The most important part of any intercooler system is the core. The core cools the charged air on the way to the engine. The factory Subaru tube and fin intercooler was designed to be easy to manufacture, but is not good for performance.
Perrin testing has shown the optimum core design is the 3/8" bar and plate style that has a 3/8" charge air and ambient air path, instead of the common 1/4" size. The PERRIN bar and plate core design is much more durable than tube and fin with the ability to withstand rocks and other debris, which may enter the scoop. The PERRIN intercooler core is 28" long x 9.25" tall x 3.5" deep with a volume of 906.5 cu-in. giving the PERRIN Intercooler the best overall design for cooling and pressure drop.
PERRIN is one of the only intercooler manufactures who pressure tests every intercooler. We pressurize every intercooler to 50 psi. on our special jigs. This ensures you never get a core with a leak! Even the slightest leak can cause your vehicle to lose power, literally bleeding turbo boost pressure out the intercooler.
The PERRIN Front Mount Intercooler kit only adds 9lbs of weight! If you take all the factory pieces you remove and compare them to the PERRIN parts you are installing, you will find you only added 9lbs!
Every PERRIN intercooler is powder coated to further protect your intercooler from the elements making it look awesome for years to come. Our intercoolers come in two finish options, a bright silver or stealth black powder coat.
