Stock IC Hoses O.K. for 3Rude ?
I'm planning to upgrade SC this winter to 3Rude. Due to noise & cost concerns I want to keep stock IC & exhaust hoses. Does anyone know if stock IC hoses can take 15 - 18 lbs boost ?

Yes, They will, but IMO you will feel a little less umpth off the line from the hose swelling (Ballooning) On a hard accelleration.

Thanks for info. I should probably also change out hose clamps for T bolt style.
Has anyone experienced a failure of the stock IC hoses other than them slipping off due to loose OEM clamps ?

Ski is an 08 RXP-X. So it has an external IC. I was also thinking I could stainless steel hose braid or wrap with stainless steel wire to reduce expansion.
