997 Front Brake Ducts: Good Idea?

Recommended Posts

Greetings all-

 

Noticing that my driver-side front brake duct is taking a beating, I thought I would look at replacing it and the 997 versions kept popping up.  Since it clips to the lower suspension arm, fitment should not be an issue.  Any reason not to spend the 10 bucks for both sides?  It appears that it provides a little more ground clearance than the 996 GT3 ducts too...

Hi Oscar....  I can't speak to the fitment of 997 GT3 brake ducts to a 996 GT3, but, I can confirm that in 60K of driving the 6GT3 that the ducts are definitely a consumable item.  I have used the 996 stock ducts and the 996 GT3 Cup ducts which extend downward a bit more.  All have been scraped and hit and some have exited the car.  I now use zip ties to hold them in place which can tear away.
