    bugeye intercooler upgrade?

    I have an 2002 wrx and finishing up a stage 1 build and want to put a bigger intercooler on. Can a sti intercooler directly bolt on or do I need to get an aftermarket one? Looking for suggestions...

    Yes, it will bolt on. However you will require a y-pipe and a larger TB coupler to fit the drive-by-cable TB of the EJ205.

    FYR, the STi TMIC isn't a tremendous improvement over the stock EJ205 intercooler. Furthemore, you will need a larger splitter to take advantage of the larger surface area of the STi TMIC.

    I have an STI intercooler to sell you, if interested. Zach is very familiar with it.
