Yep, you'll definitely need to cut the bumper. That and attaching the clamps that came with it (they were kind of short) was actually the hardest parts. The rest is easy . . . assuming you lift your car on jacks of course!

Don't be too conservative with the cutting or it will have a tendency to pull your bumper down. Mine did it and it created bigger gaps with the light housing. I never took the time to correct it. I should...

You can look at my sig for more pics. This was and still is one of my favorite mods. Really helped taking advantage of the tune!

For comparison:






AND take the opportunity to clean things up behind there!

The Bell is pretty easy to install. the trimming is the toughest part like TG said.
Also, with the bumper off it is a PERFECT time to do the ForceFed horn relocation.

Took it for a spin? noticed any difference?
It feels as though there is more low end power. I just want to get a good DP now so I can really open up the potential of this engine.

I don't have a site or anything nor do I stock any products. Eric and I will fab up anything that people want long as we got a car to rig it up on and there's interest. Eric does production items himself for the Evo crowd but I just do the Volvo stuff for fun and if others end up wanting what we fab for my car haha.

Hey , Kyle
How Large is the Opening going into the - Bell - as Compared to say a Custom Build IC , :)

Like - 12.5 lbs - How about a Made Up Unit What's the Weight on something like that ?
