Q: Closest Replica Extreme Splitter & Diffuser?
 
Hello friends! Hope everyone is safe and doing ok in these tough times. I'm looking for info on what aftermarket company has the closest to factory replica front splitter and rear diffuser. I have searched the forums but looking for actual input from anyone with an aftermarket one. Im leaning towards the Sigala Designs front and rear as the best I can tell it looks very close from pictures. I personally don't like the look of the support rods I've seen on some of the other brands available. Something just looks off about it. Any tips/pics/info would be great! Also curious about mounting hardware as I don't think they come with any.. Thank you all and I appreciate this great forum!

These where copy from the Saleen parts so they’re close. I believe you came still get the Saleen rear diffuser. Here’s the thread for the HCM version

Thank you for the reply! Looks like what I'll probably end up going with. They look like good quality and a way better price then the original pieces. I just wanted something very close to that factory look. Much appreciated man!

Have you seen the plastic re-pops?

Hey Barricade, I don't believe I've seen them. I've only come across the carbon fiber ones from Sigala or the APR one... where would I find them? Thank you!

I went ahead and purchased the Sigala/HCM front splitter and rear diffuser. Ill post an update once I get them and have them on the car if anyone is interested. Thank you!

The plastic / composite versions that fit Saleen 'S-series' bodywork were offered by an enthusiast at some point from 10-15 years ago. I'm pretty sure the plastic ones are nolonger in production.

Thank you Dave. I did a lot of searching and was unable to locate anything like that. I think I'll like the carbon fiber stuff anyway! Now I just need to figure out the hardware situation!

Some of the previous replica Saleen Extreme aero kits used the OE Saleen hardware/installation kit. Depending on what you receive, you may have to duplicate the Saleen design.

It doesn't look like it comes with hardware for either... im sure I can figure something out at the hardware store!

Those were a great help thank you. I know I can get the stuff for the front at the hardware store however it looks like the rear hardware is a lot more complicated and of course the HCM diffuser doesn't supply hardware. Guess I blew it on that. Looks like most other kits do supply it. Hopefully I can find a kit for sale somewhere as it looks like a pain to try and fabricate the mounting brackets etc.. thanks for your help!

I used to own a plastic repop of both splutter and diffuser . Bought from dave at cardinale engineering. Dont know if he is reachable any longer? Hooe you can track him if you like.

Thank you! I already placed an order with Sigala so at this point I'm just trying to find a rear hardware kit. If all else fails im sure with time ill be able to make something work.

cardinale engineering
 
it might be worth a try to google or somehow locate dave, if he had some more hardware ?? I do remember the hardware that was supplied with the rear diffuser was a perfect way to attach the piece and it was quite an undertaking to attach and locate and keep that thing that way? it is right on the mufflers and pipes

We designed a bracket kit for the rear diffuser, but not enough sales to justify making it into a production piece. Let me just say its a pain in the **** part to make.

Hey Jason, thanks for the reply. I believe we spoke via email recently about the situation. (I ordered a dipstick too) I know your super busy but I would gladly pay for a hardware kit when and if you have time for it. Thanks!

Rear diffuser installation instructions

While back I installed a diffuser I bought for my 05 convt. This old instructions list of parts install info came with my diffuser. If someone wants to look at to get ideas for their own car/install, you are welcome to look at it. I did not create this or even suggest using on your own liability. But I will say, I did not have any problems with mine
