Ok guys finally got some test fitting done on my brake cooling ducts.

Key features:
-.090 6061 aluminum
-utilizes all 3 factory mounting bolts
-takes place of factory dust shield
-can still be used and functional with larger rotors
-2" hole to accept 2" flame retardant cooling hose
-tig welded to assure strength
-corrosion resistant
-perfect fit every time

Final revision was made yesterday should be getting some ready to mount and test next week. Let's start making a list of members that are interested

Interested in knowing duct routing and air inlet location. Still looks early in the development stages, but am glad someone has stepped up to the task. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Looking more closely, I guess you're ready to reveal soon. Interested!

It would be better to duct the air into the hub and let the rotor vanes tumble the airflow to both sides of the rotor. Dumping cool air only on one face of the the rotor can cause temperature differentials which can cause cracks. Pushing the air into the hubs is something which I have done with very good results.

Yes very good point ... I'm going that route trying to get the whole closest to the center of the rotor. It's hard to cause of the small diameter rotor haha ...
The current whole isn't centered with the face of the rotor it's more toward the center

Couple of installed shots... Note the hole is going to be moved .250 straight up and .250 over for maximum tube clearance. Fitment is perfect

Thanks for working on this, some of us really need cooler brakes!

PM sent with some ideas to help improve the effect.

Have a great evening and weekend:)

Installed on my car... For any DIY guys this should be a no brainier. I'm still having fun with ducting ideas. Currently running them on the sides of the j line with fit great and seems to be the most high pressure area at the moment. In one pic you notice I have a awesome idea of putting them on the driver and passenger side air duct but unfortunately my duct hose was to short. I think that would be a great spot if I could make some kinda divider to both inlets. Thanks
