Bumper was not even close to fitting without modifying it. Not sure if its because it was mounted incorrectly to the bumper support or what. But after some modifications to th bumper and lower Valence... every thing turned out nice.... whatcha think?

Methinks it's not mounted right because I've seen it fit just fine behind a stock bumper with a 337/20th lip...

there's no way thats mounted right. it shoudnt stick out that far in a million years. im not a big fan of the way it looks, almost like its falling out of the car. just my .02

yeah...that definitely isn't mounted right. the bottom part shouldn't angle out as much as it does. if i was you i'd pull the bumper off and double check everything.
my bumper needed some trimming to get the apr fmic to fit but it looks great. definintely doesn't have that much of an angle to it as yours.

couple of questions/comments
1. did u paint the inside of the lower vents because when i take mine off....they are more green then yellow...
2. great custom work, bumper came out nice...
3....HOWEVER, knowing that the EVO can fit to the stock bumper without touching the lip/bumper, kinda bothers me...the way its now, looks like its about to fall off
...great work though

I personally don't care for the APR intercoolers. I feel ATP, ABD and just about everyone else out there makes a better looking intercooler.
