The GrimmSpeed TMIC was the perfect part I needed! I was finally able to reach the HP goals I was aiming for. Went from 285whp to 334whp with only e85 and this intercooler! Needless to say it was a huge difference. The stock intercooler was tiny and got heat-soaked almost instantly. After the GrimmSpeed TMIC was installed, the car runs smooth through even the most intensive driving! Easy fit in the engine bay and it makes it look great! If you are looking to take your car to the next level then get this intercooler!

It's an easy product to install. Mine did not come with installation instructions but i used Youtube from various Subaru makes to finish my installation. It's a direct bolt on but it does take some effort to put everything together, such as the silicone connects for the turbo infeed to the TMIC and from the TMIC to the throttle body. Have patient and have fun putting them on is the key. The other was the TMIC mounting brackets, I had to Youtube which direction they go on otherwise it's a direct fit with new bolts.
The TMIC looks great in my 05 OBXT, I had to modified my engine cover but it's only because I like the cover over the ugly engine bay without the cover.
I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to replace OEM TMIC.
