Great article. This can be done to the S13 and S14. On S14, the hole already exist on the LCA. Not sure about the S13s. Zenki S14's were built with a similar cooling panel in place. The T/C rods have tabs (welded on) that holds the deflector. Some of the aftermarket T/C rods have tabs to hold them.

For those who can't get their hands on these Zenki S14 T/C rods, this is the next best option.

That is an interesting solution.

jimc-s13 has another homemade solution for brake cooling duct, here is the link to the thread that he talked about:

I read that awhile back, but thought for our cars itd be just as easy using the bodywork and some silicone air duct hose, itd probably be better to have the air hit the caliper....though both setups at the same time would be really nice, but overkill on anything but stock brakes.

Cool. I'm tired of having those brackets hanging off my Cusco TC rods with nothing to attach them to.

Slightly of topic, but obruT ES 41S 79', are you selling your car or trying to? I was looking at the Intense Motorsports site the other day. Just curious.

On topic, what about using light Al sheets to guide air flow instead of ducting? This would not limit air flow to the size of the piping diameter.

Anything is for sale for the right price. If someone wants to buy my car for that price, great, that means I can go for a BNR32. Doubt anyone would go for that price.

I probably could get that price if I ship my car to Taiwan... lol...
