Default 2006 WRX intercooler tapped for meth?

Hey nasioc! First off, I did try searching on here and Google but couldn't find the answer to my question. Do to size constraints, I am only able to run a 2006 WRX intercooler with my turbo build but I would like to run a wmi system for added security. Are the plastic intercoolers able to be tapped for meth, if not what are my alternatives? Also does anyone happen to know who makes these?

Thanks for your time,

Thanks for the reply Socal, this is the intercooler in question. It has hard plastic endtanks instead of the metal ones from the STI's and earlier WRX's

I'm sure you'll be ok to tap the plastic tank. But I am also curious as to who makes that silicon coupler.

You can always just use the sylicone coupler you already have.

Or you can go with the much cheaper plastic version from snow performance

That looks like it would work very well. Do you know if it works with all methanol nozzles? I have a Coolingmist kit on the way and if I can avoid drilling and tapping the intercooler I will.

I went ahead and ordered that one..Boy am I dissapointed. Its not a screw type of fitting that would compress in between the silicone. Its more of a push type of fitting, that you would push inside the silicone hose. How how the hell is that supposed to seal under boost?
I should of went with the Snow performance one. Even thought it is plastic, it actually looks like it would seal half descently.
