No bumper cutting is required. Just the shroud in front of the radiator and behind the bumper support.

They are essentially the same design/dimension, except BT is 4" thick core, and has 3" inlets. Whereas CXRacing has 3.5" thick core and 2.5" inlets like stock inlets.

ok so basically all the same parts connecting parts since BT's Inlets are 3" and made to mate with the stock charge piping which is 2.5" and CXracing is 2.5" inlets and i have a 3" charge pipe?

Im just starting to get a little confused....

The way my car is right now is Stock IC and 3" chargepipe with BOV going to the throttle body

so using this:

It's totally solid.

Here's all the parts I used for piping:

2 pieces Aluminiumtube coupler 2,5": http://www.do88.se/p/aluminium-pipes...oupler-25.html

Silicone hose 90 degree 2,5": http://www.do88.se/p/silicone-hoses/...degree-25.html

Silicone hose 45 degree 2,5 - 3": http://www.do88.se/p/silicone-hoses/...gree-25-3.html

Silicone hose 2,5 - 3": http://www.do88.se/p/silicone-hoses/...3-63-76mm.html

20 cm of Silicone hose 2,5": http://www.do88.se/p/silicone-hoses/...e-25-63mm.html

+ some hose clamps.

No rocket science...
should i still use 2 pieces Aluminium tube coupler 2.5"? or should i get 3"

my main issue is that, using that list. i dont know which part correspond to which side of the IC. Since one side of my piping is stock (passenger side) and one side is upgraded (intake side to throttle body which is 3")

see what i mean? lol i appreciate your help..i have been looking back in forth in this thread to try to make heads or tails of it.

trying to make heads and tail is starting to get more confusing. if the outlets on BT FMIC is 4", how come you only need 3" couplers? how will that fit on the endtank outlets??
