call up and ask. i think they said it should work w/o bumper modification but i'm a bit skeptical. i think they just say that to sell the i/c but didn't actually install one on passat themselves.

but aside from the ones already listed, apr also sells one.

would that work for a b5.5 with no modifications?

damn thanks for the heads up dan
According to them:

# Designed to fit the OEM front bumper without any cutting.
# Does not require the removal of the secondary air pump and does not require cutting of the cross over pipe.
but that fmic is pretty close to the size of mine, and mine required bumper rail cutting, and the piping got in the way of the smog pump.

The B5.5 will require moving the air pump and the horns. There is enough room to mount the intercooler w/o cutting the "bumper", but you will have to cut the core support.

It sounds like there is a race to see who can ge the B5.5 kit to market first. 3 companies are working on them.
