GrimmSpeed Front Mount Intercooler Kit Silver Core w/ Black Piping Subaru 2008-2014 WRX
GrimmSpeed intercoolers have set the gold standard of how a high-performance heat exchanger should be crafted. These intercoolers have always maintained the delicate balance of low-pressure drop and high-temperature rejection, which is vital to safety and performance for your turbocharged Subaru engine.
The core is the most essential aspect of the intercooler. The engineers at GrimmSpeed were able to channel over a decade of intercooler production knowledge into creating a custom design from the ground up with the company's tested internal and external specifications to maximize the performance and deliver the best cooling option on the market. The beautiful cast-aluminum end tanks were carefully designed alongside the core for the most efficient and optimal flow characteristics for all driving situations.
GrimmSpeed designed robust steel mounting brackets that will keep the unit from shifting around even during hard track driving. Unlike other kits, their front mount intercoolers retain a huge core, but do not require cutting portions of your bumper cover or light housings, and don’t require replacing or relocating components such as the washer tank or coolant reservoir for the piping to fit.
GrimmSpeed kits are comprised of thick aluminum tubing, precisely machine-bent with large radius bends for maximum flow and perfect fitment every time. The pipes are bead rolled at each end to lock together with the included 5-ply silicone couplers, so you don’t have to worry about blow-offs under high boost.
As with most FMIC kits, the GrimmSpeed Front Mount Intercooler requires the removal of your factory bumper beam to fit its massive core. The factory bumper beam aids in chassis rigidity and adds reinforcement to your factory bumper cover. To help keep chassis deflection at bay and to keep any large dents out of your front fascia, they’re offering the GrimmSpeed Bumper Bar as an optional add-on. The bumper bar is constructed of thick mild steel, welded to robust mounting plates that are machined for weight savings. Each bar includes a welded-in tow hook receiver so you can continue to use your GrimmSpeed License Plate Relocation Kit. The entire bumper bar is covered in a durable black powder-coat for good looks and longevity!
