MY07 Lib GT-B TMIC

Postby cpitts » Thu Dec 01, 2011 9:21 am

Hey guys,

I've got a MY07 GT-B and am wanting to understand where there restrictions are in the intake track.

I've already replaced the following items:
- silicon intake
- silicon 'short fat bit' from intake to MAF
- air filter
- air box modified for easier breathing

My goal is steady delivery of power and torque through the rev range whilst pushing the OEM setup as far as it'll go with a few minor efficiency gains along the way.

Have AVO measured the pressure loss across the OEM intercooler compared to the AVO intercooler? Also, how much power/heat is dissipated from the AVO I/C v's the OEM unit?

An good upgrade intercooler will give you better throttle response and power. It would in most cases where boost pressure has been increased allow a tuner to run more ignition timing and therefore increase the above improvements even further.

Thanks for the update Lee. Having improved stock intercooler (splitter and tight air seals around edges) on a MY05 WRX I appreciate the improvement that can come from better intercooling (torque and consistency in variable weather). You guys tuned it on a very hot day (36+) and it did a pretty tidy job for an otherwise pretty stock car. ;)

Given the 07 Lib GTB already has the splitter and air tight seal already, the next gain is from the bigger/deeper size of the IC and any reduction in pressure loss across the core.

The other gains in tuning from an IC would likely any offset gains from other components further in the inlet track (namely TGV's).

AAAARRRRRGGGG!! Tuning to a budget sucks! :P

Lee, did you manage to get some numbers around this product?
Power dissipation (at a couple of ambient temps) 15, 25, 35, 45'C ?
Pressure loss across std core v's the AVO TMIC
