The factory intercooler setup is quite inefficient and does not allow your engine to produce anywhere near its full potential.
The CNT Top Mount Intercooler has less than a psi of back pressure, unleashing horsepower and response and reducing the load on the turbocharger. The air going into your engine is also cooler, thanks to the free-flow bar and plate design of the much larger intercooler core.
Aluminum Bar & Plate core

Looks like a nice product. Will NOT bolt onto my 2005 LGT

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.

Fitment was poor but not impossible

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 product and value

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.
