Meticulous Engineering, Unparalleled Craftsmanship

GrimmSpeed Intercoolers have set the gold standard for how a high-performance heat exchanger should be crafted. Our intercoolers have always maintained the delicate balance of low-pressure drop and high-temperature rejection, which is vital to safety and performance for your turbocharged Subaru engine. How can we possibly improve upon what is already touted as the best?  The answer is exactly what enthusiasts have been anticipating for years: Introducing the GrimmSpeed 08-14 WRX Front Mount Intercooler Kits! 

Quick Specs

  • 27”x11”x4" Cross Flow Core – Durable Bar and Plate Construction, balanced perfectly between pressure drop and heat rejection
  • Cast Aluminum End Tanks – Designed for equal flow distribution and minimum pressure drop
  • Steel Bolt-on Mounting Brackets – Robust mounting solution to minimize movement and maximize adjustability
  • No Permanent Chassis Modification – Light bumper cutting will be necessary to fit the large core (fog light delete required for 08-10 style bumper) 
  • Compatible with Factory or GrimmSpeed Intake – Removal of snorkel required; GrimmSpeed Intake recommended for maximum performance
  • Pressure Tested – Cleaned, sealed, and guaranteed to work prior to delivery
  • Available in Raw Aluminum or Satin Black Powder coat – Uncoated or resilient powder coat finish to protect against rock chips
  • High Quality, Pre-applied GrimmSpeed Vinyl Decal – Show your pride for the BEST front mount intercooler on the market, or easily peel it off
  • No Tune Required – No change in maximum boost or time to spool so it's safe to install and drive
  • Welded and Inspected by Hand in Minneapolis, MN - For consistency and top quality control



  • Thick .090” Wall, 2.5” Diameter 6061 Aluminum Piping – Beadrolled and CNC mandrel-bent on a large radius for maximum flow; lightweight and heat dispersant
  • Precision Pipe Routing - Retain factory components and avoid unnecessary trimming
  • Retains Factory Fog Light Mounting on 10-14 Style Bumpers - 08-10 bumpers will require fog light modification/delete
  • 5-ply Silicone Couplers – Custom-molded and reinforced to last through demanding environments
  • Breeze Hi-Torque Liner Clamps – Stainless steel for lasting looks and grip with an integrated liner to prevent damage to the silicone
  • Durable Red or Black Wrinkle Powder Coat – Keeps pipes protected against corrosion while looking great. A perfect match to your other GrimmSpeed parts!
  • OEM Bypass Valve Location – Eases installation and allows for use of most aftermarket BPVs

As with other FMIC kits, the GrimmSpeed Front Mount Intercooler requires the removal of your factory bumper beam in order to fit its massive core. The factory bumper beam aids in chassis rigidity and adds reinforcement to your factory bumper cover. To help keep chassis deflection at bay and to keep any large dents out of your front fascia we’re offering the GrimmSpeed Bumper Bar as an optional add-on. Our bumper bar is constructed of thick mild steel, welded to robust mounting plates that are machined for weight savings. The entire bumper bar is covered in a durable black powder coat for good looks and longevity!


  • Thick .125” Wall, 1.375” Diameter DOM Mild Steel – Designed and built tough to outlast your vehicle
  • Robust .375” Mounting Plates – Thick for strength, skeletoned for weight savings
  • Reduces Chassis Deflection – Maintains chassis rigidity vs not running a bumper beam [bar not intended to be a substitute for the OEM crash protection]
