I have rehosted the pictures and they should be working now. Check on the previous pages for them.

Sorry should have mentioned that. In some damaged photos you will see a white 06 that is my friends car. The photo I used to highlight where I hit my friend is an older picture of my car.

From the rear though on my friends car it does not look bad at all. It was just after I hit him he rolled into a pick up in front of him smashing the three part grill and crumpling his hood. The truck with his steel bumper had a minor kink.

Sorry to hear about the accident man, that's stinky. Was your friend already stopped? Honestly a 10-20 mph hit into a stationary object is pretty nasty.... lots of force there, you'd be surprised. I see cars at work hit the crash barrier wall at 30mph and it looks like train wreck... no joke.

Anyway I hope everything works out for you. I think it'll be pretty easy to fix actually, no worries IMHO.

p.s. this makes me all the more serious about having a buddy of mine weld up a nice thick custom front bumper beam / fmic support for me.....

I installed my overpriced txs kit i had laying around 4 ever a little bit ago. I know its pretty much the same kit but comes with the txs bypass vale. I went to get it protuned and was only able to squeeze out 17.5 psi with wastegate cycle almost maxed. When i had the top mount it was tuned for 20.5. I lost alot of power. Anyone have any ideas were to start. Could it be the crappy txs bypass valve leaking. It just doesnt feel like a leak bc it doesnt stumble. I was thinking ebcs maybe.

It sounds like you could have a boost leak somewhere. You should probably make a boost leak tester and pressurize your fmic piping. Boostcreeps.com used to have a nice article but their website seems to be down. Search around and you can find how to make a tester, it's really easy.

^ I have/had my over flow bottle mounted in the same location using the same mounting hole. Just used a bolt that I had left over from taking items out for the FMIC.

Good news! I just got back from the body shop and the insurance adjusted was there and they are paying for the FMIC kit so I will be ordering a new one today. The only thing they may not cover is the powder coating. The body shop is going to give me a call when the new bumper comes in and give me the new unpainted bumper and the old one to cut it for the kit then when I bring it back they will paint it.

Trust me it is more the body shop then the insurance company. The guy at the body shop also told them how much FMIC kits normally cost and when he saw the price of $300.00 he didn't think that was all bad.

$300.00??? Shiiiiiiiit, that was a perrin signature series as far as the insurance company was concerned.

Get $1,200 for perrin kit, buy ssac kit, profit!

Even if I did do something like this trust me I would not be talking about it on a public forum for it to come back and bit me.

well on the exterior parts alone that you mentioned your looking at about $1800

It looks like your upper radiator support is bent back on the driver side, which could have bent the side rad. support as well as the center stay support. a new left side grille is neede, maybe a new Radiator hose is needed...etc. With all that parts are atleast $2100 + $300 for the FMIC. Then the cost of labor from the body shop...I'd say a good $4500 atleast....

Hope all turns out well....
