Bought the wrx with a stage 3 metallic disc clutch, K&N cold air intake,exhaust and a carbon fiber hood. Im wondering if i should change the innercooler from a top mount to a front mount innercooler, but if i do that i think im gonna have to take out my cold air intake because some of the pipes from the front mount innercooler will get in the way. Is it worth it?
I just digged up some info for you on the front mount. First, a professional tune IS necessary when running the front mount. There is also a delayed throttle response using the stock turbo, assuming that is what you have.
right now I would look for a better performing top mount intercooler until you upgrade your turbo and supporting mods.
