REVIEWS & CUSTOMER MEDIA
Hoses seem to be of high quality. One of the bends in the lower hose was kinking a little more than I like when it was installed, but it was no big deal to trim it with an xacto-knife, cut about a 1/4" off each end. I was installing these with a Mishimoto radiator too, so being that the radiator is also thicker than stock, maybe that is why the hoses was a little longer than needed. No leaks using worm-gear hose clamps, but I can't comment on longevity yet, don't see any reason that they won't hold up. Seems pricey for 2 hoses, but no more so than other brands. All silicone hoses seem overpriced for what they are, so who knows.
Fit perfectly with no modification. Does not come with clamps purchased mishimoto t-bolt clamps with hoses found very tight fit and unable to use except for top radiator hose at radiator. Used regular hose clamps for others without issue.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Q: Silcone is permeable. Are these special? 0236king1 year agoSo my understanding is that silcone is permeable and that they allow for coolant and water to evaporate through the hoses. Are these special? Will i have to constantly check my coolant?

A: See the orange on the inside of the hoses? That is a oil/coolant liner specifically designed to allow for oil and coolant to flow through without degrading the condition of the hoses. So I guess they are special in that way? really all silicone hoses specific for coolant or oil will have the liner. Thanks!Rick C. @ RallySport Direct 1 year ago
