Opened up the bumper for the FMIC
Thats what I was looking for. I ended up making a heat shield for my alternator to fix the problem with the rear bearings failing. The real test will be the next couple months as the Texas heat is starting to climb. The back of the alternator went from 300 degrees F plus to 124 degrees after a 20 min hwy drive.

i'd like to cut the bottom of the bumper out a little to open up the bottom 3 1/2 fins on the intercooler. Though I don't want it to look horrible. What did you use to finish off the edges. Your turned out great.
