The direct fit Subaru WRX performance charge air cooler boasts a 70% larger core that helps reduce intake manifold temperatures up to 30 °F (16.7 °C). Optimized end tanks improve air flow through the core. This performance intercooler showed an increase of up to 16 HP (12 kW) and 15 lb-ft (20 N-m) of torque compared to OE during back to back dyno comparisons in a wind tunnel which generates air velocity that matches vehicle speed. During testing the heat saturation point increased from 4 dyno pulls to 6 dyno pulls.
This direct fit performance intercooler installs in 1 hour and reuses the stock bolts, hoses, and clamps. Some modification to the OE engine cover required.
