Here at Mishimoto, we've decided to expand our line of 2015 WRX parts. Designed for applications that demand the greatest airflow and cooling capabilities, the Mishimoto 2015 WRX Front-Mount Intercooler Kit will provide your 2015 WRX with the ability to make the most horsepower and torque possible. This 2015 WRX intercooler was designed with a large 28 intercooler core that provides the maximum cooling capability without excessive pressure drops that will wear out any turbocharger over time. The Mishimoto 2015 WRX front-mount intercooler features smooth cast end tanks that are CFD tested for maximum airflow with no sharp walls or bends from cut-and-weld end tanks that disrupt airflow. The intercooler provides the best airflow and heat-exchange properties for those time-attack laps, or a 10-second blast down the quarter mile.

The Mishimoto Subaru WRX Front-Mount Intercooler also features four mandrel-bent aluminum pipes for optimum airflow. The hot-side pipes are 2.25 in diameter to keep airflow velocities high, giving your car an instant response without the excessive throttle lag that plagues many front-mount intercooler designs. The hot-side pipe also features a CNC-machined flange for a leak free connection to the turbo. The cold side of the system features 2.5 to 2.75 mandrel-bent aluminum tubing for maximum airflow and to match the diameter of your throttle body.

This 2015 WRX front-mount intercooler kit contains everything needed for a worry-free installation, including an application-specific crash bar that both supports the intercooler and mounts to existing points on the vehicle. No cutting of the front bumper or drilling is required to install the crash bar and intercooler. The kit includes all necessary mounting brackets, including a new bracket for the air intake. Our 2015 WRX front-mount intercooler kit also includes every coupler and clamp you need for a clean install, and complements the Mishimoto Subaru WRX Performance Air Intake for added cooling power.

Mishimoto tested this WRX intercooler on our Stage 2 265 whp 2015 WRX to find significant drops in AITs (air intake temperatures), and it has also been flow tested to over 600 whp! The 2015 WRX front-mount intercooler is available with either a Sleek Silver or Stealth Black cooler and, like all our 2015 WRX parts, includes the Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty, ensuring superior product quality and craftsmanship.

Note This kit does not fit with fog light equipped vehicles

Mishimoto recommends that this intercooler kit, not be used with the stock ECU programming. It is highly recommended that the customer be able to retune the vehicle’s ECU after installing the intercooler kit. Power gains will vary depending on the size of the turbo, exhaust system, fuel system, and type of ECU tune that is applied to the vehicle.

This kit is rated for approximately 600 whp during normal operating conditions. Maximum horsepower potential will be near 700 whp. Exceeding these horsepower or pressure limits could require a custom-size front-mount intercooler.

A:

Hey Santiago,

Thanks for reaching out to us. Unfortunately, our front mount intercooler kit for the 2015 WRX is not compatible with the oil cooler kit for the same vehicle. We apologize for the inconvenience. This is due to ths tight space requirements and location of both kits.

Please send an email to support@mishimoto.com and we would be happy to assist further.

Thanks,

Chris
