I don't think you'll have to worry about snow build up on the FMIC unless your out driving in the deep stuff like we just had. I've only had to dig out the front of my car like twice. Kris drives his car like its a 4x4. You should have seen him in his Prelude. Post the pic.

The MRT set up is really nice but requires some altering to the front bumper cross member. I think it is the cleanest yet.

As far as looks go, I would agree with you guys that the cobb looks the nicest, but it does not perform as well as some others and you cannot keep your fog lights, and I like having them.

I get snow build up in the front, but only up on hillside where I live. I want to make a grill that will span that gap if anyone has any ideas I would love to listen.

The cleanest meaning you get to keep the fogs. The APS/COBB is nice but I think the XS engineering and the AVO setups perform better.

You can make a grill out of the stuff from Home Depot. I want to make grills too for the area below the license plate and a grill insert.

Cool

I am not worried about the snow as much as all the huge ass bugs that will be stuck on it and baked. Can't forget the huge rock that get flung up from all the mofo's driving SUV's and motorhomes. Maybe if I had a 2nd vehicle to take out of town like a truck or gremlin.

Would you like to get together and make this grill idea you are talking about. What is the supply cost?

Where can I find a diagram of how a subaru is layed out, might look into getting a core from spearco with endtanks and outlets welded on. Buy some mandrel 2.25 or 2.5" bends from summit and some Stainless piping and make you own fmic. A 29x10x3 from spearco is 750.00. You could make the piping for 100 yourself, The you could markey kit among the Mafia.

If we could design it to keep the fogs, then I"m down. Here goes the tax return.
