This site is dedicated to providing information about the "Bullet Proof" TMIC kit for modifying your turbocharged Subaru.

For those of you who read this post http://legacygt.com/forums/showthread.php/bulletproof-tmic-mod-lgt-08-wrx-158870.html you already know what this is. For those who haven’t read it, if you are still running you 05-09 LGT or 08+ WRX with the stock TMIC I highly recommend taking the time to read through the thread.

This modification has been around for some time now as an alternative to those looking to beef up their stock intercooler (either for durability or for increased boost levels) for a reasonable price—not everyone has the cash or the need for an aftermarket TMIC in order to meet their needs.  One of the problems with the kit up until now is that the fabrication of the metal pieces required for the kit is difficult, time consuming, and potentially dangerous to those without a reasonable amount of experience in cutting metal.  While my second attempt and making my own kit was successful, the first attempt ended with a pile of bent metal and bloody fingers.

***The kit will include all of the required aluminum pieces for the kit, plus 3 stainless zip ties to use in securing the rails (you will only need 2 zip ties for the kit, but I supply an extra in case you need it). Pieces in this kit will be straight-cut on each end and a “groove” will also be machined along the entire length of each piece to hold the zip ties in place; they will not be drilled. This kit should have everything you need to "bullet proof" your stock TMIC, aside from the banding tool required to sufficiently tighten the metal zip ties.

To confirm, here’s what will be included in the kit:

  • Four (4) pieces of aluminum channel designed and cut to fit on the top/bottom of the stock TMIC where the end tanks attach to the core
  • One (1) piece of aluminum channel designed and cut to fit on the front passenger corner of the stock TMIC where the end tank attaches to the core
  • Three (3) stainless steel zip ties
  • Three (3) plastic zip ties for securing vacuum lines
  • Instructions for installing the kit
