Tired of heat soak? We don't blame you!
It's time to upgrade to an intercooler that is designed specifically for the 2022+ WRX with performance in mind. Unlike other manufacturers we design all of our cores per application, which results in the absolute best performing intercooler on the market.
All of our cores feature an offset and staggered internal and external fin pack. The external fin pack is dense for maximum heat transfer, where the internal fin pack is less dense for maximum flow and performance. The key is finding the perfect balance between the two, which is what we do per application.
It's common for customers to be drawn to cheaper alternatives. Unfortunately those intercoolers are cheap for a reason! Most cheap intercoolers utilize a straight through internal fin pack, which acts more like a tunnel than a splitter; This results is much higher/hotter intake air temps, which then leads to timing reduction, knock, mis-fires, detonation, etc.
**If you have an ETS Turbo Kit or are planning to order one, it will come with Hot Side Piping that is specific to the ETS Turbo Kit**
The ETS 2022+ WRX Intercooler is designed to perform!
- We start by locating the inlets and outlets in the middle of the core, which allows for proper air distribution and flow throughout the core.
- Each inlet and outlet is hand ported to reduce turbulence and promote maximum flow. We've seen other manufacturers simply weld on a tube and not debur the inside, which creates excess turbulence and disrupts air flow through the core.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What are the physical dimensions of the finned area on the IC? LxH... thank you!
The core dimensions of the '22+ WRX FMIC is 26" wide x 11.38" tall. Thickness will depend on your selection - we have sizes ranging from 3.0" up to 4.0" for this application
What's the max hp per intercooler? 3" max, 3.5" max, and 4" max. Trying to figure out which one I need.
These intercoolers will be largely the same as our 2015-2021 Cores.
3" - 500-550whp
3.5" - 700-750whp
4.0" - 750whp+
We've got core to go up to 5" as well if necessary, we just haven't designed one yet.
Is there any cutting/trimming to be done during install, particularly with the thickest core option?
Yes, there is bumper modification necessary for install, you can check out the installation guide below
Is there excessive boost lag because of the large amount of piping from turbo to throttle body?
We have not noticed any significant lag added by a FMIC on this platform, and any perceived dip is usually outweighed by the increased power production.
Check out Prime Racing's shop WRX using our FMIC among other things - https://www.instagram.com/p/CodZJZyOwVM/ - the car seems to respond exceptionally with any additional tuning input as well, over 400wtq by 3200rpm!
