What intercooler kit do you have? You will definetly have to take the lower plastics off. Depending on the IC routing you will have to trim some of the plastic off the lower pan cover to go around the pipes as they route up into the engine bay. The front plastic under piece you will probably just leave off.
MKIV.com has a link or 2 on FMIC install.

Make life easier on yourself. Do it right, Just take the bumper off . In fact, You might as well leave it off til the project is done.
Youll need the extra room to work. And it wont be the only time youll need to get under there.
Trust me , I know that 1st time taking the bumper off is a bitch. I took close to 2 hours the first time. But now it takes 10 minutes..
-Good luck

there are like 4 clips under the rubber molding going across top of bumper. There are 2 10mm nuts on upper edge of the bumper to fender mount points. one is to side of the headlight (HL must be removed) and the other needs to be accessed from the wheel well. Assuming you get those on each side, and the clips across the top, and remove the underbody panel. it pops right off.

If you cant get the bumper off id suggest going on mkiv.com and taking a good look at the Manual. Once you located all the screws holding it on then get to it. First step would be to remove your headlights.
