Alright so here's my hopefully easy to answer, but potentially pretty newb-ish question.
2009 WRX, TP Stage 2, with all the supporting mods - Installed by the previous owner, but I'm still trying to go back over everything and make sure its all good to go-
1. Does anybody recognize the top mount that is being used currently? I haven't been able to identify it, nor has anybody else. No identifying factors - which leads me to believe that it is either an ebay knock-off, or worse yet, a knock-off of a knock-off
I never really thought it may be a problem until recently when I started looking closer at the fitment - Had to remove my SPT strut brace given that it rubbed pretty good on the back of the intercooler and caused a pretty nice rattle at idle. That's neither here nor there as I think I'll just mill off an eighth of an inch or so and re-install later. Obviously the ducting work from the hood doesn't fit, which you can see on the intercooler itself (Little clean lines near the left and right sides from where the ducting rubs).
So the moral of the story as I read it? Potentially sketchy top mount that isn't being as efficient as possible and is interfering with other parts. Huh.
2. Looks like a Turbosmart Recirculating BOV Kompact Plumb Back, which I found on rallysportdirect. Seems to be a pretty good product and gets great reviews, but I just wanted to get some other opinions, really just in general. Are there better things out there? Ideas? Criticisms?
3. The point of this post is that if this intercooler set up is trash, which it very well might be, then I think I'll shell out for the Process West TMIC, assuming it will work with my current set up. Again, ideas? Thoughts?
Just want to make sure that my car is as healthy as possible.
