Default Brake ducts for a BE

Hey all,
I was unhappy with the performance of the stock foglights, so I figured if I was going to yank them out, I may as well make the holes somewhat useful.

The plan is to run brake ducts...some HPDE's and track time is in the cards sometime in the future, so I may as well I guess.

Anyway; 3" exhaust pipe, had to cut and do some vice/hammering to shape it into the hole, but it worked. 3 small bolts and some cheap chicken wire painted flat black and viola.





Now to get the hose and the mount to the rotor (just going to mount some 3" pipe onto a dustshield, pointing towards the center of the rotor)...more updates to come when they do...I'm not hurry anyway

A little off topic but could you send me pics of how you have your hellas mounted? I need some inspiration for my BE Outback.

Also, what kind of speed improvements did you see from writing "GO" inside the foglight duct?

The BE needs all the help it can get, real and imagined, for performance.

That was the first time I laughed outloud at a post in a long time.

By the way, your work looks great. I don't care for the foglights mounted down low (they feel out of place. maybe if they were the same type as the grille mounted ones, thy'd look better?!?), but the ducts look amazing!

I'm excited to see how you route the cooling to the brakes. That's the challenge I was trying to figure out.

Yeah, I'm probably going to go under the bumper, behind the control arm, then up and towards the steering rack and secure it from there.

This is pretty much what I'm basing this project on:
