OEM Splitter choking your TMIC? Fix that.

These have both been a long time in the making and as the popularity of GrimmSpeed intercooler offerings has skyrocketed, we've had a massive amount of demand for splitter options that maximize performance of our Top Mount Intercooler on the 2015-21 STI platform, with some users producing 600-700whp with them. These splitters are designed to seal perfectly with your GrimmSpeed TMIC, ensuring that the system works as efficiently as possible. With the dense cores that we use, forcing ambient air through the core with a properly fitting splitter is more important than ever and these splitters will allow you to do that with ease.

For STI owners that are currently using a GrimmSpeed TMIC, this is a must have.

Our cars, with even mild modification, create some serious heat. As the turbo compresses your intake air, it heats up and it’s not unusual to see air temperatures of over 400è_F entering your intercooler. For that reason, you’ve probably upgraded to a larger, more capable top mount. That intercooler uses ambient air flowing over your hood and through your scoop to cool the hot compressed air and if you’re not using a proper splitter, you’re not getting the most out of your TMIC. The GrimmSpeed line of splitters increases the size of the opening to perfectly fit your GrimmSpeed TMIC, which can increase your internal core volume by as much as 200%. You’re going to need every bit of that additional ambient air to keep things cool.

Design

Each of these splitters has been designed to make the best possible use of the air entering your scoop. We’ve opened up the bottom of the splitter to better fit your GrimmSpeed TMIC and we’ve redesigned the vanes that direct air from your scoop down to your intercooler. In addition, we’ve added features for up to three intercooler water sprayers to each splitter. Each splitter was designed in CAD and tested via flow simulation prior to production. Our engineers used 3D scanned CAD data from each vehicle along with the CAD data from our TMIC development to design a splitter that fits well and evenly distributes air across the entire core.

Materials
You’ll also find that the GrimmSpeed splitters are very lightweight. We’ve tested some of ‘the other guys’ splitters and have found that they’ve chosen stainless steel instead of aluminum. The reason for this is likely as a band-aid, to ensure stiffness so that the splitter holds its shape. Instead of selecting a stiffer material, we’ve stiffened the design, which has allowed us to use 20 gauge 5052 aluminum and drop the weight of these splitters by 300% over the competition. Instead of welding the assemblies, we’ve opted to use rivets. These offer the same mechanical joint but without stressing the material and because of that, you don’t have to worry about breaking welds or your splitter cracking. With each splitter, we’ll be including a length of a EPDM rubber bulb gasket, which installs with ease and will hold up very well to the harsh under-hood environment.
