What is the hot inter-cooler these days
I blew one of the tanks off my stocker i really thought i wanted the process west but it seems no one is selling them anymore.

I saw the spearco one but it seems the turbo would heat up the intercooler and possibly make an inter heater. Also it doesn't seem to be ducted either. Anyone have any experience/opinions with it?

i guess... back to the ole sturdy perrin/avo combo...

part of me would like to go front mount but it seems the more i mod my car the more issues i have with it so i'm hesitant to give myself that many places for boost leaks to occur and then have to deal with tuning for the the new intake.

Check for sigmafour's build thread. He successfully made a Spearco work including fabbing the splitter to the hood. Not sure the status on the PW TMIC. I know they were considering modifying the fitment and haven't heard an update but guess that's why they aren't continuing to add stock to dealers. They are definitely still producing Subaru parts for other platforms. Perhaps email them? I'm really pleased with my PW :D

If you choose something else I'd go AVO vs. Perrin due to the fitment issues with the Perrin.

I just bought a PW TMIC on eBay not too long ago. No fitment problems.

I had my Perrin fitting flawlessly before the PW, but it required a turbo spacer and a tranny mount.
