Default 2011 WRX w/FMS FMIC installed!! please read made custome brackets etc! w/ AEM intak

First I will say this is a serious pain in the ass, took over 8-hours to install. Cutting bumper is not easy and we got it perfect after cutting, fitting, cutting fitting, we taped off the area measured, measured, and then cut. Cut is perfect, fitment of the FMIC to the replacement crash beam was way off, we had to elongate all the holes ( alot) to get it cenetered. Pipes are not marked, but after trial error we got it. I was using the AEM intake so I had to custom make two brackets for this kit, one for the OEM overflow coolant bottle relocation to passengers side and the other for the AEM tube vibra-mount. I am going to get a little peice of 2 3/4 tubbing and silicone couplings to make it fit better by moving it deeper into the hole. Now the pics:

Custom Overflow bracket installed:

Custom AEM w/vibra-mount bracket, notice the notch by the filter, wanted to make sure it would not cut through with vibration. Paint was rushed and will be fixed, maybe fabricate a shield.:



The AEM heat shield can not be used at this time, until i mock an extended pipe for the intake, so i used the lining to line the areas where the pipes go through the body! Important because both pipes will rub with the AEM intake! I couldnt wait for the paint to dry so it looks a little molded.


I used vacuum line caps on all the exposed t-bolt clamps as they can take a pretty good chunk out of your hand. I also used the new Tomioka Racing (EDO-Performance) Silicone Throtle Body Hose, this thing is great better than the AVO in my opionion.

As mentioned before the bumper cut is a serious pain, but I think this is the best cut I have seen thus far!


Performance, is hard to say as I have not had it tuned by Akuma yet, probably going this week if I can get the tubing for the intake extended and fixed. The core reminded me very much of the IPR TMIC I had, nothing great, but nothing totally useless. I ran some IAT while driving saturday and they were much lower than my AVO TMIC was, but the build quality on the AVO is night and day!! Would I do it again? Probably not unless I was going with a cosworth or AVO FMIC, if the AVO FMIC fits anything like the AVO TMIC, it would have been done in 1/2 the time.
I will update!

I know it's an old thread but can you explain your overflow bracket further?

Well, figured i'd post here.

Firstly I am using the FMS FMIC, I decided to use the coolant bottle that came with the intercooler only to find this yesterday.

The weld on the bracket for the reservoir broke.

So I flipped the hard coolant line and drilled holes where it was mounted so I could ziptie it.


Lastly I used some sheet metal and a dremel to make some brackets, I bolted one using the hole that was for the air duct and the other one comes off of the headlight. Eventually I'll get a tig welder and make it look more professional.



Oh and I changed intakes

You bought a FMS kit LOL, that's why it took you eight hours, it's horrible fitment. Junky kit. You get what you pay for.

Really funny you say that i am 373whp on a mustang dyno and this kit cools the charge just fine with no issues. So you go spend your $1000 plus on your Perrin/AMS etc. Yes I made some adjustments and had a few issues but worth it in my opinion, thanks for yours.

Sorry, I actually bought a Turbo XS, and no issues with crash beam support when it comes to family money isn't important. Also it took 4 hours with out any directions to install. BOOM FoOL

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I just went through an FMS FMIC install on my '13 STi. Overall the install went great. I wish I had seen this thread prior to doing my own, but overall I think it went pretty smooth. I will say the wrinkle red piping looks a lot better than mine. Also the cut looks cleaner in the corners because I removed the black part across the top to expose more of the core, which also exposed the right angles deep in the bumper, but I don't really mind. I might put the black piece back at some point to see what it looks like.

If anyone is looking to see what this kit looks like on an STi check it out.
