The Samco 3-Piece intercooler hose kit is designed to be a direct factory replacement set. Each Samco hose kit is designed to be used in a specific location, so radiator hoses, coolant hoses, and intercooler hoses are not all the same material. The intercooler hoses are designed for high pressure, high heat application and will be able to meet or exceed OEM quality.

This kit includes 3 hoses, the turbo to intercooler, intercooler to throttle body and the blow off valve return hose.

Samco y-pipe hose replaces the factory plastic unit that is inconsistent in size and is prone to breaking. By increasing the hose size for the intercooler, the car runs smoother, air flow increases, and throttle response will improve.




STi TMIC fitment

I have an 04 WRX with a vf43 and an STi TMIC, I had these on my stock intercooler and they swapped easily over to the STi intercooler Y pipe. The flexibility that they give you is phenomenal, and makes install onto the turbo easy. I would recommend this product to anyone, extremely easy to work with and high quality!

Excellent pieces and easy installation

Pipes look and feel like high quality, and were of course easy to install. Also makes the TMIC on my bugeye much easier to get on and off. I didn't notice much of a difference in sound or spool, except my BPV whoosh seems to be a little more audible at times.

I kept having issues with my y-hose blowing off my turbo. These hoses are a great upgrade and easy to put on. Wish they would have came with new clamps, however its not like they are too spendy at the store. Would definitely recommended to anyone looking to replace their stock hoses.

These hoses make it so much easier to remove and install your intercooler. I only used the y-pipe and intercooler to throttle body hoses. I can hear a small difference in the amount of air pass through. Definatley an easy mod. Wish they would have included new clamps but other than that it is a great prooduct.

I purchased this kit to replace the stock hoses on my 05 wrx, installation was very easy and they work well, though some included hose clamps would have been nice. Also the fit from the intercooler y pipe to the turbo outlet isn't quite right and takes some patience to get it to fit, but it doesn't leak, which I guess is the important part. Definitely an improvement over the stock, rock hard intercooler Y pipe.
