sti intercooler help!
hey I'm putting on my sti intercooler on my 06 wrx, but i need help! the red silicone bit at the end of the y pipe does not seem long enough to cover the whole end of the turbo! I can get everything lined up, but it just barely covers it and then when i try to get it in further it goes, not totally covering it, but then everything else is not lined up correctly and it is still not totally over it! haha i need some helpful tips or comments! Thanks!!

It's not direct fit. You need longer hoses.

Research FTW. ;)

The only thing I needed for MY07 was the elbow piece. I had to cut it to size since it was too long. I purchased mine from Vibrant because they are located in DE so 1-day shipping to PA. But any decent 4-ply should work.
