Here it is with a V9 Spec C



It's on top of a twinscroll 16g.

My old thread shows it fitted it in a 2002 WRX.

We have an awesome buy for anyone looking at GR TMICs. 100% new 08+ Sti TMIC. We took it out of the box to snap a photo, that is it. Overall perfect shape. $399 + $25 ship 48 States (retail is just over $600!). Comes exactly as shown.

So yesterday i tried to install a 2011 Sti intercooler on my 06 WRX. There was couple issues that i ran into. I'm running the stock TD-04 btw. First as stated above, the passenger bracket does not reach, you need to extend it out. Second, on the td04 the wastegate actuator line comes out of the top of the actuator and makes a 90 degree turn. So it does not clear the front corner of the intercooler. Third, the 90 degree elbow on the Y-pipe does not reach the turbo inlet on the td04. I figured some people might find this info useful. My solution is to pick up a Vf-39

I'm glad this thread is helping out some members here doing this particular upgrade. I'm getting a few messages regarding leaks and honestly I've personally never seen a stock sti gd/gr sti tmic leak around the crimped endtanks but it's definitely a possibility because the endtanks are not welded from the factory. My best advice to you guys doing this upgrade is to pressure test their IC first before installing them to avoid the headache.

Regards,

Ron

The 08-12 STI TMIC has 8 additional crimps vs 04-07 STi so theoretically is 12% more resistant to leaks, 68 crimps vs 76 crimps, 8/68 = 12%.

yes, the new one is wider end to end, hence the added crimps. I'm pretty certain the strength/failure rate would be the same between the 2 different sizes.

subarugenuineparts.com.

you will find it in their OEM Catalog under: 2011 Impreza WRX - cooling - intercooler - intercooler - support right.

It costs $18.76. I am sure any year 08+ will work, I just chose 2011.

You will also need a bolt to secure the mount to the hole that a 04-07 STi intercooler goes into. It is the same bolt that secures the left side mounting bracket to the intake manifold (there are two there, you only need one extra for the right side though). I just cut the new bracket so I did not have to mess with trying to mount it using all three bolts, you can do it how ever you want though.

Yea I got that bracket and had to cut it because I couldn't figure out where the other end of it mounted. It also hit on my wastegate actuator until I went EWG
