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!

I used the 51mm version of these https://www.revotec.com/acatalog/Air-Outlet-Ducts.html
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!
