Default Best fit FMIC

Which FMIC fits the best and the most efficient for the STI? Like no mods on the bumper beam. If there is, does the kit comes with their own bumper beam. I did my search by the way with negative results. Thanks

aps comes with new beam to fit perfectly and as you know has two sizes that will cover just about any turbo you will use.

Which is just about perfect for anybody who is capping their horsepower at a step below what the stock bottom end can handle. I could be wrong though, I'm no expert... but it would be nice if somebody like APS or Perrin created a high quality FMIC for those of us who don't want to modify the bumper beam. The main problem I have with the bumper beam issue is dealing with my insurance company should I need to file a claim. If they found out that I changed the crash characteristics of a car I could be denied on my claim.

SSAutochrome. Fits 02-06, comes with a bumper beam replacement, has stainless steel piping, and is well under $500.

Damn I went to the SSAuto website and the price range now for WRX went up to 700-795. I mean is that really comparable to Perrin or TurboXS for fitting and efficiency. The price is getting pretty close.

well.. i think they actually have 2 different one. one for the wrx and one for the sti.. its like 'scooby fmic' and 'big sti fmic' or something along those lines.. i bet if you email them and beg for the $379 shipped sale price they will give it to ya.

yeah that's the price on the website... try emailing them for a better price, or get one from their ebay auctions.

Some meth/alcky kits have different mounting requirements when it comes down to nozzle placement and tank placement...when you do some alcky kits (smc) you can replace your windshield washer tank...but most fmic set ups..you have to remove the stock windshield washer tank to make room for the piping...

i have the turboxs fmic sitting in my basement. it came with a new bumper beam, bpv, and everything else you might need including a recirculating line for the bpv. not sure what the fitment will be like, but i know i can retain my fog lights/covers. and for $800 its not an arm and leg...

I believe a custom made intercooler and piping setup fits and is more efficient that any "kit" you can buy. Plus its unique and usually of higher quality
