Default Killer B Motorsport Alternator Cover & Radiator Shroud

A little over a month back, I purchased Killer B's radiator shroud and alternator combo for my '12 WRX. The radiator shroud was a piece of cake to install, and looks phenomenal. The alternator cover wasn't difficult to install, but the allen bolts I received were a bit short, and only 1 washer was supplied.

The only reason I mention that the bolts were short is because a few days after the install I opened the hood and one had unscrewed itself and fallen into my underbody tray (skid plate). I had some extra bolts on hand that were a bit longer, and looked a little nicer, so I swapped out the supplied ones with mine after adding some loctite.

Since then, no problems. I've received compliments toward the aesthetics, and I personally find it pleasing. I haven't done any kind of testing to determine if Killer B's claim of "increasing the efficiency of the factory radiator up to 15%" is true or not, but even if it isn't, I'm still 100% happy with this product.

Below is the image they have on their website - I will swap it out with a picture of mine once I get home tonight.



PS Killer B - I'm a large

I had a quewstion as i am having issues getting the Alternator cover bolts out (cause it goes in to deep).

What tool did you use to unscrew it? I've tried torqueing it but can't get it off...

Thanks,
Mike

I just used a 12mm or 10mm socket. I forget which one as I did this a while ago but i know it was really easy to remove the stock and install the Killer B.

Yah. I gotta get the tool cause I just have regular wrenches and I can't get enough leverage. Need something that goes directly on top them screw.

Thanks.

I purchased a Koyo OEM replacement radiator along with the Killer b radiator shroud for my motor swap. According to my shop the radiator shroud will not fit with the Koyo.

According to a Killer B rep who answered my question on Rally Sport Direct's site it the shroud should fit.

Not sure who is correct. I plan on trying myself, but I won't have time till next week.

If it's the OEM replacement (plastic end tanks) it should fit.

Iirc it should fit the Aluminum Koyo also. It's the Mishomoto and Gimmick radiators that have the filler neck in a different location making the part not fit.

^ is correct, I had to make minor adjustments and bent the radiator shroud CAREFULLY to fit a Mishimoto since I had it on there before upgrading and didn't want to repurchase shrouds. Looks great now though!
