Looks like a universal e-bay fmic kit cleanly installed on a car.
I like that there are not many connectors in the systen but I do not like the chopped up bumper beam.

I think the hose will feed the airbox which is pretty cool...

Which clamps on which hose? you have to remember,these cars,while stock have very little psi.If i were running a fully built motor and a ton of boost ida done the T-clamps.still might,i found a place for 3 bucks a peice. it all holds nicely with the mbc turned up to a little over half bar.

Snorkus delete,ran 4inch flex duct to the passenger fog delete to feed the stock airbox with a k&n drop in filter.

Yes he can make one or more,i think hed do a discount for more than one kit at a time and with out installation its going to be cheaper.

why not just get the gc8 impreza fmic kit. cheaper and fitment is nearly perfect.

looks like he pretty much went straight down from the inside of the headlights or the width of the grill

There's a YouTube video that shows this process - of going behind the headlight. Done by a guy in NZ, I think it was.

U don't have to cut the whole front reinforcement, I just cut the inside of it to fit the intercooler core, granted the front facing part of the beam is only about 3mm thick, but some is better then none. But having a plasma cuter helps though lol
