Default ebay front mount

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Subar...QQcmdZViewItem

anyone heard anything about the ebay front mounts?>

I've got the forced air tech top mount (with a perrin core) at the momement...

but I was thinking about upgrading to a front mount.... how much HP gains would I see? I'm gona be running a gt30r....so im assuming it will be worth it

can anyone recomend a good front mount kit?

It will look good. I use the same core and we just put that same one on my friends L and it was a good intercooler kit.

You have any piping picks. My brother and I are using just the piping kits (not the cores) and we can't seem to figure out how the tubing lines up on the left and right sides near the tow hooks.

turbod22: did you have to cut the sheet metal where the piping from the IC makes the U bend?

ninja edit: this kit looks pretty decent. Its less pipes than yours because it combines two.

i think this will be coming to an impreza L in my driveway soon. my custom FMIC **** is the suck.

Yeah you have to cut a little bit out where it bends. The kit orignally posted the ben doesn't really fit right on a gc so be prepared because you need to extend it off the intercooler.
