I recently picked up a 2006 S40 T5 and I need help trying to modify it. <p>I am trying to go for the same look as Evolve's SEMA S40 and I am having trouble trying to put it together. On the front fender of the Evolve S40 there are fender scoops and I can't find these fenders anywhere.<p><br>What I would like to change;<br>-Front bumper<br>-side skirts<br>-rear bumper<br>-Lower it (Evolve or Heico or Eibach) Springs<br>-Wheels/ Camber Kit<br>-Front grille<br>-Evolve Exhaust with Heico dual tips( Which I need help trying to find somewhere)<p>So I started this topic because I need help trying to find out where to find the front fender scoops on the Evolve S40. When lowering the car with say Evolve Springs, do I need to change any parts of the stock suspension? Also, where can I find the dual tips from Heico to make the car look like it has a quad exhaust setup?<br>

Yeah those are custom done and odds are unless someone else has had them done and selling them you wont find a pair. Better find a guy thats goood with a cutting tool <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Im sure this isnt what you wanna hear but be original and claim your own style, dont copy another guy. Thats just me though. Good luck with your build <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

It's been done numerous times. My car is one of two or three examples. Other people went with a smaller size vent while i ended up going with Evolve's specs. Body shops are capable of this custom fab work, but you better be ready to pay to play. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a338/BigStickChris/VolvoS40T5219.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a338/BigStickChris/MWERK521.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>

Re: (Vash13)

There shouldnt be any electrical in that area that would be exposed to the water that enters thru the fender. Should just run down the inside of the fender and out the bottom. I wouldnt be terribly concerned however it does seem to rain a bit in this area <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

No sounds like they are describing the side skirts... "helps flow the front and rear diffusers together" is what i was picking up on with the description.

The quads are in the classifieds, I haven't actually posted pics or put the Heico up for sale officially...They are the oval-shaped ones. Doesn't look like you've been on here since you signed up and posted though...
