IPR TMIC Intercooler

Pix of IPR TMIC in 2011 wrx.
Installation took about 3 hr. used the Tomioka Racing Throttle Body Hose,
T-Bolt Hose Clamps and some longer bolts for the turbo. The IC fits very tight but for $435 i think its worth it.

Looks nice,

Any details on how much PSI this can hold or the before and after on hp/tq numbers? Noticeable difference before and after? And for that price it seems pretty nice.

It's not feasible to ask "how psi it can hold" nor can you expect an answer to before and after as every setup with net completely different results. Being noticeable depends on the setup and how you use it.

A TMIC is not a power mod, it's a support mod for your power mods.

I doubt a lot of TMICs could help create 400 whp unless you're using meth, E85, or CO2 sprayers on the TMIC.

I like how it uses the stock mounting locations for the turbo and BPV. A friend of mine has an 08' WRX with the Process West, and although it's big and shiny, the way the hoses route I dislike. It also shifts the BPV over about 2-3" making that plumb back for the BPV to the intake mani super stretched.

Sure, but for that much it won't exactly be ideal. You'll want to look into a FMIC.

Sorry for the the thread jack.

[edit] It is lying. I'm in VA.

Emphasis on "reply" and also an apology to brfatal, but VA is close enough

Why did it take 3 hours to install it?

^Are you saying it should have taken less time because it fit so well?

My Perrin TMIC is huge and it only took about 2 hours to install. Probably about 15 mins to take it off the STI TMIC and about 5 mins or less to put the gaskets and install the y-pipes from the old TMIC to the Perrin. So, 20 mins tops on removal and setting up the new TMIC. The rest of the time was bitching and cursing trying to get the larger TMIC back in there correctly. But, I got it in there finally. Man, I remember being so mad that its a lot harder to get on then it was to get off. But, the new WRX TMICs look a lot easier to install to me.
