Does anybody remember the article in Sports Compact Car where the WRX had minimal gain/minor loss of power with JUST a bigger TMIC? I know I'm not crazy.

Thanks,

I remember that in that article that bigger TMIC shift the torque/power curve to the right. Yes, more turbo lag.

It also took longer for the big intercooler to "cool" back down after heat soak...

Thanks for an excellent FAQ once again Unabomber!

Quick question: Is it reasonable (in most cases) to just multiply the dimensions of the intercoolers as listed in the FAQ to get the in^3 for each intercooler and assume that the one with the biggest volume would exchange the most heat?

Based on all the given dimensions. I can't verify if these are "core" measurements

Code:
Volume in
%overSti (in3)	Brand	             Type
77%	716	X02 Racing	TMIC
67%	675	APS		TMIC
67%	675	SpeedFactor	TMIC
60%	650	MRT		TMIC
57%	635	TurboXS		TMIC
55%	627	Hyperflow	TMIC
50%	608	Helix		TMIC
38%	560	Perrin		TMIC
34%	541	Buschur		TMIC
34%	541	Vishnu		TMIC
34%	541	Worx		TMIC
30%	526	Spearco		TMIC
19%	483	AVO		TMIC
17%	475	PWR		TMIC
2%	414	Cartech		TMIC
0%	405	Sti		TMIC
-6%	382	ARC		TMIC
If you have verfied core dimensions post them up. According to this the e-bay special has the most volume. There's a lot more to a TMIC than volume as we all know.

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but there's more to how good an I/C works than just the size.

It also has to do with the ducting, if you don't have a well fitted splitter/shroud the air is going to take the path of least resistance and go around the I/C instead of through it, or through a smaller area of the I/C if you're using a smaller splitter and a huge I/C. Which would of course negate any benefits of a bigger I/C. It's not as simple as core size like an FMIC, with the top mount, we're trying to make the air make a 90 degree turn and then force it through a restricted area (the I/C) and the shroud is the crucial part of forcing the air through the restricted area.


So you can't rate an intercooler's raw effeciency, only the effeciency of an intercooler as part of a certain setup.

Which is why he said that in his last sentence, there is more to cores than just volume.

AVO lists different dimensions on their website: http://www.avoturboworld.com/avoshop...roducts_id=124

There it is listed as 18.3 x 7.25 x 3.5 (464 in^3). It also shows two different designs in the two pictures; one with a larger bottom endtank (with the AVO logo), the other with a very small bottom endtank and the logo up top.

Your two "TMIC Dyno Test" links appear to no longer work as well.

I can help set the record straight on the core size of the AVO TMIC as measured from mine. (this is the version that comes with the factory blow-off valve flange) 16.25 x 7 x 4.5 = 511.875 cu.

FYI: JDM ver8 and 9 are both the same size as the ver7. USDM is the only STi TMIC that is smaller. I'm in Japan right now and I was able to stop by a Subaru dealership and I was able to check out one of the new STIs there.

Ron,

I think you should add something about AC line rubbage and fixes in this FAQ. Something like bending the lines out of the way, putting foam pads/zipties. Even your MAIC peeps are having issues:

Here's a tidbit you might want to include in the FAQ-

STI splitters from 02-03 seem to fit the stock scoop on 04's and 05's.

Default tmic

i have a question for some of you people i hope that you guys can help me. I installed my tmic and now i think that there might be a pipe loose because when the turbo spools up it is just really loud and when i first put it on it didn't do it. now it is coming from the right side of the car and i hope that someone may be able to help me out. and i also want to know what i should do with the diverter valve piping back to the intake? or atleast how to plug it up. i need help this is really loud and i need to know how to fix it.



thanks

Is there a chance of having leaner air/fuel on a stock sti, due to a bigger TMIC? I hope this wasnt covered already.

If Vishnu is using a Spearco Core, wouldn't they both be the same design (Both Bar and Plate OR Both Tube and Fin)?

Swapping a stock TMIC for a STi TMIC is a popular mod, BUT....

2007 STi & WRX BPV gaskets are different!

I swapped a '07 stock TMIC for a '07 STi TMIC this past week-end, and the stock gasket has changed. A thin "rubber" gasket is used instead of the wide "paper" gasket. Also, the stock BPV flange has been routed to hold the new thin gasket in place.

Solution: go to an auto parts store and buy some "paper" gasket, and cut out the pattern for a new gasket!
