Post 968 brake ducts for 944 turbo

I bought mine from Hendrick Porsche at 704-531-3344 for about $120 including a bracket custom made by them to fit on the 944 turbo.

How about a little more info.

I have heard about people using these, but I don't know how they are set up. Is it similar to the ones on the OG racing web site? How wide is the duct work? Where does it direct the air? Have you had a chance to test them?

Thanks
Ian

I bought a set from Diversified Cryogenics. They sent along a picture of the ducts installed. I had to trim mine a bit so they would not touch the brake rotor when you turned the wheel hard over. They seemed to be very effective at keeping the brakes cooler.

Are these the same ducts that are fitted to a 951S?
I know my car has ducts venting air to the brakes...but I'm not sure if they're the same as the 968 ducts....

thanks,
Adrial

Thumbs up

the 968 brake ducts are really just directional air foils that direct air to the brakes. They are not like the AJ brake scoops that go under car...my car is too low for those. These just bult onto the A arms....assuming you get the additional braket...and that is it. You may have to file away a little bit so they do not hit the rotor...easy job.
There are no tubes or pipes..these just bolt on and serem to work pretty well on my track car. look at my last email and call the number at Hendrick to get more info...they swear by these things...and they are pretty cheap to.
