Introducing new additions to Turbosmart‘s OEM-replacement Kompact Blow-Off Valve Range.
Turbosmart has expanded its model-specific Kompact Blow-Off Valve range, adding three new Dual Port blow-off valves to suit a number of Nissan, Subaru and Mazda models. If you have been looking for a blow-off valve that offers that classic vent-to-atmosphere BOV sound and performance in an affordable, easy-to-install and space-saving package, Turbosmart’s Kompact Dual Ports are the answer to your prayers.
The Kompact Dual Port is perfect for those seeking the high-performance sound of a Turbosmart Dual Port BOV on a stock or mildly-modified car. Priced below the larger Mazda, Subaru and Nissan Type 5 Dual Port blow-off valves, the Kompact maintains Turbosmart’s focus on quality and performance, proving that entry level pricing does not mean entry level performance. With its anodized billet aluminum body and lightweight piston, the Kompact offers extreme durability, superior response and excellent boost holding capability for its size.
Joining the existing Kompact Plumb Backs for these models, these new Dual Port valves feature a 50-50 split between recirculating vented air back into the intake, and venting to atmosphere. As a result, you get the response and ECU-friendly operation of a Plumb Back valve, but with the added head-turning sound of a vent-to-atmosphere BOV.
The new Kompact Dual Ports join an extensive list of model-specific parts made by Turbosmart. The three new valves are designed to fit the Mazdaspeed 3 and 6, 2001-2007 Subaru WRX, 2001-current WRX STi, and 2005-2007 Forester XT, and Nissan R32, R33 and R34 Skyline GTS-T, 1996-2001 RB25DET-engined Stagea and 2001-2007 Stagea Turbo models.
The standard valves on these cars are often made of plastic and use rubber diaphragms, unlike the highly durable machined billet construction of the Kompact Range, which can withstand years of engine heat cycling in even the harshest conditions. The standard valves are often not up to the task holding your boost and eliminating compressor surge, which is made worse as the car ages and the valve becomes brittle, cracks and can cause severe boost leaks – robbing you of reliability and performance!

The PERRIN Gurney Flap adds aggressive styling to your low-profile trunk spoiler. Without looking too intrusive, the Gurney flap modification adds a small amount of height to your existing spoiler for a clean, clearly modified look.
The PERRIN Gurney Flap is constructed from 10g plate aluminum to eliminate corrosion and rusting. Precision laser cut, slotted holes allow for alignment adjustments during installation for a perfect fit.
Each PERRIN Gurney Flap has a semi-gloss black finish which looks good with every Subaru color. We ensure durability against the elements by using powdercoat paint which can be applied thicker and has a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.
The PERRIN Gurney Flap has a small enough profile that rear visibility is virtually unchanged. After installation, the third brake light assembly still sits higher than the gurney flap.
Installation of the PERRIN Gurney Flap is easy with our step-by-step instructions and addition of our included threadsert hand tool. The PERRIN Gurney Flap does require drilling into the existing low-profile trunk spoiler and the final look is definitely worth it.

With Subaru’s MacPherson strut design, the vehicles entire vertical suspension load is transmitted to the top of the vehicle’s strut tower. For this reason there is inherent flex within the strut towers relative to the vehicle body. During performance driving there is enough flex to alter what should be static camber, toe, and caster settings. This change can make steering response and body roll more pronounced and unpredictable.
The PERRIN Performance strut tower brace solves this problem. During cornering, the PERRIN strut brace transfers the load of each strut tower via tension and compression of the strut bar to the opposing strut tower. This reduces flex by sharing the load and tying the strut towers together. The improved chassis rigidity enhances steering precision under high load conditions and reduces understeer. Tire wear and metal fatigue in the strut tower area can be reduced.
Utilizing heat-treated cast aluminum feet and mandrel bent, thin wall 4130 Cro-moly tubing, the PERRIN bar is strong while remaining lightweight.
The strut bar is powder coated for protection against the elements, the textured finish will look awesome for years to come. The feet are a glossy black powder coat, pad printed with the PERRIN logo. The PERRIN Strut Tower Brace for WRX / STI is available in red and black wrinkle powder coating.

Through the years the soft rubber bushings deteriorate after constant flexing and vibration as well as being punished through weathering; this can cause wear and tear and may seriously damage your engine and transmission. Megan Racing has developed a Hard-Rubber Reinforced Transmission Mount for the Subaru Forester 13+, Impreza and WRX 14+, and 09-14 Legacy BM-BR chassis.
These reinforced mounts are perfect for the enthusiast who is looking to get the most from their vehicle as they will allow more energy to be transferred to the wheels instead of absorbing the energy into the soft OEM rubber.

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.

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.
