I was thinking of buying those and doing a retrofit with them.

Yes I love them...they really put out and a big difference over stock..my only complaint is there one piece so they don't fit as flush like oem...I also don't really like the all chrome look...they would be sweet with the chrome toned down a tad.

I have the SSAC kit on my 94 WRX swap.

Some trimming was required but nothing to crazy. Tucks away pretty good too!

Just received the one i ordered , for the price I'm very happy with it.

Problems i did have on first inspection thou are:

Welds all look nice, except the bov flange looks like it was welded on by a blind 7 year old.

Also on the bov flange interior weld penetration there's alot of metal shavings hanging on by a thread. I will have to grind them off but if someone wouldn't of noticed it would definitely have done some damage. I've had this issue with every single intercooler kit i have purchased from eBay so it was expected.

and also i received all the proper coupling's except for one. I was given a 2" instead of a 2 1/2". Not really a problem since i believe i have 30+ couplings laying around from other intercooler kits I've purchased.

I did the CX Racing kit. All I had to do was cut two pipes and add couplers, then bead roll it. For the bov, the adaptors for the evo's will work. You'll just need another coupler.

Which two pipes did you cut? The hot side by the bottom of the fender, and the hotside right after the turbo? I will be doing this install by Christmas and just want to make sure I have enough couplers. Thx

I think the only problem is that the EJ20G has a different sized intake manifold so things get thrown off a bit. I dont think it's a problem since the couplers give enough bend to make it all work. I never got a whole good kit for mine. I bought a 02+ wrx setup that didnt work but I cant remember what was wrong with it.

Ya, everything fit very well once I cut the pipes. You have to make the cuts anyway, so if you think you need to trim some off to avoid stuff it's no big deal. Btw, you'll really want to have the ends bead rolled. I had the pipes pop off a few times before I finally had it done.

I cut mine once on the top pipe on the hot side and once before the throttlebody. You can see the one on the tb in my previous pic. Here's one of the hotside before I put the pipe on:

i just bough the CXracing kit for my 95 Legacy. (which should cross over with the GC8 with some modification.

so far, the fitment blows.

can anyone take some really detailed pictures of where the kit goes?
im having alot of issues with the second pipe. (hot side, right before the intercooler.)

so far the best fit for my car is to route it behind the head light and cut the "J" part right before the intercooler.

seriously more pics the better.


anyways here is mine on the dyno.. (as it sits now)

In my GC8, there are 2 holes in the inside of the engine bay by the fender. Like in this picture that was posted above your post.


I'm not sure if the legacys have those holes there though.

If you do, then route your hotside through them and then to the intercooler core.
