GT3 Brake duct alignment

Recommended Posts

I'm buying a GT3 Mk2 from a Porsche dealer and when I looked underneath the car at my inspection, the right hand side (from the front) brake air flow duct looked at a different angle to the left hand side one. Can these come loose or should they be different? Any help would be great as if there is a problem I'll get it sorted before pick-up!

I have the Motorsport ducts, which are larger than the stock ones, but they are positioned the same on each side, which I would think should be the case for the stock units.

The right one is more horizontal to the eye (almost running from wheel to wheel) whereas the left one looks properly fitted. I'll check it tomorrow when I drop off my trade-in!

Hi Steve.... Congrats on getting a Mk II GT3!! The front brake ducts (called 'spoilers' in the parts listings) hook, snap, and clip on to the lower front trailing arms. They do project downward into the air stream to direct some onto the front rotors. As low as they are (and the motorsports/cup versions do project a bit lower) they are vulnerable to scraping the ground. I consider them a consumable item along with the front splitter/spoiler. Depending on which alignment rack/system you may use, you may also have to remove/replace the brake ducts so that the front wheel heads can "see" each other under the front end while on the rack. They are a pain to R&R, but, it's part of the fun.

Thanks for that! I asked the Porsche dealer to check before I pick up on Tuesday!

Should be fine but I presumed these may be expendable :)
