This tutorial will be similar to the one I did for 02/03's-http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/showthread.php?t=62506
What you'll need:
a set of oe fog surrounds
3' of brake duct- you don't need high temp ducting, regular will do- either 2 or 2.5"
2 duct reducers either 3->2.5" or 3-> 2"
2 plastic "connectors" found at the hardware store- don't really know what their application is (they were threaded on the inside)- anything that will fit into the duct end and then into the wheel well
four appropriate size hose clamps
The reducers will fit into the oe fog surround, you'll have to do a little bit of filing/dremeling for them to fit, squeeze the reducer and it will go in it will be snug

view from bottom- I drilled a small hole and used a plastic fastner (same as used on the rubber intercooler seal) to help keep it in
You'll need to remove the fog lamps, I've elected to leave mine out (never used them as they were covered)- you could remove them for track days easy enough and then put them back in
Use ~ 18" of your ducting and fastener the "connector" to it w/ a hose clamp
I angled mine to help direct the air
Use a hole saw on a drill (wheels need to be removed)- either 2 or 2.5" depending on the ducting you went w/- you may have to doa little filing w/ a round file depending on the "connector" you have chosen
You can see from the pic where this is located when you look at your wheel well- this keeps well out of the tires way
from the front push the "connector" end into the hole- should look something like this:
Now all you have to do is connect the other end to your reducer
snap the surround in and voila
Day to day driving I use the STi covers- leaving the ducting in place, track day just unsnap the cover and attach the ducting to your oe surround w/ reducer- two minutes and functional brake ducts

Nice work, nice tutorial. I just can't bring myself to remove my JDM fogs...

It'd still work if a guy wanted to run his fogs day to day, you'd just have to take them out for track days (they wouldn't get busted that way too)- would only take a couple of minutes to remove themOriginally Posted by coolblue04
