Will do!

Right now I am running Racing Brake slotted rotors up front, OEM out back, and Cobalt Friction XR4/2 pads. Long and sorry story of smoked pads and warped rotors at http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...294470&page=14 if you're interested in reading what ended me up with this setup, which I really like.

That does look cool! Just wondering how much air will actually be introduced into the ducts being underneath the splitter like that!

I was thinking the same thing, I feel a lot better with the front grill local especially given that a GM engineer recommended over the fog light location. I believe the air would be moving very fast under the splitter but 90 degrees to the opening whicj does not seem optimal. However I know nothing about fluid dynamIcs so who knows. I will stick with what works.

Started

Quantum kit arrived today, so I got that part installed. Once you have the calipers and rotors off it's like 5 minutes to install per side. Dead simple.

T4 brake ducts and misc parts to arrive next week, so looks like it'll be a few weekends till the rest is done.

Parts are in

Got all the hose, clamps, etc. and the ACS T4 ducts. Yellow part fits in front, unpainted/black part sandwiches the bumper from the back. Also got two small black general purpose air ducts from Racer Parts Wholesale. Will have to butcher the small ducts to get them to fit on the back of the T4 plenum, but it will work. Will give me a nice mounting point for the hose, and channel air towards it, pointing back and down at a 45 degree angle. Going to start building the back assembly and getting the light bars installed, then hoping for warmer weather so I can do the cutting and gluing in the bumper (fumes means I need to do it outdoors, and can't do it when it's too cold).

I am looking at my ZL1 cooling intake. I'll have to see if it was a waste of money for those or If I can modify them to work.

Life keeps getting in the way, but got the assembly that will fit on the back of the bumper together. Kinda went nuts with the JB Weld and it dripped everywhere, but nobody will ever see that part.

The way I have it set up, the outlet points down at an angle, so will make it easier to route the hose without a big angle coming right off the duct.

No point cutting open the bumper this weekend as temps are way below what I'd need to glue the ducts in. Maybe next weekend. For now, time to change the rotor rings...

I bet that you could cut the ZL1 channels before the dump out at the wheel well and re-route the hose in to the Quantum attachment point.

the only trick is the ZL1 ducts are rectangles.

I think you're mixed up between me (Sssoon/Pete) and him (JusticePete).

I'll post the rest of my DIY as I get around to it in the coming weeks. Too damn cold to glue anything outdoors right now, and the glue has huge noxious death warnings on it so I don't want to do it indoors
