* LIMITED EDITION *


GROUP BUY: (2008-2010) Impreza GRB (STI Specific) - Intercooler Splitter

What is it?

Subtle Solutions: (08-10) Impreza (STI Specific) - Intercooler Splitter was designed to help divert air traveling through the integrated hoodscoop evenly over the top of the Stock "STI" TMIC (will also fit some aftermarket Intercoolers). This splitter mounts directly on top of your TMIC using the (2) M8 stock mounting bols. The splitter divides the entering air into 3 equal sections and allows for optimum flow onto the intercooler.



More information...

Your intercooler acts like a radiator and cools down the heated air coming out of your turbocharger right before it enters your engine. And like a radiator, the intercooler depends on a constant flow of outside air from your hood scoop at its surface to keep the intake temperatures lower.

Colder air is denser than hot air, and can be compressed more efficiently, resulting in more power and less detonation. If you have ever pulled over after a spirited drive and felt your intercooler, you would notice that it can get pretty hot. This is partly due to the ineffective design of the factory metal splitter inside your hood scoop. With the way the factory splitter is designed, air entering through the hood scoop is only directed over about 50% of the intercooler’s surface area.

The Intercooler Splitter has specially angled fins that rise into your hood scoop. These fins collect incoming air and disperse it evenly over the entire surface area of your intercooler, dramatically increasing intercooler efficiency. This increase in intercooler efficiency will result in lower intake temperatures, and more power! The improvements seen make this a perfect upgrade, even for a car with a factory intercooler and hood scoop.

Unlike most other companies in the industry, all of our products are designed, engineered, and manufactured in the USA! :)

If it was $50 you might get some takers, but at $250 or even $215 that is hella steep for what boils down to a peice of bent metal...

Thanks for your .02

All of our products are MADE in the USA, not Taiwan, China, Singapore, etc.

I will admit, our products aren't "cheap"

They are also by no means half-a$$ed, half-baked, or just "bent pieces of metal".

With any aftermarket product...you get what you pay for.

I'm certainly not suggesting your product is not of sound quality (I actually have your license plate delete)... I just think this product (and the license plate delete) are hugely overpriced. Sorry if my opinion offends you.

Not really, my post was really just based on the observation that you have had no bites in the two weeks this has been up and speculation that if the price was lower you may well have sold more units.

We haven't had a chance to bump our post to the top of the vendor forums list in the last week or so.

This is also posted on a few other Subie forums.

Our markup is not very much at all on this product. You also have to remember, shipping is FREE. Take the shipping out and you'll be sub $200.00

You do know that the zero sports one is $250+ right?

Bump.

I s'pose the Zero Sports one is grossly overpriced, then. Neat concept, you should update this thread with your newer pricing (according to the website.) Good luck!

Does this block off the back portion of the IC?
No, it divides the airflow into 3-4 sections.

See the pictures in post #1.

Let us know if you have any further questions or would like to place an order.
