Swap out your overheated factory top mount intercooler for the PERRIN Front Mount Intercooler to get the most out of your turbocharged STI or WRX. Add power and a new bold look all in one!
The most important part of any intercooler system is the core. The core cools the charged air on the way to the engine. The factory Subaru tube and fin intercooler was designed to be easy to manufacture, but is not good for performance.
Perrin's testing has shown the optimum core design is the 3/8” bar and plate style that has a 3/8” charge air and ambient air path, instead of the common 1/4” size. The PERRIN bar and plate core design is much more durable than tube and fin with the ability to withstand rocks and other debris, which may enter the scoop. The PERRIN intercooler core is 28” long x 9.25” tall x 3.5” deep with a volume of 906.5 cu-in. giving the PERRIN Intercooler the best overall design for cooling and pressure drop!
Every PERRIN intercooler is powder coated to further protect your intercooler from the elements making it look awesome for years to come. Perrin intercoolers come in two finish options, a bright silver or stealth black powder coat.
The PERRIN designed end tanks control for near perfect dispersal of hot air across the intercooler core. By eliminating any 90º corners adding a smooth, and gradual taper from top to bottom turbulence is eliminated. Each end tank incorporates an innovative mounting tab to secure the core to the mounting beam.
Our intercooler support beam is constructed from boxed steel and powder coated black. Competitors use inexpensive aluminum bumper beams which save a little weight but are easily destroyed in a collision.
