For my 2002 I had to cut into the back of the light housing but it's behind the bulb so you can't see it. Not that it matters to me since I have fog covers.
with which particular FMIC though?

i just ordered my 18G and EWG, so i'm now officially in the market for a front mount, but ive been searching ebay, and the SSAC deal no longer seems ot be going on? (SSAC.com says $795 for their XSPower FMIC now?!)

theres another kit, even cheaper, but the core looks TINY.
( http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/FMIC-...58356631QQrdZ1 )

$260 shipped is rather tempting though.

what FMIC are you guys running to keep your fogs?

Read the thread........

If you go back even like 2 or 3 pages there's discussion of the typhoon and even pictures of it being used.

Just a heads up. Later model 05's have the same fuel lines as the 06's. ust got done installing mine completely. You just need to take out the fuel line bracket to allow them to move and ba a little more flexible so the pipe will fit. And yes, I also kept my fog lights. It's all about being patient and adjusting the pipes

im in the middle of my 30r kit being installed right now and I bought a whole bunch of crap from www.siliconeintakes.com awhile ago. I was hoping to be able to make a CAI with this intercooler kit, coupled with the perrin 30r. Needless to say it has be a ride. I have come to the conclusion that without some serious fabrication, it cannot be done...using the 3" piping that I wanted to. As you can see in the pictures, this is a 3" intake. It may have been possible with smaller piping, but I didn't want to get into any maf turbulence issues. I wanted to stuff the piping down the hole in the fender and put the filter there....but some MAJOR cutting to the fender would be in order. I don't have time to do that..nor do I really want to. I ended up with this, mostly to move the maf sensor farther from the turbo, as some of you have possibly heard about the perrin kit and their intermittant idling problems. I wont sacrifice driveability. Also shown is how I connected the turbo to the intecooler hotside. It was very simple, I bought a 2.5 90* elbow, a 2.5" s.s joiner, and used the rest of the perrin stuff that my kit came with.

Ok.. Good news to anyone that doesnt want to wait for the auction. I Emailed SS Autochrome, and asked if I could just outright buy the FMIC for the 350shipped which is what they are on ebay without a reserve. They said they would be happy to. SO.. Just a lil FYI, that way u dont have to go thru ebay..

So has anyone tried swapping the piping so that the whole system flows the opposite way? It looks to be a superior set-up over the way ssac has them run.

Yeah someone has tried it. The issue with that is the BOV bung is then on the wrong side and is blowing hot air back into the intake. If you use a vented BOV then it's no big issue but if you are piping it back into the intake you will need to move your bung to the cold side.
