FWIW, I purchased a 2" ID from here - http://www.siliconeintakes.com/
Direct link - http://www.siliconeintakes.com/index...01078ee9aee664

It was the correct length/size so I did not have to do any additional cutting. The only thing I am missing out of is the "Samco" label. For the price, I am sure it will be able to withstand the capabilities of MY07. If not, I only wasted $17 and I have a template for cutting to the correct size. I will post pics when I get a chance.

FWIW....I was able to install the USDM STI TMIC and retain my Samco TMIC to TB hose (same length as stock) and use the stock STI "y" pipe and stock red STI elbow hose.

I slotted the 2 holes on the driver side I/C bracket where it mounts to the manifold. There isn't enough material on the passenger side I/C bracket to slot the holes so I used a simple square peice of metal with 2 holes to accommodate the 1-.75 inch difference between the I/C bracket and TMIC. Worked like a charm...

Default Sti Tmic

OK, I installed an 05 STI TMIC in my 07 WRX LTD. Everybody has different measurements they used for their hoses. I used Hose Techniques brand hoses on my install. I used their NX500 series for both the 90 degree elbow and the Straight Hose. For the elbow I aligned the mount bracket holes to those on the IC and placed the hose in its place. After marking with a sharpie I removed it and little by little I cut from the both ends until I had the perfect fit, and after having success with the elbow I did the same with the straight Hose. I also replaced the stock WRX Splitter and the Splitter duct seals with those of the 06-07 STI, which I bought at Subarugenuineparts.com. Since the 06-07 WRX Hood scoops are the same as the 06-07 STI, there was no need for replacing it. This took about a half hour but only because I took my time. Here is my end state pics. Hope this helps others. The best advice I have for anybody doing this mod is trim the hoses little by little until you get the wanted outcome. One more thing, T-Bolt Clamps are a good investment.

Stock Parts







For My 07 WRX LTD I didnt have to bend or put any padding on the AC Lines, they wrap around enough so that they do not rub. Many of the other WRX guys claim they have rubbing on their lines.

Oh the hoses I used from Hosetechniques.com are their 2" (51mm) ID 90 Degree Elbow Coupler, and the 2.75" (70mm) ID Straight Hose (3.00" Long). Both from their NX500 series. There was no need for bracket adjustment or fabricating for this mod, just trimed the hosed as needed and installed.

Sorry if this has been mentioned before but..

If anyone is going back into this thread, the part numbers are slightly different now according to hose techniques website. And cheaper

This thread was a big help with my TMIC purchase. I ordered the elbow and TB coupler from Hose Techniques. Fast shipping, nice product.

My STI TMIC didn't come with a Y-Pipe, so I ordered one of Ebay. It's surprisingly a very nice kit. It's not the cheapest one on Ebay, but the seller was able to answer my questions and their other products were all name brand products.

The seller name is boombop. Here's a link to the kit and a picture.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=350365014413



I do have one question. Will my breather hose fit on the STI TMIC? I have an 05 WRX.

Ok, so someone please help me out here. Installed an STi intercooler on my 2002 WRX. Obviously doesn't line up well. The TB coupler hose has slipped off a couple of times. Now by reading this thread I am left with the impression that all I need for a correct line up is extended piping. This doesnt seem to be right as the throttle body coupler is where the problem lies, I have the Spekter coupler or whatever it's called from advanced auto parts for like 8 bucks. It's long enough but it's stressed to the left (drivers side) I dont suppose STi brackets will help?

You need to extend out both 90 degree hose and TB hose in order to make them perfectly fit. WRX and STI brackets are identical IIRC.

Brackets are the same.

I have an 04 STi TMIC on my 02. Picked up a longer 90* elbow for the I/C to turbo connection and a longer I/C to throttle body coupler. Fits like a glove.

Can anyone confirm that the 06/07 splitter will work with an 04 wrx scoop? I'd prefer to keep the stock scoop if I upgrade to an STI tmic.

Thanks!

Can anyone confirm that this 90* elbow will be long enough to fit an 06+ Sti TMIC in an 02 WRX?

I'm running a PE1820 so the Sti elbow doesn't sit perfectly on the turbo by about an 1" or 1.5" i just didn't want to order something too short...

Seems a bit too short. Order longer hose then trim as needed.

Any suggestion besides stylin motors? They never delivered when I ordered from them so I had to get a refund...

I got mine from stylin. It was pretty expensive for a piece of hose. Samco is expensive but it looks nice

I bought Tial silicone hoses for my V7 STI TMIC. Very pricey and had to trim the elbow legs. Used T-bolt clamps and have run up to 26 psi without a worry. Spend a little more up front and never have to do it again.

one question? when you say the IC to turbo hose is 1" SHORT... is it short left-right from the lower turbo side of the hose or short up-down from the upper IC part?

Alrighty so I have a vf39 and STi TMIC in my 04 WRX. I should just need the longer TB coupler, correct?

Just to answer my above question, if you have a vf39 or vf43 and an STi TMIC, and you're installing BOTH into your WRX, you ONLY need a longer throttle body coupler (2.75" inner diameter, 3" long)

I bought one from here for super cheap and it's nice quality

http://www.siliconeintakes.com/

You'll probably have to trim the coupler a little bit to get the brackets on the intercooler to bolt up. Just a centimeter or so of trimming, but fit it with the full 3" long coupler first to see if it works as-is, every car is a little different.

One of the bigger issues I'm running into now is the AC line rubbing against the intercooler, I've wrapped it, bent it, etc and nothing helps. When they rub it'll feel like rod knock or something too, the whole car shakes like crazy. I just ordered the larger STi AC line to clear the intercooler a few days ago which should fix the problem ( part number # 73422FE031)

hope this helps anyone who stumbles on this!

I know this is an old thread, but did you get that AC line replaced? Did it fix the issue? Just did the STI tmic install and the damn rattling has got to stop.

One other note, I got an STI top mount and splitter from an 07 from a friend, and I'm cheap, so I decided not to buy the v.7 sti scoop/splitter combo. The 07 splitter actually fits great with a few cuts from some tin snips
