On the same car I'd expect the Brembos to have a slight advantage.
But then they are running a 390mm disc, where the Alcons are 365mm on the front.
Am I right I'm thinking you have Alcon's on the back off your r32 too? I will be looking into brakes soon not sure what to go for, he r35 brembros do come up qute cheap for a full set

Yes, my R32 runs the full Alcon set up.
Back and front.

Child labour.....far too underrated. If its good enough for India and the Far East then its good enough for the UK LOL


Car looking good there Richard!! N1 vents will aid cooling to intercooler but will do little or nothing for cooling the air going into the filters. Your only real options are:
1. Use some ducting to get cooler air to the filter area. Problem with this is that there aint a lot of places where you can position a duct/hose to collect the air.

2. But a headlight duct for trackdays. This would certainly be MY preferred choice and will get bucketloads of cold air EXACTLY where its needed. Problem I suspect for you would be the swapping of light-duct. TBH, it'd take less than 5 mins but it just depends on your willingness to do it.

3. Buy a water injection kit. You could just accept that the inlet air at the filters gets toasty and use water or water/meth to lower the charge air in the plenum. Has the benefit of being able to position the jet at a point where it doesnt alter the stock underbonnet look (e.g put it under the plenum) and negates the need for a HUGE intercooler and associated mounting problems.


Just my 2pworth.....

What he REALLY needs is a setup lik rons cold air intake ... But that might be taking things too far.

Spend the day at Brands Hatch with three other R32 owners and two R33 owners.
Great day.

Bit wet but great fun.

I would love a radiator that is two or three inches shorter and a nice cold air feed at the top... just an idea.

Yes, but I'm a bit odd about keeping the stockish looks.

Thanks for the input TT, didn't mean to ignore your post.
Option 1 is my preference...

This is quite simple to achieve.

I've run a 3 inch duct from the two horizontal vent below the headlight up to the underside of the filters. The only thing is you'll need to cut a hole below the filters in the side apron.

Like you I value the 'stock' look of my 32, but with the filters in place you can not see the ducting coming in.
