Default AVO TMIC and TB-IC hose 2012 wrx review

So I installed my AVO TMIC and AVO tb hose/coupler along with it on my 2012 WRX.

AVO intercooler fits great with patience and taking your time to prep everything. One thing that I noticed is the bottom would in fact bump into brake solenoid and cause it to rub fins on the intercooler. So with that said my fix to that was a small piece of really dense foam I found just laying on top of toolbox and cut a small piece to just cover Brake solenoid and I wrapped it in electrical tape to hold in place and also handle heat that may be in the area... Yes kinda ghetto but it did the job and is gonna save any minimal rubbing caused by sharp solenoid edges...

TB hose to intercooler also made by AVO was the hardest part being I checked and check to make sure I had angle right before reassembling everything, once in place it fit great along w/ a little bling factor.

So as said above the AVO tmic and hose worked great and fit great, just have to take your time and double check everything before tightening or assembly.

Install is probably 4/10 10 being the hardest. Depends on your mechanical background and how patient you can be

Very happy overall and considering I picked this up locally for $250

wow, you payed a good price for the tmic. i had the same issue with my perrin tmic. i ground down the side of the slave cylinder banjo bolt a little. now it doesnt touch anymore underneath.the other option is to reclock the turbo housing. on my old td04 i did that. my vf52 now is a little harder to reclock. i left it be.perrin also sent me a spacer for the turbo flange. i didnt like how high that made my tmic against the hood. i removed that.
