Perrin IC Hoses
I installed Perrin IC hoses the other week. Here's my quick review:
Look: Beefy reinforced IC hoses. Look good. Only a minimal amount of flashing left on the inside of one corner. Not really flashing, just more of a sharp edge. I have some pics here. Comes with nice hose clamps for the Y-hose.
Fit/Installation: Fit is pretty good. I seemed like the turbo outlet hose didn't quite line up correctly, but since the hose itself is pretty flexible, I was able to get everything to line up with a bit of elbow grease. Getting the IC on/off is a bit of a PITA. I didn't install the BOV hose.
Results: My engine is almost stock, only other mod is Vishnu pulley. I noticed a bit more spool-up with the IC hoses and low gears seem to pull harder. People say that IC hoses are good for a 5-10hp, I'd believe it. It seems most noticable cruising on the freeway where the throttle feels more responsive/sensitive.
