Fender louver kit for the 1990-2005 Mazda Miata
- Developed through pressure and flow testing
- Designed and produced in the USA
- Decreased lift on the front of the car
- Improves brake cooling performance
Why vent your fenders?
The rotating tire creates lots of air turbulence and pressure inside your fender. That pressure equals lift! Lift is the enemy of going fast. Reducing lift has the same net effect as adding downforce to your car. Venting your fenders releases that pressure build up in the wheel well, reducing the lift in this area. Plus, Removing pressure from your fender also improves the performance of brake cooling ducts if you have them.
Includes a vinyl cut template which removes all of the guesswork from your install " just stick it on and it shows you where to cut. These louvers ship with one bend done for you, but the fins are still flat (unbent). You bend the fins when you receive them, and you re free to finish the louvers however you prefer. Ships anodized black, which serves as a perfect base for powdercoat or paint, or you can just install them as-is. Includes rubber trim to cover the cut edge, and 5/32 size rivets for installation.
You must to either trim or remove your plastic inner fender liner for these to be effective.
What you get:
- Precision waterjet aluminum louvers, anodized black
Aluminum rivet mounting hardware
Rubber trim to cover the cut edge for a clean look
Chassis specific vinyl cut template
INSTALL NOTE from Singular Motorsports: Our products are all about enabling DIYers. That said, the Miata front fenders have a 3D curve to them " and we did not want to compromise placement (and therefore performance) just to make the install easier. That makes fitting these louvers a bit more work than a louver install in a mostly flat panel like our hood louvers. Have no fear! If you ve installed our hood louvers, you ve got the ability to install these! Just note that these require some final adjusting of the overall curvature of the louvers to match the shape of the fender, which can be done by hand with a set of pliers; test fit the louver in the hole you ve cut in the fender, and with the pliers make small adjustments to the angles of either side of the louvers that mount to the fender until they match up with the curve of the fender. Put some tape on the plier jaws so you don t scratch the louver. Take it in small steps and you ll have them matching up to the fender nicely in no time.
Developed and ran on the HyperMiata! Pics below are of the prototypes on that car, installed in carbon/kevlar front fenders:
