    I'm looking into buying one myself. To begin with I thought the kit was over priced untill i looked into things abit more, not bad value for money & they offer a discount to AOC members.

    It says you'll need to trim the inside of the bumers, thats fine, but what about Aircon? and moving the radiator back? do you still need to do that?

    Guys the car in the pics on the ad is mine, the guys at tx made the fmic kit on it to ensure perfect fit after i enquired so there is no issues with fitting it with regards to rubbing on a\c etc.

    If you have a coupe bumper the fog light surrounds and possibly the inner slats need trimming a bit but on a gsi bumper its a straight fit. Im not 100% on an sri-t one however.

    Give the guys a call and mention me or aoc and they will sort you out, theyr'e a good bunch

    ive fitted the kit to my coupe.

    you need to remove the foglights, cut the slats off, move the battery tray back, drill out the cross member for the intercooler to bolt onto, alter the wiring for the twin fans and move the radiator back. its not hard if you do all this first rather than trial and error with the front bumper.

    The SRI-T Bumper is supposed to have more space behind it than the GSI.. If the GSI fits with little effort then the SRI-T should have no issue also

    yes, i was actually looking at vauxtillidie's car, their does seem to be a fair bit of space behind their, id still reccommend moving the radiator back as its quite easy to do.

    is it the Sri-T bumper you have frosty?

    the intercoolers great, ive yet to have it remapped to get its real gains tho.

    what bhp are you aiming for?
