Brake Duct Cooling Kit

Recommended Posts

I am trying to source a Brake Duct Cooking Kit like what should have shipped in the trunk of my "new to me" GT500KR CSM #0562.   The previous owner purchased it from a dealer in Florida in 2010, but swears he never seen it.  My car is missing the OEM Tire Inflator Kit also, I that is going to be much easier to replace than the brake duct cooling kit.  Ha Ha

I believe I am looking for Ford Racing Part No. M-2004-A, right?  

I see a Brake Duct Cooking Kit listed on ebay, but the box is beat all to heck and weathered.  Any ideas on where best to source this kit before it becomes impossible to find?

Thanks for any help.

Harold,

I can assure you that this KR left Shelby American with the brake duct kit in the trunk, what happened to the kit after the car reached the dealership is anyone's guess but keep in mind that brake duct kits, floor mats, owners manual kits were frequently stolen out of the cars by dealership personnel and put up for sale on ebay.

About all you can do is try an internet search for FRPP part # M-2004-A to see if there are any sitting on a shelf somewhere. Finding a complete set in a mint box may just well be impossible but on the other hand I'm sure there must be some kits still in the original owners hands although they sold/traded the car years ago and forgot to give the new owner this kit.

Apologies for hijacking this thread, but what came in the owners manual that was unique to the KR?  Mine (I’m 3rd owner) had what appeared to be all the Mustang books, plus 2 supplements. Is for the GT500 and another one for the KR. 

 

Back to the cooling kit, they pop up on eBay from time to time.

The 2008-09 KR's had a 20 page owners manual supplement placed in the glove box next to the shrink wrapped GT500 owners manual portfolio placed in the glove box by Ford.

I'm not sure if SPP still has these KR supplements but a phone call to them will get you an answer. I've also seen these KR supplements on eBay before.

On the side note of this topic.  Has anyone installed their kit on their KR's or just kept them in the box?

Welcome Harold to the Team Shelby family.  I installed an original brake cooling kit on my 2008 KR about 6 months ago, I found it on Ebay in a mint box that a previous KR owner was selling.  I still have the original sealed box with cooling kit that came with my KR and not willing to give it up at this time.  I will be on the lookout for another cooling kit and let you know when I find one!

I sourced a never opened kit from E-Bay a couple of months ago.  The box has never been opened, but I probably will someday.  I am conflicted about trying to safeguard my baby, or flogging it at track days.  HaHa

I just put the FRPP number in the Google search and came up with this one? Is this what you are looking for?

https://www.evoperform.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=430

and more expensive, but here....

https://www.fordracingbyspeedshopdirect.com/Ford_Racing_Brake_Cooling_Kit_p/m-2004-a.htm

and then one on eBay priced in between the two linked above.....

^^^Appears to be a nice original FRPP box?

It was one of the very first things I did when I picked up my KR new. After that, I painted the bare rear axle.
