    so I brought this 06 sti tmic and the guy said hes keeping the y pipe and everything for his new iC. So I only get the core. Can I reuse the metal cast iron part from my 06 wrx and just order the silicon y-pipe that join the cast iron part (90 degree albow connected to the intercooler to the y -pipe)? What else do I need? Please advice.

    Hi,

    I understand I can get the silicone y pipe, what about the matel piece the connect the intercooler to the y pipe? Do I reuse the one on my 06? So Intercooler --> Metal piece --> y pipe. Thanks.

    i got around to doing this and thought i'd post a little write up on the splitter differences.

    this first pic shows the STi tmic (duh):


    once i removed the wrx hoodscoop splitter/bellow, i placed it on top of the STi tmic so you can see how much smaller it is, and how much of the STi tmic is not being utilized due to the smaller wrx splitter/bellow:


    here is the STi hoodscoop splitter/bellow resting on top, as you can see, a perfect seal:


    now here are the two splitters side by side; STi on the left, wrx on the right. you notice that the STi one has a piece in the middle to deflect air to the lower part of the tmic:





    install was a breeze, simply remove the 7 (seven) 8mm bolts, and the one plastic clip and gently pop the splitter piece off. align your new one to the holes, insert the two little tabs at the bottom and install the bolts, then plastic clip. it took me about 10 minutes.
