I got the complete kit no fabrication required and got the intercooler anodized red. Before I even received the intercooler I was sent numerous photos of several different angles of the tiniest little imperfection from the paint shop. Was told they cab send it back but then I'm looking at another 3 weeks before they get it back or if I take it as is they will refund me 100 bucks from the cost of getting it painted.. considering I could barely see said blemish I choose the refund. Then I literally received the intercooler not even 24 hours later which was awesome. The kit was so much sexier in person, no amount of pictures will ever do it justice. Install was a breeze and this was my very first intercooler install ever. Couldn't be more happy. Still got a lil work before my car will be up and running so I honestly can't speak on actual performance but just overall quality and everything else has so far exceeded anything I ever imagined! It's by far not one of the cheapest kits but totally worth every single one of the 195, 200 pennies spent!!
It’s the best modification, not only aesthetically but it’s so much better than the stock intercooler, I recommend it to anyone it’s such a great product
Love the intercooler great quality. Bones that ETS makes there intercooler piping out of stainless steel! Couldn’t ask for a better intercooler kit.
Everything fits great. I did have a couple questions and ets responded quickly. Great products!

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What turbo configuration would I pick if I have a vf48
Most people purchase the stock replacement piping kit because it comes with a 2.0" turbo outlet coupler. The VF48 has a 1 7/8" outlet, so the factory 1.75" is hard to stretch over, where the stock replacement 2.00" coupler will need to be snugged down with the clamp. Personally, I would go with the stock replacement piping kit.
Will my 2006 STI stock intake fit this product? If not, what would you recommend? TY!
Unfortunately the stock intake will not work with our FMIC, but we do make one that is fully compatible in both stainless and titanium!
is the anodized color the intercooler and the piping?
Anodizing is for the intercooler only.
Will the rotated turbo configuration option work for a stock location turbo if I plan on upgrading in the future.
No, if you want to run a stock location turbo first you will want to select the stock turbo option and the rotated turbo kit will include the other pipe you need to convert it later.
Will the intercooler piping come with an IAT bung for speed density? If not how can I request it upon ordering since I don't see the option
Yes all piping kits include an IAT bung and the plug for the bung now.
Will this kit retain fog lights?
On the 04-07 models you lose fog lights.
What power numbers can I hit with a 4 inch intercooler? Curious cause I plan on going fully built eventually and don't want to buya intercooler and then have to resell and re-buy.
The 4" core has seen over 1000WHP but typically we recommend it for applications up to about 800-850WHP. If you are making over or around that I would look into our 5" option.
Does this kit come with overflow tank and relocator
This kit includes an overflow tank and relocating hardware.
Does this kit work for the wrx models? If not, why won’t it work?
It would work, but you need to specify that it is a WRX. Also if it is a pre 04 car the chassis has variances that make it slightly more difficult to install. With that, it has definitely been done.
Dose the "ETS 04-07 SUBARU STI FRONT MOUNT INTERCOOLER KIT" come with a stock mount for my perrin BOV to bolt to?? thanks
If you select the stock BOV option it will come flanged for the stock BOV and any stock replacement. It also sits in the factory location so the recirc hose will work with it.
does the "ETS 04-07 SUBARU STI FRONT MOUNT INTERCOOLER KIT" also fit a 06' WRX?
There is an option to select 04-05 or 06-07. The kits are different.
What is the dimensions off the 4" core and the piping diameter
2.5" piping diameter, 26"x11.5" for the core.
