Default process west TMIC or grimmspeed thermal TMIC?!

tough question for you guys here!

I'm looking for a TMIC that will make more power and keep the engine cooler at the same timing and boost I am at now. Which TMIC would do that for me?

2002 wrx...2.5 short block 2.0 heads 18G turbo tuned at 20 pounds level off at 19 and 10 degrees timing. Car makes 362whp and 354wtq.

I'm running the STI TMIC.

I would like to make a little more horsepower at the same levels with a better top mount and a tune, without raising the boost and without increasing timing!

Has any of you changed to any of these TMIC from the factory STI TMIC and actually saw gains?

Neither - go with the ETS TMIC. Highest flow rate (2000 CFM) and lowest pressure drop of any TMIC out there.

I don't know a lot about the flow and pressure drop specs . but I love the easy no y pipe install. works great with after market turbos.

I have been running the process west
Build quality is great. noticeable increase in performance over the other TMIC i had (Turbo XS)
Would definitely buy another if the need arose.
