Another question for folks re: brake ducts. I've been trying to find some 2.5inch bulkhead flanges, but the only ones I can find are ABS plastic (which will only work up to about 80°C) - does anyone know where some metal ones can be purchased from? All the HVAC ones I've seen seem to have too large a diameter.

Are you talking about an inlet to go into the bumper?? A flange for the disc heatshield?

Sorry for lack of clarity, I was looking for a flange for the disc heat / dust shield!

As for the inlets, S2Bray, are you manufacturing them or is your model for 3D printing available for use or purchase?

flanders, thank you so much, I've spent the past few days putting various combinations of keywords into search boxes and failing to find anything like that!

Tried to fit is as close to the center as possible

I'm not yet - but I hope to be soon. Design needs a small optimisation to get a perfect fit. I'll keep you posted

On my first S2k I ran the same set up as Flanders - all aluminium 51mm flanges, silicone hosing, did the 'ring and Brands very well. I am pretty much ready to do the same with the current S2k, with rears this time too.
S2Bray - interested to see your design - I have the use of a 3d Printer too - and have been researching this - a few guys on the US forum have a couple of designs that seem to work although the plastic costs seem to be high.
Good reading on the motoiq sites!

Had the high flow cat fitted and it sounds great with the UK mod, also have an option on a 'beer money' after market system to make it properly raucous!

They reckon the pistons are very rusty and agree a definite pull to the left so have suggested replacing calipers.
Just wondering the best route as I may as well get all 4, maybe from simon at Hendy, would prefer not to have the car off the road for too long waiting for a re-furb but is there a huge difference in price?
Also not sure if there's anyone over here that can do a refurb...

New stuff is v expensive, probably about 2.5 times the cost of a refurb. Most places will do a swap service, so they send you newly refurbed items and you then send on the old ones once you've swapped them out.

If you want yours back, then it's usually a few days.

I used budweg, they do a deal where they send you refurbed items and when you send yours back you get part of the cost back.

I must admit I never bothered sending my old ones back though

The only downer is they are plated rather than painted so look a bit crap finish wise.. I painted mine.
