Taking a fresh approach formed from years of motorsport and component design experience, Process West are proud to announce the new ‘Verti-Cooler’ slant mount intercooler system of the G3 series (2008-2014) WRX. Designed and engineered with rapid air-charge cooling and flow-path efficiency as the key objectives, Verti-Cooler is a revolutionary take on Subaru intercooler design that takes turbocharger cooling to a new and previously un-seen level, guaranteeing the best performance and improved engine durability.


ORIGINAL INTERCOOLING
Computer modeling and real world testing of the factory Subaru Top Mount Intercooler shows that while cooling effectively in short bursts, a lack of exit air path from the bottom side of the intercooler creates a virtual ‘traffic jam’ of hot air in the engine bay which rapidly reduces intercooler efficiency in demanding conditions. Making the stock mount intercooler larger does improve the rate at which heat-soak occurs but does little to address the critical factor of getting the heated air away from the intercooler body itself.

VERTI-COOLER ADVANTAGE
Verti-Cooler combines the advantages of a large and free-flowing Process West core (400mm flow length, 205mm stack height, 120mm thick) with a design that mounts the new intercooler at a 15 degree, near vertical angle in the engine bay. Packaged with a new hood duct design that force-feeds external airflow straight onto the intercooler fins, there is now a highly efficient air exit path courtesy of the Verti-Cooler mounting angle that flows all of this (now heated) air back down through the engine bay and out the underside of the car through the transmission tunnel for a shallow, cool, and low restriction exit-path. Compare then the near on 90 degree angle that the air must turn with the stock intercooler setup in place, and the advantages of the Process West Verti-Cooler design become clear. Verti-cooler also has the largest volume of any aftermarket intercooler for the G3 WRX with core measurements of 400mm flow length x 205mm stack height x 120mm thick.

In true Process West fashion everything you need to fit the Verti-Cooler to your G3 Subaru WRX comes in a complete package, including specially formed silicon hoses, high quality constant tension hose clamps, the Verti-Cooler intercooler body, and the matching under-hood air duct/splitter. There is also an optional silicone hose for Verti-Cooler that allows for direct fitment to traditional non-stock turbochargers. At the time of order you can specify whether you want your Verti-Cooler in a satin-black or silver finish.

IS VERTI-COOLER FOR ME?
When getting that race-winning edge of stronger performance for longer periods is all critical to your application then Process West Verti-Cooler has no peers in the Subaru performance market. A combination of proven Process West engineering and leading edge fresh-thinking design ensures that Verti-Cooler is the very best option for your G3 onwards Subaru WRX.

This thing is massive

I did not expect this intercooler to be so big, but it fits perfect and looks great. If you need to have a bung welded on for an iat sensor the vht wrinkle black is a near perfect match.

Great product

Pros: chunky tmic, looks great, hard to heat soak but it will happen.

Cons: not all bov/bpv will fit on USDM due to the brake master cylinder. Get a turbo smart kompact bpv.

Suggestions - do your pitchstop mount while you're in there and have spare plastic clips

Awesome product

You get everything you need to install this. It’s like 3 x the side of the original Intercooler and makes a huge difference. I went with this over front mount because I think it make the engine look cleaner and also no turbo lag.

Awesome Product

fairly easy install, probably should’ve bought more plastic clips because i broke 90% of the original ones. overall only took me about 2 hours to get everything to fit right and tighten down. looks giant compared to the stock tmic, definitely a needed upgrade if you’re shooting for 400whp

Great product! Massive!

I could go on about how great this product is. How the welds are perfect, the finish is amazing, all the parts are correct, and the new hood scoop diffuser is absolutely amazing, but that’s not what I’m going to do. Let me tell you this. If you have done, or are going to do an STi 6 speed swap, the bracket that mounts to the transmission WILL NOT WORK. What comes with the kit mounts to the 5-speed. It does not bolt on to the pitch mount, but the bracket under the pitch mount. You need to get part number PWBRKT001 from Process West. That will make it work with the 6 speed. Otherwise, do what everyone else says, and keep everything loose until you have all the pieces in the right place, then tighten everything up. Once it’s done, it’s amazing! It looks outstanding, and the cooling efficiency is unbelievable. Hands down a great product! Installation doesn’t take too long. Just be patient. Overall, I love it.
