Go a new TMIC
Got a new huge X02 top mount intercooler installed this morning. Couple of pics: sorry it they're a bit crappy.



Side by Side comparison:

Wow, thatsa huge difference. How was the install/fitment? Any issues?

Yeah getting the throttle body coupler to line up was the hardest. It's still off and you can see the silicon coupler is bent. I have to try again tomorrow with some jiggling and fighting to see if I can get a better fit. I ran it under high boost and it held no problem, but I'm still not satisfied. The toughest part is getting it in because of its size.

Thats cool. So other than just fighting it a bit, its a good product? Im trying to set up a plan for purchasing parts and what not when I return and a TMIC is about number 4 on my list. Thanks in advance.

It seems like a good one. I bought it from someone who received it in a trade but already has a Perrin TMIC. So he sold me this one for 300. The thing is huge and came with everything for the install. I need to take it back off tomorrow and try and get a better connection.

Yea the x02 racing tmic is big. I had a few issues connecting the y-pipe to the turbo, but after playing with it for a while it got on just fine. I also had issues with the i/c rubbing against my ac line, but had just put a piece of rubber zip tied to the ac line on.

^^^dont you have a front mount? or is that avatar not your car?

wrxman420 03-16-2008 02:01 PM

No, Unfortunatly thats not my car in the avatar, although that is what i would like it to look like in the end (real pics are in my profile). The fmic along with other mods got put on hold because i thought my $ would be better spent on my transmission for now.
