CNT Subaru Top Mount Intercooler for 05-09 LGT / 08-14 WRX / 09-13 Forester XTSKU INT-102
I’ve worked on cars for nearly 20 years so I consider myself a pretty experienced amateur mechanic. I could NOT get this TMIC to line up on my 2005 LGT. I tried everything I could think of and nothing worked. After I failed I enlisted the help of a certified Subaru Mechanic. Same result. He also could not get the TMIC inlet flange holes to line up with the cold side turbo outlet housing. And yes the Instructions were followed to the T. Would be interested in returning if at all possible.
fitment was good. no problems installing. quality product great price.
It's a great IC. Works well, looks nice. The fitment is a bit of a challenge. It will fit but you gotta push the hell out of it. It's so big you can't run a strut bar with it either so keep that in mind. All in all worth it.
Good fitment, works great, no rubbing and no turbo re-clocking (approx. 3/4" clearance from clutch slave cylinder). Little bit of push to fit turbo bolts, adjust right bracket to avoid rubbing with BPV. Check that CCV hose clamp doesn't pinch BPV vent hose underneath. Slightly higher on turbo side. Installed on 2014 WRX Sedan. Delivery was fast.
