Focus Front Brake Ducts
 
Anyone made some? I bought everything I need, but routing is kinda troublesome. I test fit my 3'' dryer tubing where i want it to go and the steering and LCA get in the way. Luckily the tubing doesn't rip easily, so it's fine for now. Maybe 3'' is too big.

Agent 47 makes them for the Mustang:

I just can't seem to come up with a way to mount the tube on the caliper so it's pointed at the rotor. I may have to mount it to the LCA. Any ideas?

Seriously no one has done this?

I think most people mount it to the control arm and just point it in the general direction of the rotor. There's a guy on focaljet who had his mechanic make a bracket to mount the 993 air scoops to the control arm.

ah, that's a novel idea. I was thinking of actual ducting, running from the front fascia to the rear of the rotor. I may try to figure out how to do the above.

tha actually looks rather easy to do. just get some stiff plastic. or metal so it can get bent back if you hit some thing. does this actually help or just look cool? i was thinking of using some pvc and an svt front bumper with no foglights. was considering this as a ram air source too. (the foglight holes)
