Fitting my FMIC

Ok, I`ve been fitting my FMIC today Seems to take a fair while to do lol
Took everything off first:

Then I trial fitted my 22b bumper that I still haven`t prepped lol

Fitted the FMIC:

Got myself a new Induction kit so fitted that too:

Then I found some old heating duct in my grandad`s workshop so I claimed that as a cold air feed

Nice job, and a great bit of improve there!

How much of a pain was it to do yourself?

its actually not all that bad, just quite time consuming. Spent 10 hours on it yesterday and should finish it today lol. Was amazed at how much effort it is to get the front bumper off tbh though, especially with the number plate mounting bracket having some ridiculous anti theft bolts on it. Not that I undid them lol, A dremel is a very handy tool to have.

Bearing in mind I`m not mechanical genius I would say most should be able to fit it. You do have to hit the front panel in a few places with a hammer to bend it out of the way but once you`ve done that its pretty straightforward

I`m holding off on the number plate for now as I`m reregistering it for over here some point next month. Then I`ll look into either getting a vinyl numberplate for the leading edge of the bonnet or a square numberplate to go over one of the fog covers

Re: Fitting my FMIC

Hi just a quick one. Do you have to make holes in the side panels for the pipework to feed through? Ive just bought my kit, waiting for new rad to arrive before fitting the fmic? Looks a really nice motor. Regards Gareth
