Fogs with FMIC
Hey guys,

I'll be going front mounted with my turbo upgrade. I really would like to keep my fogs though. And would rather not cut my bumper if I don't have to.
Can someone point me in some good directions?
I don't need a huge IC, or piping. Just enough to flow my 18g-xt.
Here is one I've been looking at, although I'm not confident it's an entire kit due to the great price.

That sucks man. I wasn't aware you'd have to ditch the fogs with a FM. I've never looked behind the fogs to see how much they recess, but if it's a lot maybe swapping them for a more "low profile" design?.?.I couldn't go without the look of having them there either.

I like the black piping with red coupler idea btw!

I think TXS offers what I need.
I'm just wondering what others have done or have seen.

I'm curious. Why FMIC? What's wrong with TMIC?

He's going with the older layout and not the Legacy turbo layout. Which has more options for turbos....TMIC doesn't hook up as easy when you switch layouts.

You can keep your fog lights and get a crash bar/cage and have a big FMIC if you wanna spend the time and money. JE IMPORTS

Correct, also it cleans up the engine bay a bit which is a plus.
Eventually I want to shave a little bit under my area.(hood)

The goal I have set power wise is 350whp at the moment.
But we all know how it feels when that bug bites.

About having to get rid of your fogs, my buddy has the same year as us Randy, even the same color is you want to get into details.
He is running the Perrin FMIC and he still keeps his fogs

BLAZE2099 01-15-2014 03:08 PM

Good two know Nathan. Any modding needed?

Nathan21 01-15-2014 03:38 PM

Let me find out bro and I will get back to you.
Are you going the perrin where the send you a new beam?

BLAZE2099 01-15-2014 04:53 PM

If I choose Perrin, than most likely.

Nathan21 01-15-2014 06:14 PM

yeah he said he had just a little issue getting the fogs to work, but he didn't have to mod anything just gotta work at it he said

BLAZE2099 01-15-2014 08:54 PM

Sweet! If you could post a pic Nathan, that'd be great.
If it's possible.

BLAZE2099 01-18-2014 10:13 PM

I'm almost sure there's a way to make them work with any kit.
You just have to be willing to make modifications.

Anybody know of any good cheap brands?
Or have good reasons that the cheap brands are no buenos?

Looking to get good info from you older members, several in mind;)

I would recommend cutting your bumper for that FMIC.
