Ford Racing Brake Duct kit 2013/14

I was curious if anyone has installed this M-2004-MBA Ford Racing Brake Duct Kit GT 2013-2014/Boss 302 2013: Ford Racing Mustang Brake Duct Kit GT 2013-2014/Boss 302 2013 on their cars. It comes stock on the Laguna Seca. I like the idea of making the lower outside grills functional. Any unusual mods that need to be done? Satisfaction level?
I was originally thinking about getting a set of M-20045-MSVT Ford Racing Brake Cooling Shields High Performance 2005-2014: M-20045-MSVT Mustang Ford Racing Brake Cooling Shields High Performance 2005-2014 | CJ Pony Parts that come stock on the 2014 GT500 but they seem barely worth the trouble.
I have the Brembo brake package.

I've installed most of the brake duct kit on my '05 GT... and yes, I do track the car.

I did the 14" Brembo upgrade a few weeks ago. I managed to get the exterior plastic for the 2011 Track Pak to fit the opening in my lower outside grill. At least on one side. Destroyed the driver's side one before I figured out a better way to make it fit. I'll finish up running the hoses when I procure a replacement.

That is a crazy expensive kit. Wish there were cheaper options out there!

There are. You just have to piece it together yourself.

I bought the Vorshlag backing plates for $170 +$20 shipping then ordered 10 ft of high temp 3" ducting from Summit Racing. All you really need is your own hose clamps and some large (15" minimum length) zip ties. Total cost to me is about $250, $80 less than the Ford Racing kit.

There have also been some issues with the hoses not fitting properly over the backing plates that Ford Racing supplies. The duct I bought slipped right over the openings on the Vorshlag plates.

I believe the Ford kit has been fixed, but I can't independently verify this

I was thinking about giving it a try and seeing how I like it. I've never taken a car around a race track before so the idea seems fun.
In any case, having simulated brake cooling duct grills seems silly to me so I simply wanted to make them functional with the optional kit. If it gets used someday for it's intended purpose all the better.
I'm guessing very few people with a 2013/14 GT or 2013 Boss have installed it. Maybe I'll give it a shot. $400 isn't that bad and it's fully functional. It's a justified accessory/add-on in my opinion.

If you track your car it will make a huge difference. The install will require you to relocate the horn in order to get clearance on the drivers side.

Thanks for the info. That's very useful and exactly what I was looking for. Out of curiosity, where does the horn go? Is drilling necessary?
