Silicone intercooler hoses made in 6 ply reinforced silicone with fluorine added for optimum oil resistance. These hoses are also wire reinforced. Both hot and cold side with a shortened hot side delivering an increase in throttle response and torque. 

The factory hoses are prone to splitting and these are the perfect replacement and will be extremely strong. Supplied with constant tension clamps. 

Featuring a 2 year full replacement warranty and available in a variety of colours. These hoses have been pressure tested with huge results, made in the same factory as leading truck and race car hoses. Built to ISO9001 certification and available in your choice of colour. 

One of the biggest questions, when people consider upgrading a vehicles standard rubber hoses, is will it really make a difference.

Considering what the benefits and drawbacks are for both options can make you better informed as to whether you should upgrade.

Why are silicone hoses better than rubber?

1. Flexibility and resilience

Silicone hoses benefit from superior flexibility compared to rubber. They maintain this flexibility over their lifespan unlike rubber hoses. This reduces the risk that your hoses will split, harden, or become dry rotted.

2. Lifespan

Silicone hoses last practically forever and might possibly outlast your car. Because they have such a long lifespan, they can average out to a lower cost per km compared to rubber hoses, even though their upfront cost is higher. 

3. Operating Temperature Range

One of the main reasons people change to silicone is the operating temperature, it’s all about thermodynamics. The idea of a silicone hose is that you replace the standard hose so it doesn’t expand and get hot under pressure. Silicone hoses are capable of carrying fluids at much higher temperatures than rubber. If you’re building a racing vehicle or adding a turbocharger to your engine, silicone is the way to go.

4. Noise and vibration control

Silicone has a good ability to dampen sounds and vibrations, keeping a quiet and stable profile. Rubber has been known to be a source of noise due to the friction between the rubber and the mating surface.

5. Aesthetics

One of the most obvious advantages of upgrading hoses under the bonnet is how they look. The colours available in silicone hose ranges mean they are often a keen favourite with car enthusiasts who like show their engine bays. The vibrant blue and red hoses can really set off an engine. But if you’re not into colourful interiors silicone hoses are also available in black.
