    Silicone IC hoses??

    Has anyone used Silicone IC hoses? The Macsboost kit has them and I am not sure about them.

    There won't be any vacuum in the intercooler plumbing. Vacuum will be behind the throttle plate.

    The piranha kits used to have silicone plumbing. I prefer mandrel bent aluminum but the silicone gets the job done.

    I flow benched the silicone ones, they were solid...They were flexible enough to allow for slap in IC alignment...I still would go with solid pipes, no swelling and it maintains maximum boost and pressure...

    Rubber will. A high grade silicone is much more resistant to damage.

    well i got him out of buying the macsboost for 750 bucks but he wants to use silicone hoses that way he has no boost leaks to worry about and i cant seem to change his mind, and since i had to chase down boost leaks like 4 or 5 times this summer.
