Iam looking for a JDM front bumper, what i gather from searching is that they are hard to find. I have the US mirage turbo bumper and it is not intercooler friendly. Any suggestions besides taking a hacksaw to my bumper?

hacksaw your bumper it will be great.
the only other bumper that will and look decent is the p10 nissan g20.
not neccesarily going to fit your intercooler desires either, but there are pics out there.
imprezza bumpers have been done but dont quite fit and dont look that good either.

yeah jdm bumpers are extremely hard to find and often can cost up to 1k.
they simply arent around anymore even in other countries.

small rumor has it there may be some reproductions being made at some point.
if it happens youll hear about it.

so yeah man hack away at that stock bumper. its pretty much all your gonna get. everybody makes it work
good luck

Take the stock bumper off and cut the massive metal support inside, you'll have plenty of room. You'll lose some safety in a front end collision though.

Now you just need a turbo lip and it'll look alright.
