I was really unimpressed with the product and the company.

Over time, both ducts have destroyed themselves. They are 3D printed in such a way that they are really brittle and it didnt take much at all to crack and then fall under the car.

Hard Motorsports claimed they would send me new ones that were less fragile, but they never sent me a thing, and I'm too busy to call them multiple times. I'm not sure a new version of the same design would get me much.

It's been awhile since I considered going back to Visa and disputing a charge, but if I had a spare hour, I would have actually done it for the first time in 10 years.

Is it for 2.5" or 3" hose? I think the biggest issue here is hose routing. A 2.5" hose makes a big difference in ease of routing.

The hard motor sport backing plates look like they should do the job. The rest of the kit is absolute garbage. Wish I had read the reviews on here before I bought it.

This thread popped back up and reminded me. I ended up purchasing a set of those IG ones a couple months ago and they were super easy to install and a quality product. Would recommend

Took a little adjusting of the spacers they sent with the kit, but really no issue at all!

Interesting! I wonder if it will fit a Brembo GT kit.
