    Easiest way to modify my front bumper?

    Ok, well after getting the car redyno'd my buddy told me that my FMIC is not gettting cool air to it and it had nothing but swirling warm air infront of it. My question would be what is the best route to go? I know getting a 99 front end would be the easiest, but I have a custom paint job and it would be almost impossible to match it.
    This is what it looks like now...

    here is a photoshop i did...of basically removing just the cross bar or...

    and here is one where im sure i will have to cut a grip out of the front end


    and by cutting the cross member will it make the lip flimsy?

    I would cut the middle bar out and on the top I assume that under the top lip the bumper continues straight till the intercooler. I would cut the non visible part of that so airflow could travel up to the top of the core. As well as fitting ducting around the cooler.

    Fein multimaster or Rockwell sonic tool with a ceramic cutoff attachment. Or you could use a dremel or rotozip but I wouldn't reccomend either of those without a respirator and some plastic on the walls to catch the dust you kick up. I love my fein tool for just that reason... no dust. I used both the rockwell and multimaster on mine Mike. You can borrow either one if you'd like bro.

    +1 Good ducting is going to make a big difference so you don't have to cut up the bumper.
