Perrin TMIC, 06 wrx
Hey guys, I have a 06 wrx and was thinking about getting this perrin top mount

[url=]Subaru WRX/STI Perrin Top Mount Intercooler[/url]

Is that a good deal and what kind of power gain am I going to get from that?

My current mods:
cobb AP stage 2 map
perrin lightweight crank pulley
perrin intercooler hose kit

and as far as a tune and supporting mods what would I need?
is it worth getting this without getting a turbo upgrade as well?

Should have a y-pipe with it, looks like it doesn't.

It's worth getting if you plan on upgrading your turbo later. It won't do anything without a tune but it won't hurt either. Might make a slight difference on a really hot day.

Brand New, It doesn't come with a Y-pipe. It re-uses the STI Y pipe or if your using a wrx. You need a STI style Y pipe to make it work. I re-used my Y pipe and gaskets. When I upgraded mine.

You won't really see a gain, unless you get tuned for it. If your running some sort of tune and its really cold out. You'll like pop a CEL like I did.

So of I get a pro tune what kind of gains would i be looking at?

turmic 04-27-2010 10:06 PM

Hard to say. I did a lot more than just add the TMIC and I went from 255 whp and 280 wtq to 266/315. But, my second tune was also a lot more aggressive.

mosc 04-27-2010 10:24 PM

TD04 is tiny and that's a huge TMIC. I'd say 5hp max, if you get tuned on a really hot day. On a decent sized turbo though, it can make a huge difference.

Don't be sad though - when it finally comes time to upgrade the turbo, that'll be one less thing you'll have to worry about. That's a pretty good deal for a top quality part. If, for any reason, you don't end up using it to its full potential, you can just add it to your mod list as another bling item.

Basically I have 1k to spend on my car and I just want to get my car faster. gotten used to my stage 2. Should i just get this and save for rest of upgrade or....

blk05WRX 04-28-2010 10:23 PM

A pro-tune will get you more hp than that. I've gotten used to Stage 2 also and I'm going to start collecting parts for a turbo upgrade.

man show 04-29-2010 08:36 AM

Yeah, I'm definitely used to my Stage 2 setup as well. I'm in a tough spot though because I still owe ~9k on my car and I'd really like to get it completely paid off before I start investing more in it. Plus I have to pay for my own tuition too now which is a killer. I have a feeling I'll probably end up keeping my car this way for a while until school is finished in a couple years and by then the car will probably have tons of miles on it and I'll be ready to start fresh - with an STi possibly!? I can only hope :)

That is what I plan on doing after college man show. get a Sti.

I was looking into a little more and I could get a STi intercooler and vf39 and just run the vf39 map from cobb.
Seems like this could save me a lot of money. Has anyone done this?
Would I need to get new injectors and pump if i did this?
and if anyone has a vf39 or Sti intercooler let me know:)

02WRXbugeye 04-29-2010 04:43 PM

and how much are the injectors and pump?

02WRXbugeye 04-30-2010 07:37 PM

hey guys, no help?

I have another question now. Would a 2008 STI intercooler work with the vf39 map you can download from cobb? because it is bigger than the older sti intercoolers.

and I still am wondering about all the other questions I asked.

turmic 04-30-2010 09:04 PM

The map would be configured to work with that model year's STI intercooler. So, the short of it is no. It wouldn't be quite correct.

That'll have your fuel pump and injectors. Do some of your own searching please.

blk05WRX 05-01-2010 07:37 AM

If you've got an 06 your stock injectors will work with vf39. You just need the turbo, intercooler, fuel pump and a custom tune.
