15+ Sti FMIC and FMIC Piping Installation
Please review install notes for 2015-2020 Subaru STi RK Titanium inter cooler piping kit.
This is not a step by step procedure but rather install notes and best practices. If you do not have experience with install work, please have a shop conduct this procedure.
Total time: 2.5-3 hours
Basic hand tools needed
Removal of front bumper is necessary. There are several YouTube videos on this procedure.
1: Remove rubber hood shroud by pulling away from the grommets
2: Remove front core support bracket drivers side; there are 4x bolts to remove.
3: Relocate horn on passenger side
4: Add spacers to windshield washer reservoir. There are 3x 10mm bolts to remove to pull the reservoir away. The reservoir does not need to be fully removed. Add a 1/2” spacer between the lower 2 mounting brackets and the reservoir with included longer bolts. The upper bracket does not need a spacer.
5: Use the remaining 1/2” spacer and bolt for the passenger side new Intercooler pipe to secure the affixed bracket to the top of the frame rail.
6: Secure all T bolt clamps. Be sure not to over tighten the clamps as it could cause warping or deforming of the titanium tubing
7: Reinstall bumper to car. Please note, trimming may be required behind fog light bezel. On our 16’ shop vehicle, no trimming was necessary.
