Default Ancillary Hose Kit for track use

Hey guys, I'm vary slowly putting this track project together and want to see what others are using. Since I am overhauling the whole engine bay, I am planning to replace all of the hoses under the hood. What is a good ancillary house kit for track use? I see Samco, Mishimoto, HPS, OEM, anything else I missed? Are there a kit the replaces coolant breather hoses?

OEM. Hard to beat a fresh new set of factory hoses straight from Subaru with proper clamps.

Anecdotally, I have used cheap silicone hose kits from ebay that are $40-$50 and have the vast amount replacement pieces for the engine bay. Even from the higher end kits, some hoses may not be molded perfectly but I don't really have any complaints about what I've used. Comes with crappy clamps too.

For reference, I'm talking about kits like this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/115478010923

Pretty much the same here, been running an ebay silicone hose setup for my coolant lines for the past 4 years. Never had an issue with leaking or collapsing. I don't track but I know a few others with the same setup who do track and have not had issues.

Silicone-only hoses are porous and allow coolant to evaporate out of the system over time.

My vote is OEM rubber for molded coolant hoses, but if you source oil-safe/coolant-retaining silicone, I might use that for custom routings or straight-ish sections of coolant or breather systems.

Like the StartLite Racing Hose by EATON? I guess that is the right way of doing things. I'll have to think about if i want to make custom hoses. Might be a bit overkill but it sure will make it solid.

No idea, but it can't imagine flatirontunning would sell them without. I would have to ask them

Nya, I'm not going to trust those hoses on the track. This is for a dedicated track car being pushed to its limits. I'm sure they are fine for a DD or a couple drag races, but not for what im building. If I ever get it built HAHA
