Another option is just to buy a hole saw to match your duct hose with a super long pilot drill and fab your own ducts in the lower nose. I built mine this way. Used size matched plastic work out water bottles cut to blend with the body line. Added a little mesh inside to keep out track debris. Painted black. Wasn't difficult. Just too a little courage to cut up a perfectly fine bumper cover. Below link to album with pictures - maybe not best close up but you can see the twin duct holes in them. This left me with easier removal the ranger air dam for loading on the trailer.
Brake cooling ducts was one of the reasons I went with a Cervini Stalker nose on my 87 GT.
We spin metal at work, so I had the boys make up a pair of cones with the small dia matched to my 2.5" silicone hose (bought a Ford Racing kit for the '12 CS front fascia) and the other end to slide over the foglight fascia frame. Also modded the 14" duct inlet/brake disc heat shield to fit my SN95 spindles and clear the Cobra (now Brembo) calipers.
Make sure to blow the air into the center of the disc and hub, that will increase the lifespan of your bearings and discs.
The driving lights have since been removed so you can all STFU about them now :lol:
They all seemed to work. The old plastic scoop version was worth 100 degrees of rotor temp difference compared to the rotor that wasn't running a duct after it had been damaged and then removed. I don't have data on the new setup, and I've also since switched to Raybestos ST-47 pads. I've never experienced significant fade with that combo.
At the rotor end, I've used plain high-temp hose reshaped and pinched down to blow into the center of the hat:
And backing plates like these,
Which I later modified to direct the air into the hat:
None of that backing plate #### worked, and I've since ditched them.
Now, I've even cut the hose back so that it's a few inches away from the rotor, more like air deflectors I've seen on more and more factory applications. Between that, running Bosch rotors, and the ST-47 pads, I'm cracking rotors WAY less than before

I am trying to figure out a strut tower brace for my fox but I don't think anything will fit with my Kenne Bell that has a bypass valve(which is part of the lack of room). Does anyone have one?
I am thinking about selling the blower to get a vortech so I can fit the STB.
Thanks to Mustang5L5 who posted a low mileage SPR ZK rack the other day, I embarked on the SN rack swap in my car.
I installed a low mileage 50k SPR ZK rack, reused my also new Solid Rack bushings, and bought the Maximum Motorsports swap shaft.
Prior to this, I was on the stock 4 cyl rack...
