Default Flexible hose / silicone hose ( Recirc )

So, I'm not really a fan of BoV's since they make my car run like ass. Therefore, since my FMIC has a v-band flange for the bov/bpv I recently purchased a Tial Alpha Q. Let me start off by saying this thing looks like a space ship and like something I would imagine NASA would come up with.

I need to find some kind of hose I can use for recirculating this thing.

The Alpha Q discharge port is 2"
My APS Inlet Recirc fitting is 1.25" I believe


My problem is I cannot find anywhere that will sell me plain old flexable hose, its either radiator hose, that crappy ribbed stuff that just crimps up on itself, or very flimsy clear hose I can find at home depot.

Does anyone know where I can get either silicone hose pieces ( I tried Tial, but they haven't gotten back to me. Apparently they are swamped which is understandable ) light rubber hose that will be flexable but not crimp, or anything you can think of that would work. I plan on using a 2"-1.25" reducer and re-using part of my stock recirc hose to complete the transition.





I know you project gurus have some super secret place that you can get any hose in the universe, share the wealth!

You could try checking out some hoses from a pool store. They often have thicker walled hoses of different sizes.

I'm a little confused though...You have a fmic...shouldn't you be tuned to run with the bov?

Just as running a bov on an untuned engine = no good, the same can be said for recirculating on an engine that is tuned for atmospheric vent. you'll be running lean.

I will check out a pool store and see what options they have, I'm also going to stop by a local performance parts place and see if they can hook me up with a 180 degree 2" silicone piece just so I can clear my firewall without crimping this crappy flex hose I have, and then possibly just use that to finish the job. I might be taking some pics and will post em if anyones interested.


Just because I run a FMIC doesn't mean I can't recirculate... I'm not tuned for the BoV, and don't want to be, hence why I need to come up with a recirculating hose option asap!

Just to reiterate:

FMIC Came with a 50mm Tial BOV

I bought a Tial Alpha Q 50mm Recirculating BPV, and will be using it for the tune.

Man-Mall's like Fleet Farm carry an assortment of hoses, just not all in the same part of the store.
