Its a pity Kevin hasn't posted pressure drop across the ic or finished writing up a test with it fitted to an STi.

It's also a pity he won't respond to my questions or PM's after he used my thread for advertising.

Its an innovative product he has developed and it looks like he is filling back-order lists so I guess they are walking out the door. He is obviously busy but he stated early on he would do the STi TMIC comparo, lets hope he holds to it.

BUMP...

I talked to Dan at Prodrive and he mentioned to me how important it is for the gasket on the splitter to be 100% sealed on the TMIC. I noticed today that the Turbo XS I have isn't long enough and the gasket is left open on the passenger side.

This is bad for STI owners, as I have an STI splitter gasket.

Is the Process west out yet?

Bump. I just got a TurboXS (replica) TMIC and the stock WRX splitter is literally half the size of the intercooler.

Thinking of either the STI splitter or the Process West splitter.

2007 STI, Walbro fuel pump, tomei headers / uppipe, Aps Turboback Exhaust, Man Boost controller, Fujita cold air intake, stock: turbo, injectors, fuel lines, engine....question, i know this is an older post, so hopefully someone will respond to me... But I'm planning on getting a AMR top mount intercooler, (so far the largest on the market and great reviews)...But I also want to get a larger Hood scoop... any ideas on both as in terms of will the larger hood scoop assist from the stock...(not into the FMIC at this time, cause its much more expensive, and I am not crazy about ruining the integrity of the chassis at this point as I live in NYC and..... I am also staying around the 400 whp range..OH...one more thing, should I look into changing any of the Turbo inleft tubes or would that not really matter until I change the turbo...the same going for the inlet tube from the COLD air intake.... thanks so much guys.....

Welllllll..... since the thread is back from the dead....

When will Process West have a shroud/splitter available for the LGT? It's a proverbial kick in the teeth to have it available for the Forester and not the LGT. One splitter would open buying potential to another complete market...

Fair amount of interest in this thread...

http://legacygt.com/forums/showthrea...ic-119336.html

Heck, the shroud/splitter purchased alone is $227. If I buy the WRX kit I get $227 worth of parts I don't need and can't use... give me a comparable discount and I'll fab a splitter/shroud and send you the prototype....

Thank you Kev, much appreciated! PM me if you need any detailed pictures or measurements on the US model while you work with the test car.

Ok, so here's a question for you Kev ...
When you look at the left side of both the OEM splitter and the Process West splitter, you see the area that is nor directly under the scoop, but is still perforated which allows air to escape into the engine bay.

Why not change the design, so that the left side of the splitter (and maybe the right side of the splitter as well) takes that air that flows into the engine bay and re-directs it over the intercooler?

One would think that this will add additional cooling to the intercooler.

A second question I thought of, becuase I don't remember seeing the answer anywhere ...

How much HP do you believe your TMIC will support, and retain it's high degree of cooling/performance? For example, IF the Process West TMIC can handle up to 800WHP, when would the peak performance characteristics of the TMIC be reached? 500WHP?

That area is to vent hot air from the turbo and allow fresh air to help cool it when moving.

PM the vendors that currently sell the PW unit. They will more than likely give you a much better deal than what they have advertised on their site.

I recently saw that as I'm about ready to buy one. I wish I had purchased it last year now. RSD also shows that they don't expect the 04-05 until the end of August

Looks like I found the answer to my question ...

These features allow the intercooler to work better for longer, and also allow a larger amount of air to pass through the core. The combination of these things will allow this intercooler to handle upwards of 400WHP.
