Well 5 days before the Heidts Performance Challenge and I finished the brake ducts. It's been a busy weekend. Here's what the final product looks like. I will probably make some tweaks after it's track tested, but for now it will have to do.

Some changes to my original design. I didn't use the exhaust couplers. Instead I bought aluminum bulkhead connectors and riveted them to the dust shield. After thinking about it, trying to weld galvanized steel to painted steel probably wasn't the smartest thing.

If I were doing this again, I would probably go with 2 inch duct instead of 2-1/2. It would have helped with the clearance between the control arms and with routing.

I used a velcro like tape to grab the duct. I felt this would grip the duct better than ty-wraps that would eventually dig into the duct. I used ty-wraps to secure the velcro to the control arms. Using velcro will also help me make some last minutes changes to the duct routing if necessary without having to cut off the ty-wraps.

I have a 1LE, and so I only have dust shields on the bottom half of the rotors. Here are some pics of what I made in case anyone else is in the same boat, or wants to completely remove their dust shields. I used all stainless so I don't have to worry about rust or painting.

Clever reusing the bolt on the wheel sensor and ball joint.

Its not a bolt on system, but this is the route I am most likely going.

GREAT WORK!

Looks good guys,i would shoot a little black paint inside your intake hose to blend it in to the grill so it isn't as noticable

We've been running the Quantum set up for sometime now and I think it is a very well engineered solution. The piece it lacks however is the attachment point to the grille area...









Heat Shield for the Tie Rods




This is the best solution I've found but we're working on the termination point at the lower grille as well as adapters for the ZL1 ducts. Please feel free to call, email or PM us anytime with questions.

Kind regards,
