January 28th, 2016 by Ernest Lo


The Torque Solution STI Top Mount Intercooler is constructed using high quality bar and plate intercooler cores which provide a massive increase in cooling area. The split back tank intercooler design provides an increase in cooling efficiency and power over the standard single plenum design as per factory. To ensure a perfect fit the intercooler brackets have also been CNC machined. Utilizes the factory BOV flange to use the stock BOV or can be used with our Blow Off Valve Flange Adapters (sold separately) we have available for Greddy, HKS, or Tial BOV’s. This intercooler is ideal for power levels up to 550whp. TMIC’s has proven to constantly offer less than 1 psi of pressure drop which leads to lower intake temperatures and a fast spool time as opposed to FMIC that require extensive piping and lag.


  • Core Size: 19.5″ x 8″ x 4.5″ (495 x 197 x 115 mm)
  • Supports up to 550whp

COBB Tuning Press Release – New COBB Subaru Turbo Inlet Hoses Available!

December 24th, 2015 by Ernest Lo


Constructed of black 5-ply silicone, the COBB Turbo Inlet is a direct replacement for your 2008-2016 STI! The custom silicone construction of the COBB Turbo Inlet rejects high engine bay temperatures and keeps the intake air closer to ambient temperature. The steel wire reinforced design eliminates the issue of hose collapse that other inlet hoses suffer under vacuum at peak demand, yet allows adequate flex between the engine and the intake.

Utilizing the COBB Turbo Inlet will eliminate the factory ‘accordion-style’ hose that can cause turbulence in the intake tract. Increasing the efficiency of the inlet will reduce stress on the engine as it is able to breathe much easier with a higher-flowing intake path.


  • 5-Ply Silicone in Stealth Black
  • Larger Diameter Allows for Increased Potential Air Flow Delivery to the Turbo
  • Increase Horsepower, Decrease Turbo Spool Time, Improve Throttle Response and Acceleration
  • Direct OEM Replacement
  • Design for Standard Sized Inlets on the Turbo of 2.4″

For more information on this turbo inlet hose, check out COBB.

PERRIN Performance Press Release – Wing Stabilizer for 2015-16 STI Now Available!

December 23rd, 2015 by Ernest Lo


The PERRIN STI Wing Stabilizer for the 2015+ Subaru WRX STI reduces flex and bounce in your wing while adding WRC styling.

Fitting perfectly between the wing and trunk lid, the PERRIN Wing Stabilizer supports your wing from excessive vibration and vertical movement, eradicating bounce in the wing. Simply place the stabilizer(s) under the wing and secure it using our 3M VHB tape. This makes installation of our stabilizer a solid yet completely reversible upgrade.

The PERRIN Wing Stabilizer has a tapering airfoil shape which reduces drag and greatly reduces the possibility of added noise. Molded from black plastic with an OEM like texture, wing stabilizers look good right out of the box or paint them for a color matched OEM look.

Recommended configurations include using a single stabilizer to eliminate wing bounce all together and two or three stabilizers for an aggressive WRC look.

For more information on the STI Wing Stabilizer, check out PERRIN.

Agency Power Press Release – Powerful Additions for the 2015 Subaru WRX!!

October 30th, 2015 by Ernest Lo


Developing yet another high quality component for the Subaru market, Agency Power is pleased to announce its release of the 2015+ WRX turbo manifold.

Agency Power saw a need for a complete exhaust upgrade for the newly redesigned Subaru WRX and began testing. The new body style featured a completely new power plant, FA20DIT, to supply energy to the four wheels. But like most factory exhaust systems, they lack performance, sound, and tend to be very restrictive.

Starting from the front of the vehicle we designed a much better free flowing turbo manifold. Utilizing 1.5” schedule10 thick-wall stainless steel, we were able to maximize heat absorption and heat dissipation, while still being strong enough to support the weight of the turbo. The new flanges were water jetted out for precise fitment to ensure leak free junctions, 3/8” thick at the turbine side of the manifold and 1/4” thick at both exhaust port banks.

For more information on this turbo manifold, check out Agency Power.

Turbosmart Press Release – New Releases for Nissan: Kompact BOV For Juke 1.6T

October 29th, 2015 by Ernest Lo


The Turbosmart Kompact Dual Port blow-off valve is a direct replacement for the stock bypass valve on the Subaru WRX MY08-14 as well as the new Nissan Juke/Pulsar Turbo. Standard valves crack with age and heat cycling, and rely on rubber diaphragms which perish. They’re also simply not designed to handle increased boost levels. Turbosmart’s Kompact offers big blow-off valve performance in a small package. Its billet aluminium construction provides strength, while the precision-machined lightweight piston gives excellent valve response and sealing without relying on rubber diaphragms or O-rings, so it’s far more durable, and guards against compressor surge even when the boost is turned up.

The Kompact Dual Port features a 50-50 split operation between recirculating and vent-to-atmosphere. One recirc port keeps the car’s ECU happy, while one vent-to-atmosphere port gives the classic Turbosmart blow-off valve sound we know and love.

Supplied With:
Port blanking plate, Pink Spring (installed), Gasket.

For more information on this blow-off valve, check out Turbosmart.

GrimmSpeed Press Release – New Product Announcement – StealthBox Intake System for 2015-2016 Subaru WRX!

October 20th, 2015 by Ernest Lo


Inspiration for the StealthBox Intake came from internal discussions about what we wanted from an intake system for the 2015+ WRX. Of course performance is the highest priority, but at GrimmSpeed so much more than that goes into a product. We wanted an intake that purred quietly under normal driving circumstances, but would roar at wide open throttle. We wanted an intake that looked at home in the well-sported 2015+ WRX engine bay instead of a shoebox stuffed into the fender area. From here, the SteathBox was born. We took the concept one step further and referenced the F-117 Nighthawk as inspiration for the stealthy look of the GrimmSpeed heat shield. It should come as no surprise that the performance it packs is equally unique.

Quick Specs

  • +32wtq (14.3%) and +21whp (9.6%)
  • Designed in CAD – Perfect mating with the factory turbo and ram-air scoop
  • Low bend angle aluminum tube – Minimize restriction and maximize performance
  • Shielded MAF sensor placement – Protects MAF from heat, which increases accuracy of readings
  • Made in the USA – Manufactured right here in Minnesota
