factory mounts
Cleaned, Inspected and Sealed Prior to Shipping - prevent motor damage due to foreign matter
