You can, and you probably won't see much of a difference in the intercooler's cooling efficiency. The thermal dispersant, on the other hand, will greatly increase the cooling abilities of the intercooler.

Check out the thread Justin did a while back:

Try this price for the intercooler much cheaper then any where else and you can still get the flat black one. $1,199.99

I like finding the lowest price out there. Plus car parts are way marked up anyways.

Thanks a lot for lookin out for me! Ok so I am set on the greddy se catback and I am wondering how much the downpipe and headers will have an effect on sound. This is my first turbo car but back on my rsx I had a greddy evo 2 exhaust and when I added the vibrant race headers it made it noticebly louder which was good. Greddy tends to be real reserved in sound but I am wondering/hoping that it may make it a little more signifacant sounding than the catback alone.

The DP will make the car slightly louder. Depending on what headers you go with you will lose the subaru rumble/stumble.

I have an 09 as well. If this is you DD and you get snow in the winter plan on the getting tires or a winter wheel/tire set up.

For the price and ease of changing for the season I went with a $99 wheel from TireRack and had them mount Dunlop Winter Sport 3D's on them. They look really good on the car and you will be unstoppable in the snow (as long as its not as deep as your bumper!). The car is a BLAST in the snow!! (PS I couldn't even get out of my drive with the stock tires)

If you plan on modding at all get a wideband 02 and a boost guage. I know this is a lot of cost but it will give you peice of mind. Couple this with a laptop and Tactrix and you can look at everthing your tuner would see at any time. You can run pulls any time and verify your hitting your AFR and boost targets throughout your RPM range.

A word of advice--if you get a WB02 install it at the same time as your DP. THis will save you $$. I spent $250 to have the bung for the WB02 installed on my factory DP. It was worth it though, looks like its factory!

Depending on your tuner you will need the 255lph pump.

Keep us posted.

Holy hell $250 for a bung? I guess buying the cobb is a cheaper choice if it really costs that much to install.

Umm ya!! $5 for bung, $5 for welding it on! If I didn't know the welded then it would have been like $25 for 1/4 hour there labor cost. $250 wow! Something tells me he paid them 4-5 hours labor to take it off and intall it.

AEM just released this:AEM No-Weld O2 Sensor Mount 2.75-3 inch exhaust
Could be done as a DIY if you dont have the DP installed yet (or even if you dont mind taking it back off). Just another thought.

On the stock DP to boot.... Not worth it IMO... Aftermarket DP sure, but there's not much need for a wideband on an xpt tune on a stock dp.

Yes, I paid to have the DP removed, heat sheild cut nicely, and the bung welded in about 6 inches from the turbo. There isn't enough room to install the WB02 bung without taking it off. No jack legging here! It was done right. Like I said it looks factory.

I agree I should have gotten a DP, but I wasn't ready at the time. I will do headers, DP, UP, and CBE when that happens. I will run a catted DP so it will be twice as much.

There is plenty of need for a WBO2 on my set up. I don't have an OTS tune as I have a K&N Typhoon. We had to do alot of tweaking on his AEM OTS map to get the AFR right. Also if you plan on tweaking anything at all yourself you better have a WBO2!

Remote tuning is nice for me since I am a long way from a good tuner. Everything you need is at your finger tips with a WBO2, Tactrix, and RR or the likes.

IMHO if you plan to mod at all the WBO2 and boost guage should be your FIRST investment.

Happy modding!

Alright well now my big thing right now is finding a good tuner. I am sure you guys are familiar but I have been talkin to Big Al to see when he would be in Columbus next and that way I could get stuuff all done around that time. Right now I am lookin at slow motion motorsports doing the work because they do a lot of subaru's along with all the honda's that get pumped through there. If anyone knows of a subaru specialist shop around columbus OH let me know!
Also in regards to the FMIC has anyone been still running into fitment problems? I knew it used to be a problem but I wasnt sure if they had adressed that yet
