CDC makes a brake cooling kit now that doesn't require moving or deleting the tank. You have to have their chin spoiler and altogether you're around $500.

The Vorshlag 3" kit fit fine on my 13 GT. Just trim some of the black inner fender wells for the duct routing. Trimming holes in the black honeycomb grill insert and cutting holes behind that insert for the inlet duct plates. No movement of the washer fluid tank.

Yeah, that kit is for the Brembo cars just like all the other kits I've found so far, that's why I want to try to mock up my own. Hopefully now that I've got most of the work around the house done I can get the car up on the lift and start tinkering.

Yes, for a 2008 with the little 12.4" brakes. Well, about 90% of a kit.

Welded my own nozzles onto the backing plates (they're bigger than they look in the picture below), fit intake openings, and ran some hose up to point at the nozzles without attaching to them. Didn't think the flex tubing would survive the flexing from either steering or suspension movement. Works well enough with street tires and track speeds achievable at the 300-ish crank HP level anyway (125-ish on the tracks I've driven, tops).

It's been through a couple of 4-off's, hence the dents, misalignment & repairs and the crack/hole that I didn't catch before I took these pictures a few minutes ago. Vorshlag's 3" kit is going to be replacing all of this once the GT500 brakes go on (and before the next track day).

Thanks for the pics Norm. I'm starting to get caught up with the work around the house so I'll be able to put the car up on the lift and see what I have to work with.
