Here is how I boxed mine:
Opened up the bumper for the FMIC
The sides are flared out very slightly.
Mine is not welded to the IC because it's made of 1"x1/8" steel.
It's 3 edges: the sides and bottom and uses the crash foam as the top edge of the box.
Dropped the IAT temps 10 degrees in the 1/4 mile on my little turbo.
Post #10 are the IAT results.
Post #21 are the pics.

Sorry to thread hijack.

If you look around Tom's IC, you will see what he's talking about.

Everything minus the core itself will be powdercoated black. Before it was done similar to this and when the grill is put in it looks way more low key.
