Default Brake Cooling Duct Kit for 2014 Sport

Guys,
Looking for a Brake Cooling Duct kit for a 2014 Base with Sport Brakes...but appears the Stillen product only supports 2009 - 2012. Advise...or known kits available? I am not skilled enough to self fabricate.

Also, It appears that the entire stock dust cover is removed with duct cooling...is that correct?

It's probably the only years they actually tested it out on. It should "probably fit" but it's just stillen covering their asses. The stock dust covers are removed.

99% sure it'll fit at the rotor end, because there weren't any changes there in later years that would block the plates.

You'll need to figure out a way to mount them to the front though. The front ducts won't fit because the bumper design changed.

The kit will still work, you will need to re drill the front mounts to accommodate the slightly different bolt pattern

Any DIY write-ups/pictures on how to connect to the newer 2014+ stock fascia?

On my 2016 Sport I had to fab up some mounting plates out of aluminum. I then centered everything, drilled a few holes in the plates and mounted the supplied bracket to my plate. The supplied bracket did not fit as you can see from the first picture. Forgot to take pics before painting...

Stillen bracket placed on opening, mounting holes do not line up;

My plate placed on the opening;

Both brackets placed on the opening;

Front side just for ref;

Mounted, pic from the rear;

Hopefully this will give you a few ideas, not sure what a 14 Sport bumper looks like compared to a 16.

Good luck!

That bracket looks like it was made for a different bumper. Wondering if Nissan changed a few things and Stillen didn't know about it.

Thanks for the pictures Flyfish!
I may have to hire someone to help fabricate the new fascia intake. I wish Stillen would step up support 2013 and newer. I called stillen and got a disappointing response...in essence they said "go figure it our yourself".
