    Question FMIC install questions

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    So I am getting ready to install my Airtec FMIC and I want to get your thoughts on the following:

    1. Approx. how much time should I set aside for the job? Assume moderate skill level.
    2. In a video I saw (click here) they are leaving a section of stock piping. Is that necessary? If so, what size blanks would you cap each end with?
    3. Looks like I should only need to trim the bumber plastic a bit (not any side support sections). Will cutting by knife be enough or I need to go buy a powered saw or something?
    4. Anything else?

    Here's the eye candy:

    Use a cutting wheel on an air tool to cut the plastic on the rad support if you have access. Youíll be there forever doing it with a saw or even longer with a knife.

    You can leave the stock hard pipe section that runs through the front of the car uncapped or measure it and maybe find some caps that will fit if youíre lucky. The hard pipe stays as itís part of something you donít take out.

    A FMIC install is a couple hours if youíve never done one.
