Throttle Body Coolant Bypass
2010 Legacy GT

Socket 12mm
Flat Head Screwdriver

-Remove the engine cover.

-Remove 12mm bolt and loosen worm clamp.

-Remove 12mm bolt and loosen worm clamp.

-I find it easier to fully remove the right-side intercooler bracket.

-Remove the TMIC.

-Mark the top of the throttle body to intercooler hose so you know which way it goes back on when you are done (I just used a black marker). Also loosen the worm clamp and remove the hose.

-Completely remove the hose in red and remove the left side of the hose connected to the throttle body (yellow). You will lose a small amount of coolant.

-For this part you can either cut the factory hose or purchase another hose to use. I chose to cut the factory hose.

-Connect the cut end of the hose to the area where the previous hose was that we removed earlier.

-That’s it, you can now put back the TMIC reverse of the above process. It may be a slight pain but it can be done, just take your time. Start your car and check for leaks, you will lose a small amount of coolant from the above process but not much.
