Cooling with BBK

I'm going to build a full on track / race car. Is anyone using a cooling / duct kit with a bbk? If so, which is recommended? Thanks

I was searching and there was a kit that had a hard line to ensure clearance. Anything like that out there?

Also were you at Barber recently with HOD?

No wasn't at Barber. will be at Road Atlanta June 11-12.

The hard line that you are thinking of I don't think ever really made it to production on any large scale.

Clearance really is not an issue on track as you are not at full steering lock.

The added expense of the Hard Lines system I don't think is worth it as if you rub through a hose they are not very expensive.

I wonder if the Vorsteiner GTS-V lip would give better clearance since the intakes and the piping are directed differently

You can do the same thing with brake ducting. There's a wire winding in the neoprene. I've flattened the hose in a section in my E46 to improve clearance which is pretty much what the carbon tube does.

Nothing gorilla tape can't fix either.
