Silicon Intake Hose???

Hey All,

Got this link the other day. I’m aware of the benefits of silicon hoses AFTER a turbo as they don’t expand as much under pressure when compared to rubber.

But I’m a little apprehensive about this product which is on the suction side between air box and turbo...

Has anyone installed one? Is it noticeable?? If not, what is everyone’s opinion???


Cheers,

Josh

    I think it was crispmods on here selling them , apparently the hose between filter and intake can collapse under heavy use , silicone one overcomes the problem

    Use the search button on here and I am sure you will find the info

  • I’ve read a lot of posts and seen advertisements for the intake hose on the 4 banger models... I’m trying to get some feedback on the V6... I’ll try to search again...

    Late to this discussion. I fitted a silicone intake hose ( thanks Crispmods) and it did exactly what is was supposed to... more instant throttle reaction. If you get the engine hot and then rev it, you can see the original one sucking in. Baldy
