Brake duct fab and install

Just completed the fabrication and installation on my 2011 V6. I have Brembo brakes and felt that I needed to cool them a little better on track day. The brake kit (installed in Oct of 2010) came with dust/heat shields for installation on the interior. I cut these, leaving a small area of heat shield to protect the steering joint boot, to expose most of the disk face. I also welded on a 3" pipe, which had to be notched a bit to clear the wheel speed sensor gear. This actually work out well since it direct the air to the disc better. I then fabricated a part to fit the driving light cavity of the front fascia. I have a base model with no driving lights so that was no problem. I had already cut out the recessed areas of the insert so making the part to fill the hole and receive another piece of 3" pipe was not a problem. I use 3" OD exhaust pipe and the silicone hose ordered from Summit Racing it it perfectly. Total cost for this project was $7.00 for the 3" pipe and $102 for the silicone hose and hose clamps, for a total of $109.00. This does require some welding, but not a problem here. Also used high temp paint on the dust shields.

Looks good. I've been planning to do this when i get my Roush bumper for my 2001. I'm not good with fabrication though so i'm probably just going to buy a kit for cheap.
