Almost there, but not quite. Still having issues with the cold side pipes. I'm keeping my fogs at all costs, so I'll find a way to make it fit

Where is it hitting? On the drivers side i had to cut the bottom piping an inch on both sides to allow the bumper to even fit without any problems. My fog mounts are cut to hell though.

It's hard to tell. It's definitely an issue with the piping and the fog mounts. I've gotten it pretty close but you have to force the bumper on the last 1/2" or so.

Don't rush an if you have to make fine adjustments. If you rush you'll cut to much or cause additional damage. Cutting my prodrive front was the hardest thing I had to do. Lol. I've cut a lot more bumpers prior but I constantly did test fits just to get it right

Well, I got my Turbo XS replica fmic to fit without cutting any of the fog holes. So it has to be possible to fit the real thing too.

It's strange. I've adjusted the piping sooo many times that I can't think of what else it could be unless perhaps it's the piping itself.

Kevin, the ramps would actually help a **** ton.

These pictures suck, but after working 7 days a week for a while I was starting to wonder if I would ever get a chance to get stuff installed.

I have the TurboXS FMiC and it required a good bit of trimming in the middle section of the bumper and doesn't fit properly on the sides due to me wanting to keep my fogs.

Wo whom ever cut the piping, would you mind taking a quick picture?

I didn't have to cut anything. The guy who cut my bumper did have to do a lot of re-adjusting to get the piping to fit though.

why not? 3000k is golden yellow.

which is beneficial by 1. allows me to see better in rainy and low visible conditions due to it being a different color temp from my headlights 2. because I hate the color output of the stock bulbs. I do have them properly pointed to make them functional and it does not provide additional glare or blind on coming traffic 3. when there is Fog or Vog it also helps for both.

This is the drivers side pipe that had to be cut on mine. I took it off and had to cut off about half and inch on both ends to make it fit.

Not sure If this is sarcasm, but this does not make sense. Our fog lights throw the light everywhere, that is why you cant aim them properly once you put hid in them. And also this is why they are weak and should stay weak.

The real purpose of fogs is when you have to drive in zero visibility conditions at like 10 mph, to light up the side of the road a little bit and basically keep the car out of the ditch even If you dont see what is in front.

Long story short, fogs are not a place where you should put high lumen bulbs, at all.

Sorry this is kind of off topic but at least i tried to make in an informative off topic

So you haven't seen the fog light output by themself? Yes they are called Fog lights however the light pattern is very flat and wide. They do not scatter light everywhere like aftermarket fog kits do. There are 4 bolts on your fog lights, 3 are mounting points and the other is an adjustment screw. You can adjust your beam up and down.

I know I run the fogs all the time. Good and bad weather. The extra light is really nice at night. I use some 55w yellow fog bulbs. They are bright and do not reflect as much as a white bulb.

Here is a pic of OEM bugeye headlighs with a pnp hid kit:



Heres a pic of my JDM sti headlights retrofitted with s2k projectors, 4300k bulbs, oem infinity dot legal ballasts:



Heres an older pic of my car, 55w fogs, EDIT: This is actually factory lights with Hella bulbs. You can kinda see the fog's cutoff in the pic.



You can also see it in this pic. Just look closely.
