Where are you lovely bunch buying your silicone hoses from! I’m looking for both sets (black) air and water.
Orignal poster asked the same question in other thread - Marketplace/Parts wanted, and got multiple replys.
In the end, these are/were recommended (both threads):WATER:
Flexeo kit - 11 pcs - € 249 inc VAT
Viper performance - 10 pcs - gbp 157 ex VAT
Midlands servicing - 12 pcs - gbp 160 ?? VATBOOST / AIR
Flexeo kit - 6 pcs - € 189 inc VAT
Merlin motorsport - Samco 6 pcs - € 193 ex VAT
* Flexeo and Viper also sell only "COHD"* only Flexeo does inlet "doughnuts - € 59 inc VAT for 5pcs kit."* only Flexeo does oil hoses kit (2pcs) and sells separately various other hoses."
I'm in the same position as original poster, and it seems Flexeo is the best option.My questions are:1. are there any notable differences in quality?2. how important are differences in number of pieces of water hoses (10 vs. 11 vs. 12)
3. how durable/ permanent are silicone hoses - eg. is CHOD replacement "fit and forget" or should it be replaced in 5 years
4. is there any feedback on longevity regarding color - eg. do RED hoses degrade more due to heating / heat soak of the red colored surfaces?
