    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.

    Water4fire,
    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 ?

    What ski? Are you talking about a 08 ski with external intercooler or the older models with stock intercooler in manifold?

    As far as the exhaust, it will not be a problem running stock setup.

    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.
