wish i could help you. i bought a replacement set quite a long time ago thru a group purchase from sean hyland. i've never used it but i've been told by others the ducting itself may be too short.

thanks Kevin !!

thats the one place I found it --
I was just curious why more places don't carry it if it is so highly recommended?

several have recommended buying it --

but we would consider another if anybody has any other suggestions?

I set up Mirage Motorsports as one of our vendors but I believe they have gone out of business.
Their website is down and Dennis said no one is answering the phones there.

They had a pretty good kit for the money.

To cheap to buy one for the 95, so I made one. Pretty easy to do, Bonny.

The first duct kit I bought was from Sean Hyland. The parts were flimsy and didn't last long, even though they were quite expensive. Then I bought the Mirage Motorsports kit about 5 months ago and have been very pleased with them. It's a shame if they have gone out of business.

I was thinking that same thing. In the next couple of months I was going to do my front brakes, and I was going to throw these on at the same time for "future endeavors". Hope its only temporary or something.
