My APS R Series FMIC fits perfectly in the space below the black part of the bumper fascia. Radiator cooling isn't an issue. The the top opening is un inhibitted by the FMIC.

I went to an autoshow today and saw a few turbo deisel truck that had and oil cooler in front of 80% of the FMIC that was in front of 100% of the A/C exchanger which was in front of the radiator. Teh FMIC was nearly the same size as the radiator. That made the radiator sit behind 3 other heat exhangers. A big truck vs. the STi is not really apples-to-apples, but it's an interesting thing that I saw.

If you do road courses often, I think the TMIC and huge scoop will do fine against heat soak since you don't have to stop. I think the big scoop would look funny without the wing.
