I am ditching the TMIC and FMIC air to air ideas....its time for Air To Water Intercooling!

It SHOULD be far more superior if its built right...i had a few ideas that I need to research so I can make sure this is all going to work.....

Dont know what I am going to use for the AW core yet...there are some custom ones that bolt on inplace of the stock WRX/STi TMIC, that are not too bad in price...kits are EXPENSIVE tho...I still might go with the stock JDM AWIC core that come on the legacys....

the actual exchanger core...its going to be HUGE. Im not going to falter on that one. THe larger, the better....more area for cooling that water down and keeping ti cooler overall.

I've still yet to pick out what kind of 12v motor i need...Again, research time tonight...GT4 will be resting.

Correct. I was planning on a HUGE heat echanger for the water....and using the stock non-USDM Legacy AWIC core.

The water/air intercooler is on the list for my ea81t also. How do you think you will run the water pump? ie turns on when the water reaches a certain temp, turns on with boost, or on all the time etc.
