With Top Mount Intercoolers, Bigger is Better
So here's the BEST!
|As boost pressure is increased, the
temperature of the inlet air increases and robs power from the engine.
revised for 2003, the APS dual entry top mount intercooler with
twin induction to better spread the cooling effect on the incoming charge
is designed for maximum street performance on any MY01 onwards WRX or
STI. With the significantly lower pressure drop (less than 0.02 Bar / 0.3 psi at 240 kW / 320 hp across the intercooler and 1.6 psi total pressure drop including the throttle body), it's a perfect partner for a high output roller bearing turbocharger.
For optimum performance, the intercooler core itself is internally finned with large internal charge air channels.
This results in huge cooling capacity with very high contact area for heat transfer and the highest volumetric air flowrate. Just as importantly, the APS cast alloy end tanks ensure
even charge air distribution through the intercooler core
without "hot spots" commonly found in aftermarket intercoolers.
That along with a huge 11,075 cm3 (677 in3) of intercooler core volume compared to the standard intercooler's 4,305 cm3 ensures the maximum possible intercooling performance.
At nearly 2.6 times the volume of the standard intercooler, the APS top mount intercooler is absolutely the largest top mount intercooler that is possible to practically install in the late model WRX or STI - with core dimensions of 51 cm x 19 cm x 11.43 cm (20.07" x 7.5" x 4.5").
Blow off valve mount cast into the APS TMIC for direct bolt on fitment
of factory style flanged blow off valves.
|Please note that the APS TMIC includes the APS one piece compressor discharge duct. This high flow casting has superior flow to the two piece STI component and vastly superior durability to the standard plastic WRX duct.
The APS Compressor Discharge Duct guarantees reliable air supply and is designed to withstand and tested to extreme boost and temperature
