Default Cost of replacing all vacuum lines?

Is there a kit i can buy for this or is it recommended to just buy bulk line, cut and replace.

I just feel like i should replace all lines to eliminate vacuum line issues and rule out the lines as future problems. I dont really get the carb cleaner spray and pray procedure.

I was actually thinking about doing this too. I was considering silicone lines though. I was planning on buying bulk (at least +1 foot extra) and cutting to fit.

Problem is the tubes are different diameter and some have complicated bends. If you guys do it write a DIY for the community.

as long as the hoses are the right diameter and are good quality I can't see why it wouldn't work fine.

Some hoses you really need the oem bend. A straight hose may not work as some bends are 90 degrees. It can be done with straight autozone vacuum hoses, but it is not optimal as you risk completely cutting of air flow

thank you for all of the responses, so the general consensus is that i can replac most with bulk, and the obvious bendy's I should OEM or test with air pressure

you can use bulk hose from autozone to replace all of your vacuum hoses. as long as the hose diamter is similar and the fittings & restrictor pill are the same size you will have the same functionality as the oem. that being said, i dont see why anybody would ever need to change their vacuum hoses unless they are switching to a 3-port solenoid and/or ewg setup.

Old hoses :-\

That's why there's the ancillary hose kits. Why not do the same for your vacuum lines? Old rotten hard rubber sucks, sexy smooth silicone doesn't!

Simply google "WRX Ancillary Hose Kit" and you will find a silicone hose kit that will replace some of the main hoses under the hood. If your car is higher mileage, I would definitely suggest replacing the vacuum lines that connect your boost control solenoid, wastegate and turbo.

When I replaced my boost control solenoid on my 35,000 mile '05 for a 3-port, nearly all of the vacuum lines cracked/fell apart in my hands.

i dont think the ancillary hose kit does most of the vacuum lines.

when i did the 7 piece samco on my 02 there were still a lot of hoses left behind.. and that kit didn't fit all that well either.. maybe its gotten better.

The hose techniques kit plus an ancillary hose kit should cover MOST the engine.

Try this place http://www.siliconeintakes.com/index...1506ac976db72a. I bought about 10' of silicone vacuum line to redo a different car and it works great. It's really pliable and bends very easily, even more so than the rubber 1/8" vacuum line you can get at a parts store if you're lucky enough to find it.

I've changed all my hoses to this kit here.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mishimoto-Si...item35bed8c282

It's great, easy to install, I also suggest going to the store and just buying new clips to go along with it as well. Personally I replaced all the pinch style clips with the screw on ones.

You need vacuum lines feeding wastegate, boost control solenoid, and "pill"

You might want to look into what worm drive (screw on) clamps do to silicone hoses 3dbello. And nice bump on a 3 year thread.
