BMW E36 Brake Duct Backing Plates

4.10 LBS

Product Description

You asked for an affordable alternative, here they are! now has affordable front brake duct brackets made specifically for your E36 BMW (including M3 and 328). These brackets are TIG welded by our aerospace machinists then powder coated with a thick layer of glossy black to protect them from the elements. Our E36 brake duct brackets have half of the air inlet blocked off to prevent cold air from being blown onto the brake rotor surface. Cooling air is routed directly into the center of the rotor and out of the rotor vanes. This method prevents abrupt cooling of the rotor surface, which causes premature cracking.

These brackets come 2 to a set and can be ordered with 2 hose clamps as well as the orange silicone SCAT tubing.  

This mod does NOT require the hub to be removed. It does require removal of the inner shroud by cutting with tin snips. The inner shroud is not used after installation of these brackets.

Fits All BMW E36 (including M3 and 328)

  1. Excellent product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2022

    I bought the backing duct plates for a Backdraft 427 Cobra replica that I own. My car is based on the E36 suspension so they bolted right up! Nice to have functional front brake cooling. Great craftsmanship and love the powdercoat.

  2. E36 Brake ducts great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2018

    The ducts were delivered promptly along with the silicone hose. The guys at Gruven were a big help over the phone when I had some questions on installation. The ducts fit perfectly on my 1995 M3 track car. Can't wait to hit the track!

  3. E36 brake ducts and hoses 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2016

    I received the brake ducts withiin days of the order. They are of quality manufacture and fit perfectly on the spindle carrier of my E36 M3. The hose shipment was delayed, but finally arrived and this to was of good manufacture. The finished product is fully functional and I'm quite happy with product and the price.

    If you hard on the brake pedal like I am. Do your brakes a favor and add a cooling system. If you don't mind cutting holes in your front bumper these ducts are good quality at a great price.
