nice job, looks pretty clean...i like how you fit the fmic in there without cuttin the bumper support. what turbo mani is that? do you have electric fans? i like the rad. shroud to be on there, i think it looks bare without it. thats just me though.

What intercooler are you running and how hard was it to tuck it up under there? Thats a really clean install and still retains the funtionality of the bumper support, definately something I'd want to do.

if you dont have electric fans u need to install the radiator fan shroud. otherwise youre losing a lot of air current. when my buddy installed his sr, he left the shroud off and u could feel a ton of air escaping. when he put the shroud on, it really drew a lot of air back into the engine bay.

i have electric fans from an 02 subaru forrester including some custom ducting for them, and we are still not done with all the ducting we will be doing. the fmic underbracing helps for underneath and our bumper is already cut out to fit with it. im at work now, so ill get more pics and info up soon.

finally put my green "s" badge on and test fit the newly cut bumper.


and here are some pics of the engine bay.

power steering lines were moved around a bit.


fuse box with fuses for electric fans


stock bov is tucked away under there.


electric fan wiring for 02 subaru forrester fans, new water pump, painted pulleys, shiny bolts, and samco hoses. and that bracket holding the wiring for the cas was pulled from the ka auto tranny. looks stock doesnt it? (there are lots more little touches like that as well)

now get a front lip!
i think im gonna try making one out of that rubber that goes on the bottom of garage doors. it should work well in covering the bottom where the ic and underbracing sticks down. i think it would look good if i resprayed that bumper and bought a lip for it to go across, but i might as well just get the origin stream bumper im wanting, so i'll just do that when i am tired of looking at this one.
