Removing Fog Lights w/Viggen bumpers?

How do you get the fog lights out with the Viggen bumpers?

I can't seem to figure a way to get to the front side fastener. Any tricks to it? Does the bumper need to come off?

If just removing the passenger side fog the top bolt can be accessed by removing tow plug from the front bumper. Just did this for viggen ram intake....

For cooling of course.

To test functionality, I actually extended the outside air temp sensor and have it zip-tied just below the air filter. Run the car hard to get everything hot then note the temperature change with speed.

Average slow speed temp after heating up was 108-110, when at speed (55+) the ram air cools it down to the low 80s....not bad for $142, especially in summer.

No butt dyno here, actual numbers. Needless to say the car is staying in the garage this weekend with these Colorado floods...

It's your terminology, "ram air". Should be called sucking air as the pumping ability of the turbo far exceeds the speed at which air would be rammed into your intake.
Those floods look brutal.
