    I've been thinking about a more aggressive wing too - Junior, which wing are you thinking about?
    Those guys are using the APR GTC-500. I've also checked with Crawford, which is who makes the ones in Grand-Am. I did not call Pratt
    Neither are specific to the V. You basically give them the measurements for the supports and overall width (in my case determined by CCR).
    For all carbon fiber budget around 1500-2k

I've got a couple of potential manufacturers here, but I'm not sure whether to mock up tubing that would channel cold air to the rotors or the engine bay (or both). The idea of building a ram air inlet for the cold air intake tube is intriguing, but that would lead to an asymmetrical cooling design unless I simply ran air past a vertically-oriented air filter and then to the driver's side rotor.
    I looked into it briefly. I had enough into it with 3 sets of ducting and fabwork.

    D3's are one offs made out of sheet metal that serve to cool brakes and their oil cooler IIRC.
    For Grand-Am, Powell removed the whole assembly and added tubing just for the brakes. They simply zip tied it to the mesh. Yooper had something similar I think
    The old T2 cars had the assembly cut in half removing the fog light portion, again with tubing for the brakes.
    My setup just uses the stock openings with carbon fiber mated up.

    I think the biggest issue that will come up is that the ECU is mounted on the leftside just above the assembly and that poses the most issues for clearance with the ducting and any ram-air intake setups. Of course anything is possible with enough money but it may get cost prohibitive for some, especially losing the fog/turning signal in the process.

    If I had something built, I would replace the turn signal with a vertical hybrid LED bar or a pair of bars. I'm glad you mentioned the oil cooler--that sounds like a worthy objective for the passenger side duct.

    PM sent. I also picked up a splitter from Sean. We can compare notes when we get them mounted.

    I did a quick photoshop of the APR splitter from the ebay auction.

    Looks good. A little piece of the rubber lip is still visible but overall a great rendering.

    Thanks. I left it there on purpose actually. I wasn't sure if you guys remove that piece on your full race cars or not. For a street car it's quite beneficial from an aerodynamics/Fuel economy perspective.

    It would come off and this would mount flat, directly to the underside of the bumper.

    Mike you get that PM/email I sent?
