I need some quality brake ducts, a buddy bought some that are so thin they collapsed from having the hose clamped on.

Where did you get your good ones? Pics?

I use the plastic ones and they are pretty thin and weak. They don't come with the plastic cut out where the hose attaches so the trick is to leave a lip when you're trimming the plastic. That lip gives quite a bit of strength to resist collapsing when you clamp on the hose. This is the only image I have of mine mounted in the air dam and it doesn't show what I'm talking about so hopefully it makes sense.
