Front mount

Recommended Posts

Hi guys i know this has bin documented to death but ive sort of got lost in the pages of contradicting info so im just after advice


Im wondering if to install a front mount on my wrx now some people say theres no need others say its well worth it so opinions please

Also just to add i think it wud look awsone with one hanging out the bumper but that alone isnt enough to justify the cost

depends on how much bhp you want to run. if memory serves me correct a tmic is good for 330ish bhp. obviously a fmic will give a more consistent result and you wont suffer from the same heatsoak but on the other hand, our smaller turbos (if you still have one ofc :P) spool up faster and have less lag with a tmic.

And if memory serves me right you really start benefiting from a fmic when you get dat bigger turbo

On the standard td04 turbo don't bother. will be laggy.


anything over 300 will see improvements by going front mount, There's a bit of a misconception that you can run x power on x intercooler (tmic, fmic etc), its mroe a case of use. Andy forrest ran mid 8's on a top mount which is prob 800bhp, but no way a car doing more than 1/4 mile would do it on a tmic and that power.
