Default Innercooler tubing size

I have used the search feature and can not find any info on Innercooler tubing size. I would be using an innercooler that mounts in front. What diameter is typically used?

3 inches on the hotside, 2.5 on the cold side IIRC is what most kits use...

2.5 should be fine for anything a piggybacked N/A ecu can generate (400whp @ the most id say)

I have a 26" long by 6" tall by 3" thick Innercooler setup from another application that I was thinking of using. Would it be too restrictive? I am looking at running 6 to 7 PSI Boost.

Actually I have two Projects I am looking at Turbo charging. One is my 2006 Impreza. It will end up being a complete STI 2.5 motor swap. The other one is a 2000 RS N/A 2.5 motor going into an offroad car. This is the one that I am refering to in regards to the Innercooler. The motor will be replacing a Turbo charged 2332 VW motor. My intensions are to reuse as many parts I can. That would include the Innercooler, BOV. T3 60 trim Turbo, Exhaust system with blastgate and Dry Sump oil system. I will be mating the motor to a VW 4 speed 6 rib trans via a Kennady Engineering adapter plate. I will be using an OEM Subaru ECU and wiring Harness along with a GReddy Ultimate EMU, MAP sensor and Boost control solinoid. Hope thats enough Info. I also hope I dont offend any one here with this application.

i would avoid a fmic in any off-road situation unless you know its only gonna be smooth gravel roads..fmics are 100% better then tmics, but they are alot more vulnerable to damage.

i watched a truck tire asplode on the nj turnpike and it came down just in time for me to smash into it going 70 mph..left a few bent fins on my fmic

The innercooler is currently mounted up high behind the seats. The car is an open tube frame Woods Buggy. Here is a link to some pics of it: http://woodsbuggy.com/ody.html

Thank you much. It was a lot of work. I just built it this year. Several of my buddies are running Subie motors in there cars. The Subie motor has great low end torque for this application.

why is it every time someone post a thread in N/A forceinduction...seems like the moderators take it down instead of leaving it in the forum...which ends up having people go to N/A to ask a question.....moderators it might be a good idea to leave posts alone when up in the right forum...just my 2 cents. Then you wouldn't have to cry about it in N/A build up forums.

I to want to swap a EJ257 in my 06 impreza but Idon't think the tranny can handle alot of hard driving or launch's which is why I'm going with the EJ255 and maybe a cobb tune see where I'm at...I'm sure it will work and I know it'll bolt right up to it but...hard take offs not even launch's on the 2nd gear...only a matter of time. If you find out anything post it I might just go with the sti seeing as its only a grand more than the wrx 4500 over 5400...well worth it seeing as thats how much you'll have to spend to get sti power out of it.
