I was talking about the turbo inlet hose, not the intercooler hose. Already did those. Thanks

It is easier to remove if you use a hack saw to chop off two nipples off of OEM hose. Also, spray small amount of WD40 on new hose to make install easier.

It can be easily done in 1 hour.

Not really a good idea. A little bit of rubbing alcohol works great - it makes things nice & slippery but doesn't leave any residue.

I have a STI tmic, and mine came wit the stock y-pipe, and hose that connects to the turbo. I bought the STI gasket. (that triangular rubber thing)

now my question is, do i have to wait to buy a STI air splitter? or can i put it on, and then order 1 and put that on later?

Also i hear about people having to bend their AC lines? if i have to do this...fine, but someone please explain the easiest way to do it without crazy tools.

I ran mine without the STI splitter for a couple of months without any problem, YMMV. The STI splitter caused underhood temperatures to drop noticeably, though

A/C lines are clear on my car, but I had to bend the pipe that connects the BOV back to the intake.

Whoa, just saw this. Thanks dude. I try to keep it clean all the time. Every time I wash my car, I'll take the wetter of the towels and wipe everything down. It keeps everything clean pretty well. Simple maintenance.

alright, i know everyone has been through this...but i still stand confused. I tried putting this on with what you see in the picture, but the hose is to short for my td04 turbo. Anyway heres a list of what i got. Tell me what i'm going to need to make this work! I am getting frustrated trying to make this work.

Going onto a 07 WRX

- Air Splitter for STI
- Triangle Rubber Gasket

Also, with the mounting brackets. I didnt really check to much b/c i was trying to get the hose that came with the IC to fit all the way around the turbo. thanks for the help guys, i know its a bunch of repeating but i read the whole thread and was just confused.

I am a more confused now after reading through this entire thread. I have a 06 wrx with a 05 sti tmic that came with the sti y pipe. I am putting this in with a FP18g turbo and was wondering what all I need to install the intercooler. Could I just get the Samco STI intercooler hose Kit or do I even need anything at all? Thanks

Just to get a clarified answer here before I order stuff.

I have a 2004 WRX and a 2007 STi intercooler with the full metal y-pipe.

Will the Samco hose kit seen here allow me to install it cleanly and correctly? The elbow on it looks longer than stock which is what sounds like is needed.

Also, to have it line up with a USDM 04/05 STi scoop/splitter will I use the WRX or STi TMIC mounting brackets (I have both)?

What you should need is the USDM WRX STi kit from here:

I know that one is cheaper, but I have a friend who gets REALLY good deals on Samco. Anyone know if the Samco one will work?

^I used the TCS209 kit to install an 04 STi intercooler on my 05 WRX. It worked perfectly. The elbow was actually slightly longer than it needed to be.

Hey if you want to pay for the name it is your money. Stylin's hoses have more reinforcement and the wall thickness of the hoses are thicker by about 3/32 of an inch. Almost double. This makes the hoses much stronger.

Just the answer I was looking for.

Like I said, I can get a good deal on Samco stuff. They will end up pretty much the same price.

I just ordered my parts from Stylinmotors.com, and the splitter from Rallispec.com.

Hopefully I can get them soon, and get the intercooler installed quick!

it would be pretty difficult to do (but probably doable) and at a minimum you would still need the longer STi seal- the oe splitter/seal is designed to perfectly match (fit into) the oe sized intercooler, w/ the larger STi ic the oe seal/splitter is simply too small and a large % of the ic won't be getting the proper air flow.

it's been demonstrated that a correct seal is absolutely essential for peak intercooler performance, you can have a high dollar, fancy intercooler if it isn't sealed correctly it isn't going to perform worth a damn

Bigsky is right. I have the same setup (04 WRX w/STi TMIC) and with my stock splitter/shroud, the seal and coverage is far less than what it could be. It will work as a temp solution, but the best route to go will be an STi scoop/splitter/shroud. Should be a direct and perfect fit, that's what I'll be going with.

Strangely enough, I just installed my STi TMIC on my 02 and didn't have to extend the hose going to the compressor outlet... both brackets lined up correctly, the tb to IC outlet lined up, it sits in the car square and lined up.... everything lined up fine.. (I'm running a vf39)
