Please help ! V3/V4 sti tmic on sf5

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just purchased myself a 1997 sf5 forester which runs an ej20g. Cant find much info on this at all, wanting to know if a v3/v4 sti tmic will fit as it's the same design as the factory tmic (without bov directly mounted)

Welcome mate. 

 

I thought the SF5 had the BOV bolted onto the Intercooler. the same as most? Or am i misunderstanding 

 

 

like this one? ... if so then yea a v4/5 intercooler will ft.. but you could also go for he Legacy TT intercooler as it will fit too and flows slightly more... I have a spare one you can have if you are in AKL..

It's the steel Y pipe underneath that actually makes the performance difference, the plastic ones tend to collapse and not hold boost as well.

 

Swap that over and you're good to go

Thanks guys for the response, my intercooler is different from the one pictured. Same design as the v3/4 by the looks. Will look into the y pipe underneath.

Thank you but am in chch, and have sorted one out :)
