    sorry to revive this old thread but, how did you manage to install without cutting the bumper? did you have issues fitting the silicone elbows and clearance when installing the bumper? i mean i understand you have to cut the plastic piece beneath the IC but i dont want to cut anything else. I noticed in the install video tutorial that he had to cut also both plastic pieces on both sides. i would like to cut as less as possible.

    The J-line is askew. Meaning the inlet & outlet are not centered. If you flip the IC they will be closer into the car and clear most of the small plastic around the hoses. However, I also used 4" HPS cuplers and not the OEM as the don't reach quite right along with Cobb IC pipes. I cut the 2" off the top to expose more of the IC; quite worth it IMO as the car looks even more aggressive.

    It looks good but I'd I have to go back to stock I would need a new bumper. It looks good tho. So if I get the jline there is a way to install without cutting the bumper?

    Yes...you'll still need to make a few small cuts for clearance. However, you'll have about 40% of the surface area hidden.
