Impreza GC8 GC8 ej20g hood scoop splitter

Hey guys. I just bought a spare ej20g that came with the turbo chimney

So now i'm looking for the splitter that will funnel the air down the chimney and onto the stock angled intercooler.

Also... I'm looking to upgrade the intercooler. What kinds can we get to fit?

If you go to a FMIC, you solve both problems.

For me, I got the slanty IC splitter with my '95 clip and I am planning on adapting it to work with the RS hood scoop. Not sure how succesful I will be, but that is the plan.

As far as slanty IC upgrades, AVO and MRT make replacements. But as seen in another recent post, the upgraded ICs may cause interference problems with the clutch slave cylinder.

ahh yeah you're right that would be an issue.

Good call on the Front mount but how is the lag with it on the stock turbo?

And, where other than ebay can i get one cheap. I'm thinking of using a used evo or srt core, but i'd need the other pipes.

with the stock turbo you will not need anything more than the stock IC...

I still have the stock IC with a super 16g variant of the td05 and have no issues other than amzingly fast spool up.

^^^Also got the splitter with my clip (and I have the proper hood)

The standard IC, IMHO is only adequate when the matching splitter and scoop are used. If that's not 100% on, I think you start to drop IC efficiently rather quickly.

Jaxx is right, there is only slight improvement between the two cores (std vs. STi). The only benefit comes from the IC feed pipe. The STi variant is much better and unfortunately can not be used on the standard IC. AVO makes an alloy feed pipe that fits the standard IC. This is the route I am going. On top of having less restriction, the plastic feed pipe is known to split and fail over time.

There is a good Autospeed article that compares all these ICs.

sorry - by stock I meant ver2. It has two pipes off the back in comparison to the wrx only having one.

On a side note - I have a wrx one for sale if anyone needs one...

Could you get me a link to where I can get the AVO feed pipe.

Sure, check their IC catalog;

http://www.avoturboworld.com/news/ic_catalog.pdf

The quote I got was $350AU which is ~$260US shipped. I haven't ordered yet, so perhaps we could bundle an order and save a bit on shipping? Just a thought.

To make it more complicated, I was looking on ebay and found a FMIC kit for $600 shipped from UK. That damn feed pipe is almost 1/2 way there and there would be no need to worry about fitting the correct IC splitter. The only other catch is that to use the FMIC, you need a filter kit that removes the stock airbox so figure at least another $150 on top of that, plus a lot of futzing around with the bumper to mount the FMIC.

I just installed a FMIC last week, and I now have the exact splitter you need sitting in my trunk. It wasn't a direct bolt-on to my RS hood, but I got it to fit perfectly by just using some self-tapping screws and a zip tie. PM me if you're interested.
