Grimmspeed top mount intercooler splitter for Fxt with 04-07 STi intercooler. Cool runnings…

Hey!.... Welcome to this week's #modmonday will be featuring @Grimmspeed 04-08 Forester splitter for 04-07 STi intercooler. I have had this equipped to the #4Runter for a 8 months with no issues and great fitment and design. 

After upgrading my Forester to the VF39 turbo and STi intercooler I needed a better way to properly flow air through the intercooler to keep the engine and driver content! If you have upgraded you have noticed how woefully inadequate the factory splitter is for your new bigger intercooler, this has been cad designed for maximum efficiency.

It is an aluminum construction and is black textured powdercoated for durability and definitely spruces up the engine bay. There are spots to add up to 3 intercooler water sprayers to keep it nice and cool, it is an awesome add on. Looking to take advantage of those in the future.

Everything about this is very well engineered and ready to step your car up to the next level. I have been very pleased with it and cannot think of any issues. Everything fits and works just as its advertised. 

Over one and year after install it is still a great piece. I was using spacers to keep my 08+ Sti intercooler out of the A/c lines which roughed up the sealing edge but nothing too crazy. Otherwise everything else is working just fine and very well made.
