GrimmSpeed Radiator Shroud w/ Tool Tray - Product Release

2002-2007 Impreza/WRX/STi Fitment


http://www.grimmspeed.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=253




3 Probelms. 1 Clever Solution.

  • Innovative Integrated Tool Tray
  • Keeps Radiator Running Cooler
  • Built-In Radiator Stays
  • Heavy Duty DuPont Powder Coat


How many times have you lost a wrench or socket in your engine bay? Yeah, that's what I thought, too many to count. Finally after all of these years of losing tools, GrimmSpeed has come to the rescue. Introducing our Subaru Radiator Shroud w/ Integrated Tool Tray. Another common issue that we are fixing is that in stock form, because of the way the front of the Subaru is designed, there is incoming air that doesn't actually pass through the radiator because of some large gaps in sealing at the top. Our shroud forces this air back through the radiator which in turn keeps the radiator cooler.  Thirdly, we snuck in yet another cool little feature that you won't find on other radiator shrouds; we have incorporated the radiator stays into our shroud. Yep, you can now ditch those OEM stays and transition over to our super clean approach to using the shroud as the radiator stay.  Wrap all of this up in some Heavy Duty DuPont™ Wrinkle Powder Coat and you have yourself a sexy little innovative package.

"This is another great example of not green lighting a project until our Engineering Team can find a way to innovate. The Shroud project was in our project queue for over a year before I gave the go ahead...why?...because we needed to find a way to bring new solutions to our customers instead of just releasing a product for the sake of just releasing a product" - Justin Grimm

Promising to deliver, it's what you can expect from GrimmSpeed™

Have you tested it with Aftermarket Radiators (Mishimoto or Koyo)?

I had a Rad Shroud that fit my OEM Rad but then didn't quite fit the Mishimoto.

Love the tool tray idea... but thats what my TMIC is for :)
Go home Subaru. You're drunk.

Fits with the Koyo. Mishimoto moved the cap so its not in the oem position so it wont work. We did get it to fit on a mishimoto radiatour though with a bit of trimming.

Go a step further and make it magnetic and a tad bit deeper (Patent pending).   ^-^

Can't go much deeper as it will hit the radiator. Because of the demand for magnetic setups, we are going to put together a quick DIY for you guys to at least hold you over.

Magnetic would be genius.
Awesome shroud by the way.

Man, I would LOVE this for my 2000 impreza. Anyone know about fitment?

Also, some suggestions for grimmspeed, have you though about magnetizing the tool tray?
And this is probably semi-impossible, but a beer holder or even just a round slightly recessed flat bit, would be unreal. Maybe in your alt cover design....
haha a guy can dream right?  ::)

Unfortunately they will not work on the older models. I myself have an OBS and I wish I could use one.

We've looked in to the magnet idea and the best way to do this is to source some thin magnets of your own. To include them in production would raise the cost of the part astronomically.
