STI top mount installed

I installed a 07 STI topmount on my 07 TR. I am running stg 2 and not having any cel or anything but last night I went to the track and out of the hole the car seemed to bogg down on launch at 4grand. I always launch at the sme rpm and this bogg didnt exist B4. Is this normal after changing tmic?

There's not much, if any difference in size of the 2 top mounts. The intercooler is not your problem.

My turbo's fixed and a lot better =)

Ya, definetly not from the I/C. Are you running a tuned stage two or flashed base stage two? That could be your problem there, track condition pending.

The 06/07 has a smaller intercooler than the 02-05 and the STi intercooler is substantially bigger than the 02-05 WRX intercooler. The difference is about double the surface area between the two. The STi intercooler is not huge, but it's a lot bigger than the stock 07 cooler.

I agree that the intercooler is not your problem, but the mod will serve you well in the future if you intend to upgrade to a slightly larger turbo (like a VF39). If you intend to get a much larger turbo however, the STi mount isn't big enough.
