 · Joined Feb 7, 2015. ·. 1,208 Posts. #4 · Mar 1, 2018. Only show this user. the OEM STi intercooler is one of the best TMIC you can have. I am going to run mine with an EFR 7163 and plenty have ran it with GT30r's and above with little issue. The number 1 thing with these cars is the tune.

Bulletproof TMIC install - Page 2 - NASIOC

 · When you work on the engine you loosen these hoses because you move them. Thus, because installing the BP Mod requires removing the TMIC, the one inaccessible hose is disturbed and should be clamped. Even if you didn't do it then, it is still a good idea to clamp the numerous hoses attached to your intake manifold.

Bulletproof Water Pump, is it worth the $350 Price tag ...

 · My water pump went out and I am debating in installing a $350 Bulletproof water pump (1 year warranty) or an O'Reilly lifetime warranty water pump. I also would like to know who has a Bulletproof water pump with 250,000 to 300,000 in it. Is the Bulletproof really worth the $350 price tag over a $120 O'Reilly water pump.

High Compression EJ257 Build for Street Mod ... - IW STi …

 · Staying stock location and TMIC is the easiest/cheapest way to do it. Some rotated kits work with the TMIC though. I think the EFR7163 stock location would be a great turbo for autox if you have bigger lots or plan on doing any road racing, but the 6758 …

2008 WRX - how much power can it handle/produce? - …

 · At the moment I am running the stock TMIC, injectors, pump, intake, filter and CBE. Gutted stock DP, STi 2nd . Next mod is to PnP some stock exhaust manifolds and see what that brings. Those having a hard time finding a good used VF-52 or balk at paying $1,000 for a new one could consider this option. $725 plus a dead VF-40 is a steal, IMO.

Bulletproof Mod for TMIC, why is it bad? - NASIOC

 · I found the end tanks of my TMIC starting to separate as soon as I went stage 2. It is a hit or miss for the TMIC at the stage 2 boost levels. I have the BP mod on my tmic, and it is holding those end tanks in just fine and dandy. If you don't got the funds for an upgraded TMIC, the bp is thee way to go.

bulletproof daily driver - Subaru Outback Forums

 · I'm planning to do the bulletproof TMIC mod myself- I scored a near-new stock one from an LGT that had 800 miles on it. Everything I've read about the "bulletproof" mod indicates that the key is to start with one that has never leaked- once the seal is gone it will never be the same. I converted to LGT brakes with the wilwood kit over top.

Why did you buy a WRX instead of STi when you are... - …

 · Nothing is bulletproof, but the STI tranny of any year is far superior to the WRX tranny of all years. On the intercooler, the whole point of the thread was to say "Why mod a WRX to be like an STI?" So there's a swap right there to make the car more like an STI. And then you should get a tune for it. And so the mod saga begins...

('09-'13) - Vf52 swap...steel oil line? - Subaru Forester

 · The bulletproof mod keeps the end tanks of the stock TMIC together at stage 2 vf52 boost levels, they have been known to separate. I would do this for reliability. The fuel pump is for headroom, not necessary, but beefs up the fuel system. The ebcs is not for power but drivability.

 · FYI, if you pick up an 05 STI ecu, VF39 turbo and STI tmic/bov, they bolt directly on, and give you 300hp/300ft/lbs just like the STI. And if you shop wisely, you can do it for under a grand. Oh and since you have better gearing than the STI, you will out run them in a straight line.

 · We also found that my bypass valve was leaking by reviewing the datalogs and that helped me fix my chief boost leak then he also told me about the bullet proof TMIC mod and that has, is and will prevent boost leaks on my lovely plastic intercooler. But now the car is completely sorted powertrain-wise save some manner of catch-can/oil air separator.
