How many times have you lost a wrench or socket in your engine bay? Yeah, that's what I thought, too many to count. Finally after all of these years of losing tools, GrimmSpeed has come to the rescue. Introducing our Subaru Radiator Shroud w/ Integrated Tool Tray. Another common issue that we are fixing is that in stock form, because of the way the front of the Subaru is designed, there is incoming air that doesn't actually pass through the radiator because of some large gaps in sealing at the top. Our shroud forces this air back through the radiator which in turn keeps the radiator cooler. Thirdly, we snuck in yet another cool little feature that you won't find on other radiator shrouds; we have incorporated the radiator stays into our shroud. Yep, you can now ditch those OEM stays and transition over to our super clean approach to using the shroud as the radiator stay. Wrap all of this up in some Heavy Duty DuPont™ Wrinkle Powder Coat and you have yourself a sexy little innovative package.
We designed the GrimmSpeed Radiator Shroud using our in-house FARO Arm along with the latest and greatest Solidworks CAD software. This assures that we can offer you the most precise and best fitting Radiator Shroud on the market.
Our Radiator Shroud has been made with beefy local raw materials. The base of the product starts out as a 6061 sheet of Aluminum. We then invested a large amount of capital to create production level tooling and molds to allow the Tool Tray to be formed without having to rivet or weld. This gives it a much cleaner and more finished look. Next we turned to DuPont for their heavy duty Black, Red, and Silver Wrinkle Powder Coat. This gives the Radiator Shroud a very tough finish that will last for years. Finally we laid down some GrimmSpeed ink to finish off the whole design.
"This is another great example of not green lighting a project until our Engineering Team can find a way to innovate. The Shroud project was in our project queue for over a year before I gave the go ahead...why?...because we needed to find a way to bring new solutions to our customers instead of just releasing a product for the sake of just releasing a product" - Justin Grimm

The main reason I was looking to purchase a radiator shroud was just to clean up the engine bay a little bit. When I saw Grimmspeed was making one with an integrated tool tray, I thought all the better and waited for them to come out with one for my year WRX (2010). I am very glad I waited, their shroud came out awesome. The whole shroud itself is like a tool shelf already with the way it mounts to the grill and radiator and having the extra tool tray is great. I had forgotten that this tray actually acts as the radiator stays which was also a nice feature. I'm not sure that i believe it really has enough of an impact on cooling that it's worth mentioning as a selling point, but fitment was awesome and install was super easy, another great GS product.
