Full Brake Cooling Kit - WRX/STI (VA)


The Verus Engineering Full Brake Cooling Kit is configured in an OEM style format, with emphasis on the shortest route possible. Using the OEM fog lights as the inlet to the kit and a well-formed duct in the inner fender line this is the brake cooling kit to have. The kit comes with everything necessary for an install, including pre-cut hoses.


During the design process; we utilized in-house scan data to design the components. This resulted in a product that features a near OEM fit and finish.


The Verus brake cooling kit was designed for owners looking to maximize their brake's cooling efficiency and increase their brake's ability to do their job.


For complete compatibility, vehicles without OEM fog lights bezels will need to purchase the following items via Subaru (This includes 2018 models): -57731va390 and -57731va380

Via tuft testing and thermal image testing, it is clear that the brake cooling kit is highly effective even when used with the OEM rotors which have quite small vanes when compared to those of big brake kits.  Smaller vanes will hurt flow and cooling due to the reduced size.  With the brake cooling kit, the rotors remained much cooler directly after applying the brakes as well as after a short drive without using the brakes.  It is also apparent that at high rates of speed, the brake cooling kit does significantly more than at lower speeds.  This makes a lot of sense as the kit works by using frontal ambient air and funneling it into the center of the rotor.  At higher speeds, pressure and flow rates are greater than at low speeds.  We have heard reports back from customers tracking their cars having reduced brake fade, reduced rotor cracking, improved pad wear, and reduced brake fluid boiling.  As a result, this is a great kit to help keep brake components at an appropriate temperature during competition and/or track days.




2018+ models with 6-Pot Calipers require trimming of the backing plate.

Australian models require PN: 86631VA000 for complete compatibility. (USDM Windshield Washer Fluid Reservoir)
