I always assumed RUF made it and was available at their website?
Never tried to source it though...anyone know more about this bumper?

Sorry no rear shots though it's pretty plain cept for the slots even along the built in valence.

Wadda you think of this one JMA-RUF?




Yeah, that looks the part!

Personally, I'm not sure if I want to stick with the boxy looking bumpers though... I think I prefer the smoother, rounder bumpers to update the look a little.

I also like this front bumper, to compliment the rounder rear one... and have the smoother side rockers with the brake ducts.

I like your rear end, Brian (on your car that is)... If that had the functional air vents, it'd be perfect for my application. I think the original picture I posted in the first post is the closest thing I can find.

Your turbos are side-mounts, I don't see how bumper holes will help you much.
Consider cutting a slot on the top of the stock bumper under the rear reflector like the one on my bumper. It sheds a LOT of heat.

True, Brian. However, the two mufflers will sit parallel to the bumper and I figure the air vents will shed heat eminated from the dual 12" muffler cans.

This is my version.
I just slotted the rear bumper by drilling, cutting and filing.
It works well for one turbo. No reason why the same approach couldn't be applied to more areas of the bumper. I also removed the rubber seal between the top of bumper and body to give an opening at least 1cm high all across the rear.





When I was planning this, I photo-shopped a few options first. I was considering ditching the boobs as well. How much you cut out might also depend on the aesthetics of what is exposed I guess ...

Cool - I was actually contemplating having one exhaust tip coming out on each side of the number plates, IN the bumper itself, as opposed to under the number plates. What do you guys think of that idea?

Thanks for confirming RennSport930, that bumper comes with the rear corner exhaust exits!
The big thing for me was to loose the rear facing tits

Think I will Swiss cheese my OEM bumper

Showing the "junk in your trunk" looks best if you tuck the muffler up behind the bumper and single exit out the passenger's side with a matching waste gate exit out the driver's side. I have a picture of that setup on my website. Very clean look as all you see is the bottom of the turbo, the turbo oil tank and bottom of the engine.
