if you install the ducting so it's a relaxed installation you'll have more than enough to do one car... not two. if it's installed with a stretched, tight fitting installation you might squeak two cars.

i'd recommend installing it in a comfortable, std installation and save the extra length in case a repair is needed... don't try to get two installations with the supplied length, it's just a tad short for two cars...

Got the tubing but my car didn't have the duct installed when I bought it so now I'm not sure where it exactly goes. There are two holes for the duct on the heater unit. The first hole on the Left side I'm sure it connects to the middle of the dash, but where does the hole on the right side go? The center of the Dash as well? I've only got one end piece for the ducting does anybody have a second end piece if I need one?
