I got an intercooler meant for the 08 WRX and i lost my fogs completely as well. Not a big deal i ordered the covers for them and just gonna paint them black. I actually like the way it looks.

Does this FMIC or any for that matter retain the full front bumper beam?

Our DOT inspection cops where I am are super strict.

Also, Am I noticing crazy bends on the left side (drivers) right below the head light? Are all FMIC kits that aggressive on the bends?

Sorry to bump an ikd thread but I'm interested in this kit. How is the bottom of the core secured in place? I can't make it out from any pics I have seen. Any problems refitting the under tray or any other of the lower plastic covers behind the bumper?

Here are pics of mine with a satin black thermal dispersant paint used on radiators.
Excuse the camera phone and dirty car.

Anymore pics from the engine bay of yours fitted? Looking to get this kit for mine for use with new. Blouch dominator 1.5xtr ts.but can fit this while saving for that!

Just took some things apart in the engine bay to find a leak, so some things are missing.
I will try to get some pics when I get a chance. I think this is a great kit for what it is
worth. Would not hesistate to buy again.

has anyone else fitted one of these Turbo XS FMIC kits yet? i think its still in first place for the one ill go for when i upgrade my turbo in a few months.

I've got a 2nd core going in soon. I got into a front end collision and the turboxs bumper beam took pretty much all of the damage. The core got dented a bit but still holds boost just fine.
Anybody want a dented core/bumper beam?

Just a note to everyone. We performed the test fits for Turbo-XS. 05-06, 07-09 and JDM bumpers, plus 07-09 5EAT fitment.

We also have our own "custom" install instructions, with pix specifically for the LGT.

When you buy the kit from us, you get the instructions too.

We noted the fog lamp fitment on 05-06 long ago and included the notation in our website product description. No one else does this because no one else test fits products like we do.

Replacement parts for the FMIC kit are not available via vendors. But if you contact TurboXS directly they should be able to take care of you. Like what happened to ChefRacer.

ChefRacer 10-25-2012 07:19 PM

I guess those instructions weren't available when I got my kit....I just used the fms fmic install pics to figure mine out.

m sprank 10-25-2012 09:24 PM

If you bought from me and I did not send the instructions I sincerely apologize. I suppose I should stop hoarding them and just post the .pdf on the forum.

LegacyDan 11-10-2012 08:12 PM

anyone else fitted one of these bad boys yet? i still cant decide on this or modifying my HDI FMIC to fit
