These are some teaser pics of things that I am currently working on. First, front mount. My friend was trading in his B5 A4, and he told me that if I did the work to remove it, I could have it for no charge! A got a stock A4 IC from another buddy, and it worked out great! My plans? I was going to paint the EVOLVE logo in black on the IC, I thought that would look badass! I'm going to have to figure out how to custom fab the hosing, since i'm NOT spending $700 on a piping kit from phuz, nothing against him, I think he does great work, I just don't think that it's reasonable for me to spend that kind of money. <p>Second, S60R bumper! Picked it up last weekend, and it's currently in my door room pissing off my roomate. I just ordered the grille from a guy on this forum. I need to get it painted silver and get it fitted! <p>I am not sure of the direction I want to go though. I was thinking about getting the full S60R sport kit (have 1 winglet already), and have QUAD-EXHAUST out the rear, which would just look insane. But I'm not sure yet. I think i'm going to keep the moldings, because I like the contrast of the moldings with the S60R bumper.<p>Anyway, here are some pics. Let me hear what you guys think, and any suggestions. School is almost out for the semester, in about 2-3weeks, so that's when these huge changes are going to undergo. <p>Thanks!<p><IMG SRC="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y64/lockheed2266/IMG_0444.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y64/lockheed2266/IMG_0440.jpg" BORDER="0">

As there is another member contemplating tackling the IC piping project, I will wish you luck as well!<p>There is a reason so few have done it. In theory, it seems like it would be easy, but routing IC piping on a Volvo requires a lot of twists and turns.<p>Maybe there is a shop out there that can do it for a NON ridiculous price?

I dunno, it all looks like a big hassle to Me, maybe you would be better off just selling everything to me for cheap and saving yourself the aggravation <p>Just trying to be helpful <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

go with phuz on the piping, I have searched and it's the way to go, by the way GiRaff3 is speaking of me when he said "another member contemplating".

I'm going to take a look at all the piping and whatnot, and see what I can do. I am at school so working on my car is a pita, but i'll update you guys as the work goes along.

Exactly - its not an old school versus new school thing. Its a young guy versus old guy thing!<p>I simply dont have the time to do my own fabrication any more.

Check out salvage yards around Mass and try to find my totaled s60 form a couple months ago. You can probably use the side skirts, rear apron, and trunk spoiler.
