  1. Engine Modifications
    Hi. I have a 2017 WRX and I am looking at installing an upgraded intercooler. Which are the best options and why? What kind of HP could I expect? I am currently stage 2. And I am looking what to do next to get some more power and/or torque. Or is there something I should do first or...

    So this weekend I did the vf52 swap. I also installed Cobb turbo inlet, Cobb sf intake, and Rev9 catless DP. I’m going to run the TP 2.52 tune. The problem is, I think the vf52 that I bought (rev9) sits lower somehow in the engine bay, and the AVO top mount I’m trying to install is significantly...

    Kind of a horror story here: So I purchased my very first - Stock, 2004 WRX, 72K - one week ago from a dealer. This week I drove it on a 3 hr trip to visit family. While on the highway, I noticed the turbo was kicking in-and-out, almost unnoticeable. After a bit the turbo stopped engaging and...

    So I have a 2005 WRX and I noticed oily residue coming from the Y shaped hard plastic tube that runs from the turbo to the intercooler. The plastic tube has a crack in it so I ordered a new one. I have not had the part taken off but is it common for oily residue to be in this area? I am just...

    Has anyone installed air temperature gauges at the inlet and outlet of their intercoolers? I have thought about doing thing, but not even sure if it's possible. I've only found temperature gauges that max at 150F. If you have, any guidance?

    The tmic is horridly vulnerable to bent fins due to rocks, bugs, debris entering the hood scoop. Solution is to block the debris with a screen. I've seen this done 2 ways. 1. lay a screen over the intercooler. Not very effective imo because if the screen gets bent, the intercooler fins, in...
