I like what I'm reading! This is a great initiative.
Those original CWR ducts (and the pics) are mine. They are currently on my car. I'm good friends with Pete Hahn and we have both struggled with front brake ducting for many MANY years.
I ran dedicated front ducting using the horrendous POS NTech welded backing plates for a few years with hose to a front inlet. On the street they are unuseable as tires will wear through the hose at the first full lock turn.
Pete cobbled together a bandaid with the vette ducting piece which does work.

For the benefit of everyone watching here's was my track setup (worked VERY well on the track but not at all on the street): Triple-R: Dedicated brake ducting

Your 3D printed original backing plate looks great - keep developing it.
To summarize to make an effect "kit" you need the backing plate, the "vette" style hard tube to get by the sway bar (THIS is the critical piece IMHO), and the inlets to fit whatever bumper style you have.

Keep going!!!

I'm interested too thank you. A 3 bolt pattern for 99 Spec would be my specific interest. Thank you for putting this together.
