Well, 7 hours and half a pack of smokes later, the PW is on my car. Everything seems to be running well! I still have not sent my logs to my tuner for review, but from what I can see the car seems to like the PW. I took a few pics of my engine bay. You can see where I had to re-route the BPV hose. I think I may try to re-do this hose again as I don't really like the way it looks. I also noticed the stock throttle body -> IC hose had a large bulge in the bottom. It looks like it would have exploded in another few thousand miles lol.


Here are some pics (sorry for the crappy Droid pics):

Mine seems to fit perfect when closing the hood. I can see the new hood scoop is sitting perfectly on top of the PW TMIC. When you say the hose on the left side, you are referring to the turbo --> IC hose correct?

EDIT: I couldnt get a good picture of the splitter using my phone, but here are some pics of the Turbo --> IC hose. I will try to get a decent pic of the splitter with the hood closed later:

Hmm, I dont think you would be able to flip that hose. I believe the ends of the hose are a different size, so if you tried to flip it the end that connects to the turbo flange would be too big and the end that connects to the IC would be too small. I did notice when I finished the install that the hose looked like it was bent a little. After looking at a few pics/posts online it seems this is normal.

Yeah that hose will not seat correctly cause of the angle of the gasket which is meh. Mine is up more on the right side then the left. I cant figure out why its doin that.

I think my hose diameter is smaller than yours. Ill post when i can.

Jammon, I sent you a PM

I figured I would post up a little more info about the PW and tuning. In my case Eric @ TP had to make some adjustments to my map. After installing the PW, I noticed my AF Learning 1A value was pretty high (around +7-8%). Eric had me do a special log after which he made some adjustments to my map. He seems to have nailed it as my AF Learning 1A values are now back in an acceptable range (all of my other learning values seemed to be just fine after the install). I am still waiting for confirmation that my latest logs are okay but based on my review the car seems to like the PW. I would definitely recommend taking a few logs after you install this just to confirm you don't need any adjustments. BTW, this thing definitely seems to have been worth it. With the stock TMIC, I noticed the car would become sluggish after sitting a stop light for a few minutes. The car would remain sluggish for a few seconds after leaving the stop light as well. I assume this was due to heat soak. With the PW, I have not yet run into this issue even in +90F temps. Throttle response also seems to be a little better and my butt dyno tells me the car seems to pull better as well (after my map was adjusted). Definitely worth it IMO.

Also, here are some pics of my hood scoop:

I just went back through some earlier posts and I saw you mentioned you had someone fab a custom bracket. Was the the bell housing bracket you had to fab? I'm wondering if that could be causing the issue??

my pw gets very hot if i am sitting in traffic. i was in traffic going to work and when i got thee the tmic was very hot. the cool side was pretty warm. i have a turbo blanket and dp, not sure if you have a dp or not. i need to throw a heatshield on there as well. on a hot day cruising, the ic was way cooler. and, just fyi, i had my car tuned on my stock tmic, and i went back for my e85 tune with the bigger tmic. on the pump retune i gained almost 30ftlbs in torque, and a whopping 1hp

Well the right side is holding it up fine. The hood splitter sits fine on the right side. Its just the left side that sucks. Gotta keep twisting it around to keep it up but it never wants to sit there.

Its stupid how a hose is supposed to hold something that heavy up. I mocked the extended bracket w a piece of metal and used the stock arm bar. Other than that its no bother just the left side. Is your heat shield helping hold up the hose? I have a blanket on also

so did you not get the mount that bolts to the transmission and to the bottom of the intercooler? the hose on the passenger side cant support all the weight

edit, it might not be the trans but it goes by the trans on the back side of the motor

edit 2, its that black bracket in the 1st post 1st pic

You mean the intake manifold then extended brank and arm?

It doesnt matter about the driver side just trying to work on the passenger side. Its a load of bs. But co wrx take a pic under that hose and see if anything is supporting it up.

His hose is newer mine isnt haha

Ill take some pics of the transmission bracket here in a few. The PW IC should be supported by two brackets: one on the drivers side that connects to the plastic intake manifold (its the same bracket used on the stock IC; PW supplies an extension piece to make it fit the PW IC. It sounds like you fab'd the extension piece yourself). The other bracket is on the passenger side and connects to the top of the transmission bell housing using two bolts. It supports the passenger side of the IC from underneath by bolting to the bottom of it. It has a curve to it which kind of wraps around the top of the turbo.

Edit: here is a good picture of the passenger side bracket. Its the black piece on the far right side of the pic, shaped kind of like a "j"
Without this bracket I can definitely see how the IC would not sit flush with the hood scoop since the only thing supporting the left side of the IC would be the turbo hose.

That's a pretty good bump in torque! Eric sent me a final map yesterday and I can definitely feel a bit of a difference, especially when moving from a stop. Things just seem much smoother now.

HA problem solved another arm bracket. Guess i can fab one up. I havent looked but i will tonight and thank you cowrx.

I love fab things up cause it makes working on the car so much fun. I mean its work but i cant deny that its also a good experience for those who are willing to actually out in work in their car. Even though i bought it used MEH at least its doing what its supposed to then i am okay with that.

That's great news! Glad everything is sorted now. That's cool you are willing/able to fab stuff like this (I wouldn't know where to start!). If you can, post some pics once you're done creating the bracket. I would like to see the end result!

I might need a pic and look under my tmic. Il text ya.

Cause in this world you can do anything if you have the tools. I dont but i know friends that do and are willing to wrench which is good for me and my friend cause we always want to do something.

On another note to me its not about racing and lauching cause i am not rich and can afford blocks and trannies bht i like that feeling of sharp turns and MEBOOSTA! That 21psi sounds fun (you should be around that w this tmic)

i saved you the trouble, 2 pics, one where it bolts to the trans, the other where it bolts to the bottom of the ic. id like to see what you come up with, seems like it needs to be the perfect length so it seals right against the shroud

I am actually running a Torqued Performance Stage 1 map so I max out around 17.5-18 PSI. The main reason I purchased the PW TMIC was because my stock one was starting to separate. Instead of trying to fix it or replacing it with another stock TMIC I decided to get a more robust piece. This way, I never have to worry about leaks due to the end tanks falling apart. Plus, it looks awesome IMO

Yeah I absolutely love what his map did for my car. There was definitely a noticeable bump in power over the Cobb OTS maps. Plus, his customer service is outstanding. I have been working with him since late 2012 and he has always responded to my emails within a few hours.

I was on a custom stage 3 (his definition) TP E85 map with this intercooler. I was right around 350WHP

You know, I just took another look at my pics, and it looks like I may have two issues with the turbo outlet hose:
1. the hose appears to be kinked at the bend right before the hose connects to the IC

2. the hose looks like its rubbing a bit against the IC.

Does anyone else notice these issues on their installs?

EDIT: it looks like the turbo hose is rubbing on a black coolant line going into the turbo as well. Im not too worried about that one since its just a rubber hose but I am a little concerned about the IC eventually tearing a hole in the silicon turbo hose.

Itll rub either way cause of how the flange is.

Make sure the clamp doesnt rub. Ill look again but if it rubs it rubs and its silicone and tough to rip.
