Just thought id say 'hi'<br>picked up my shiney new S40 over the weekend, and ive been having a blast driving it thus far! <p>Glad i stumbled upon swedespeed. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I have been reading a little bit and got to thinking: any modded T5s in the DFW area? im not much for keeping things stock <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> and wouldnt mind getting some ideas<br>im also curious about the turbo - is it a VVT/VGT/VNT (all the same thing, as you guys no doubt already know) or is just a TINY fixed blade to spool the way it does?<br>

WELCOME to swedespeed. i'm also not really the type of guy that wants to keep things stock. i have a red s40 t5 and wanna get some stuff done to it. <p>probably the first thing i'm doing is the BSR ecu tuning unit. what would you want to do to it?

Re: another new guy here (CH)

Davidklaw started an S40 V50 location registry thing. Too bad it hasn't been noticed and got pushed all the way into the archive.<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=48359" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=48359</A><p>I would like to see more people register.<p>BTW, I live in the Valley Ranch area.<br>

I'll have to check that link out. I live out near Rockwall, but am about to go back to school next week. I have a S40 with a steadily growing list of mods (sway bar and BSR stg 1 about to go on) and live in the DFW area. Thats what you were lookin for right <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

thanks for the welcome! <p>as far as mods go, not really sure what im looking for yet. More to get a feel of whats available, and from whom.<br>Recently ive been much more involved in the off road/high power diesel scene.....but in the past ive had some American muscle (WS6 TA, etc), a little bit of German performance(tuned 3series' that were made to look the fool by my friends highly tuned M3 lol), and of course - my other Volvo (just about the only vehicle ive ever kept stock)!<p>Heck, ill even take a recommendation of a good tint shop at this point. Im used to 5% so having none is a little disconcerting – not to mention HOT.<p>volvoNB - thats not far from me at all! if youre up for it id love to see your car sometime(meet at a starbucks? im addicted <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emlove.gif" BORDER="0"> ). among other things - im considering springs so seeing your stance would sure help out!<br>
