    Installed FMS Front Mount

    Sorry for the lack of photos, but I finally got around to installing my FMS Front Mount on my '11. It was a pain in the butt. It took a good amount of time, I hated cutting my bumper, etc. But the end result looks great. Bought if from Craig at FastTuningProducts, he went above and beyond the "Call of Duty" in order to get me this part when it was backordered. All in all, for the price, this was worth the headache of install. Now if I can just get to the dyno for a protune sooner than later.

    Honestly, it was a PITA. The pipes are hard to route, both physically and figuring out which pipe goes where. Lots of the couplers are in awkward spots and hard to tighten. The crash beam had to be re-drilled to fit the core. The Bumper cutting was nerve racking, etc. It was definitely a 4/5 on the "install" scale. and thanks wreckingball

    I don't mind to offer online advice, man. Anything I can do to help, but if you don't have a need to go w/ a front mount ( Like a turbo swap ) then youre better off buying a quality TMIC

    Do you have a before dyno? If you don't, it's not worth the money to run it on a dyno.

    I think he is talking about getting a dyno pro-tune.
