ol'skool is right, but just for the record i think the turbo xs will be more effective than the STi cooler.

I have a V7 JDM STi TMIC, and I am happy with it. The reason I bought it over anything else was that I had heard that any other TMIC necessitates pulling the IC just to check/change the tranny fluid. That could be a myth, however.

Depends on your mod path. If you're staying stock turbo, I think STi is the way to go. For bigger turbo, the TurboXS is very nice, and fitment is excellent. I ran one on my 02 rex for about 2 years, but as I said, on stock turbo, I really think its a pretty expensive piece of overkill.
