Mike: I also have a fan pack installed on the diff cooler. I had it all mounted outside under rather than inside the rear truck area for better cooling.

I do not Mike. I'm only running the FRPP finned diff cover. Paul's installed the FRPP T2R rear diff 2 years ago and no mention of needing a cooler....yet. Change fluid every 3-4 events and so far no problems. Do have a 6" rubber tube attached to the axle vent breather, mounted up high to prevent any leakage.

Thanks Roy and Randy.

Randy - sounds like that 6in extension on your vent port helps some. I'll take some pics once I get the car out and start working on it.

Roy - if this doesn't do the job, the next step is something like yours. Pumped system and fans.

I needed it because of the IRS diff has no place for the heat to go.

I would attach pictures of the install, but have not figured out how.

If you got an email I can send the two pictures.

S197 BBK upgrade to ditch the crappy OE GT floating calipers with phenolic pistons that I turn to ash.

On my second set of calipers with my TT Mustang. I brake hard and late! Pistons literally turn to ash and crumble under the heat and load.

14in GT500 rotors and calipers :)

That should do the trick. OEM can't handle the weight n speed of our pigs. Working on late braking, got some help from SI driver Dominy last season, it helped but can do better. That'll be my main objective this year. Rebuild my front calipers every 2 years. Need to do the rears, its been a while. May just be cheaper to buy new rear OEM calipers.

Agreed. I might grab the GT500 rear 13.8 rotor kit too if my axle seals need to be replaced.

You have to pull the axles to install the larger brackets. Hopefully, my axle seals are OK though. Since they did not leak with my brother driving it or any street driving, I am sure it was just the boiled super viscous fluid sneaking past them.

Not just late braking! It's also braking less! We can work on that :)
