I went to Exeter Subaru last week to get some intercooler hoses. I was expecting them to have Samcos, but instead they had a brand called SFS. They told me they were from Australia, and were more rigid than the Samco hoses. For $120, I bought them.
I am very happy with them. I did not have to hack them in any way in order to get them to fit. There was some flashing on the inside of the hoses, but I trimmed it off with a small knife. I did an uppipe install at the same time I installed the hoses, so I'm not sure how much of the performance gain is due to the hoses, but the car is definitely faster now.
By the way, the hoses were red.
