Has anyone installed these samco silicon hoses? I really think that there are more important ones and others but whats the general feedback. I really want to know if anyone has put one on and seen any difference.

Supposedly these hoses and a catless up-pipe netted a 15-20HP (can't remember for sure) gain on a AWD dyno. I have no idea how much was due to the hoses though. If you consider the theory in design, which is to create a less turbulent flow through the intercooler, I can see how it would increase overall efficiency.

Is there a site where this can be purchased? And how much?

Thanks

Pretty easy mod. While you have the ic out, take a little time w/ a Dremel and knife edge the ic elbows.

I did have to trim the Samco Y hose about 3/4" on each end to get them to lay right w/o any kink.

As a bonus it seems my gas mileage has improved a touch:) .
