Default Treadstone STi Intercooler

Recently I purchased the Treadstone intercooler and mounting plate. I was originally going to go custom Garret core which was 24" x 12" x 4.5". I knew right off the bat that I would need to get end tanks made for the Garret core which would cost me some extra money. Also the Garret core was way too tall to even try to fit behind my bumper, I was figuring I was going to have to buy a new bumper such as a JUN replica with a huge opening for it.

My friend purchased a Treadstone core the same size as the Garret core but for a lot cheaper. I had seen both in person and the only way I could tell them apart was by the Treadstone logo on the top of the core. I went on the Treadstone’s website and inquired about the intercooler core and they had recommended me the newest addition to their inventory. Their new intercooler was 28" x 10.5" x 4.5". Similar to the size of the Perrin intercooler, which I had previously, but the Treadstone intercooler was a lot thicker.

The intercooler had end tanks already welded on and also came with a mounting bracket to replace the bumper beam.

NEW Intercooler arives


This think is as thick as my droidd!!!!!!

obviously for an intercooler this huge, I was going to have to do some trimming



Had to cut away the tabs on both left and right hand side of the car



fit a little bit better but needed a little more trimming

had to do a little more trimming, then also had to bang the seam of the rad support down to make sure it wasnt rubbing on the back on the intercooler.



nice grill





Fitment was great after tweaking a few things. This is the biggest bolt on intercooler money can buy you at the moment. I plan on putting down big numbers so I needed to find something to meat my needs. not only that but I love the way it smiles back at me

You can follow my teardown and build up thread for more updates soon to come.
