    Question Mishimoto vs Samco IC hose kit?

    It seems like everyone is going with the Samco kit but I wonder if there’s any reason to stay away from the Mishimoto one.

    As far as I know, Mishimoto is a reputable company, their kit is 45$ cheaper and it comes with new clamps.

    Any reason not to?

    So I ended up getting the Mishimoto kit. Since there's not a lot of info about it out there I'll post my experience.

    1st off, here's the dried up and leaking stock hose:


    Now here's what's in the box:


    The T-bolt clamps provided in the kit are a nice touch and really make for a tight seal.


    The fitment is perfect, I had no noticeable issues with the install.


    Overall I think the kit is great. Very satisfied with the result, especially since it fixed my leaks.

    The fact that it comes with quality T-bolt clamps for 45$ dollars cheaper then the Samco, it's hard to not recommend it.
