Default CNT Top Mount Intercooler

Has anyone installed a CNT TMIC on an 08+ WRX?

Just curious to hear any positives or negatives on this intercooler as there is not much searchable information out there on this product.

The Torx is a knockoff of the Perrin design and suffers the same fitment issues. Trust me, I have the Perrin. That being said, the Process West design (which the CNT is a replica of) does have a good amount more surface area to dissapate heat. If you do a google search you can find info on flow testing on all of these. The Torx and other Perrin knock offs actually flow worse than stock so I would avoid those. The Cnt and FMS replicas have tested well, though keep in mind that the price point is not THAT far off the Perrin. If you are going to do this do it right the first time!
