I cannot seem to find any website that has TMIC that will fit my 1991 legacy turbo. Does anyone know of a website? TIA!

as far as i know there isn't a direct fit intercooler for our cars, some people have had fairly good luck with some of the older wrx intercoolers, the slanted style that is but they seem to be pretty hard to find, others use the saab 900 ic, its not a direct fit and it's not the most efficient but still alot of ss owners are using it. I think i'm going to go with the usdm wrx ic, there is some modifications that need to be done but it seems to be the best route. check out bbs.legacycentral.org. theres a whole section on intercooling for our cars.

How do you connect the inlet on the stock WRX IC to the turbo outlet? Becaus eI saw a picture of the Rex IC and it had 2 inlets.

ah well I was present for BAC 5.2's install this weekend and you're in luck

however you dont' have an upgraded turbo do you? because BAC 5.2 has a 16G in there and uh, I don't think a WRX IC holds much benefit for the stocker as I think it was decided that you lose charge velocity or something like that

maybe you should try to pick up a Subaru AWIC

The AWIC is cool, but needs a few things....Pump, hoses, radiator and if you are drag racing, a separate cooler tank.

Mine is great on the road, but at the track it gets plenty hot since I don't have the extra coolent resevoir.

i have seen
wrx intercoolers with one inlet fed one inlet blocked off a flange bolted on the bov port and a remote BOV
a,b type impreza intercoolers (slant style)
my recomndation to you is a forester XT intercooler
its much shallower than the wrx, you will still have to move the bov but it is much easyer to deal with

i have a FXT intercooler ready to go on my ej20G .. its my next project waiting for the fed ex man to deliver my wide band so that i can get car in some sort of tune

Well a friend of mine has a EJ20G from a 1995 JDM WRX that I might swap into it, but even then I will still have the stock turbo until I save up for a better one. So I really don't know if its worth even opting for the Saab unit if I swap engines soon.

no cutting anyway

the stock charge hose is too short -which can be solved by buying a samco hose cutting it, extending it with a metal pipe - also adding a vent on that metal pipe for the BOV then making a plate to cover the factory BOV flange

I'd be interested in the forester XT i/c as well.

Even though I already have a Saab i/c in my basement waiting to be put in, I may change my mind if it fits well enough.
