Default looking for fmic instructions

I bought a fmic for my 04 wrx but it didn't come with any instructions, so i donít know how any of the piping fit. Itís a Hybrid Fmic by the way. If any one can email a copy of theirs no mater what brand that would be great. Or if you know any links to installs that would help as well.

its actually a pretty str8 forward install.


Take topmount off
take grill out
take bumper off
take factory bumper beam off
put new bumper beam on
bolt fmic to it
configure the piping ( I just went by pics of other ppl who had it installed it)
hook the bov/bpv up.
cut bumper so the fmic core will fit
put bumper back on
put grill back on

bam, you're done

btw it's better to do a FMIC install with someone helping out. I helped my cousin cause sometimes cutting of the bumper is a pain.

I wasn't even being rude... I was just making the OP aware. Don't you have anything better to do?

This is how it looks installed

Have you seen that FMIC?

tasq is right. It's a joke and looks like crap. This is how they get away from cutting the bumper supports. I hate to be the guy hitting a pothole with that thing hanging so low.

It's ok, just alot of over sensitive emo kids here... I'm sure there are a few of them cutting themselves right now.

Yeah, the kit does look bad. just about every post I see from you, you're insulting something or someone. But lets just forget about it. heh

Front lip would probably help with the look, but WRX-ERROR is right that it would be easy to mess it up on pot holes or speed bumps.
