Thank you very much for the post. I just needed quick info on how much of which ID I needed to order to replace my ****ty hoses and the table made it super easy and the pictures will help out if I get confused along the way. Seriously, nicely done, thank you.

Hypothetically, if you didn't have a check valve in your brake booster hose, what would happen? No brakes, vacuum leak, both?

You want there to always be a built up supply of vacuum in hte booster. The check valve keeps from "leaking" vacuum, i.e. getting positive pressure.



<looks at date> Man it's dead in here lately.

Are these cars picky about the vacuum hose diameter?
Does it have to be exact or just close?

I just did these hose installs today. Boy, the joy of working for hours hunched over your engine. The sizes were fine for my 2007. I did feel that the new hoses for the top radiator reservoir, and just about all the hoses, were a bit smaller in diameter compared to what was removed. They fit, just the inside diameter has been made smaller.

I found the rats nest to be different in the 2007, but everything else was as expexted. I installed an Iag Aos today as well, which eliminated some of the hoses.

Just finished this up last week via the mishimoto hose kit and some bulk 4/6mm Turbosmart Hoses. Not the easiest fix, bu (had to cut most of the smaller hoses off), but after I accidentally broke one petrified/formerly rubber vacuum line, I found myself replacing them all. Fit on the 92x Aero was fine.

This is a life saver. I told a friendly staff earlier I was concerned I wouldn't remember where all the hoses went. I took the car apart in November after i bought it and haven't really touched it since.

you got the coolant overflow hose at 19", can you say where it terminates inside the overflow? does it go all the way to the bottom of the overflow tank?

Thanks for the excellent write-up. I appreciate the time and effort involved in documenting this so thoroughly.

For other readers that are looking for an alternate source of silicone hose, I located a reputable manufacturer, Flex Technologies siliconehose.com that had slightly better pricing. I bought some additional sizes for other projects so that worked out better for me.

On Flex's website that you suggested, I'm seeing 4mm, 6mm, but not 9mm or 12mm.

Did you with 10mm and 13mm?

Someone mentioned a tight fit and I wanna order the correct stuff.

Also, is there an Auto Parts Store that you guys are aware of that stocks the silicone hoses?

Hello. I am in the process of doing this as well. I am replacing all the rubber hoses with silicon hoses. This thread has been very helpful. The only thing I would like to point out is that my tuner warned me against using non reinforced silicon hoses for the cooling system, and it would also be preferable to use reinforced hoses for the vacuum system in my opinion. Better safe than sorry.

How do you get the check valve into the new hose? My brake booster hose is cracked.

With some heat, rubbing alcohol, and a socket, I did get it.

It's probably too late but I used a Allen wrench that was the same size as the check valve. I was able to push it in far enough. A 3/8th extension would probably work too.

OP how have the hoses held up since you have installed them? Anyone else who has run this kit have any issues? I havenít heard of them before and as others mentioned earlier, the silicone isnít reinforced like other companies (Samco, Mishimoto, etc..) which is somewhat of a concern. Iím looking to replace all my hoses and I really wanted to get the Samco Ancillary hose kit to match my Samco intercooler hose kit, but it seems like itís just about impossible to get these days, not to mention near $300 + shipping if I were to special order it and it isnít even as complete as the HSPI Motorsports kit, although they are very well known and race proven. Iím almost tempted to order all oem hoses, but they arenít exactly cheap. Any input would be nice!
