    Exhaust Silicone couplings

    Sending Race Tech a box to mod. Being in Northern Ontario CA, I see that everyone buys from Silicone Hose for there couplings. I'm sure i could find a local supplier of mine that can get something. I know i need 4 ply, but what kind of temps are seen? Want to make sure the temp rating is well about so a melt and hull fill don't happen!!!

    anything turbo rated is fine. It will usually be nomex reinforced or some other very high temp material

    BTW get something flexible. The stiff couplers like what riva uses and what's in the store here are a total pain in the marble sack to get on if there's even a slight angle leading to the outlet.

    I bought some couplings from a company called Silicone Intakes that are really flexible. They have some that withstand pretty high temps. They carry hose aluminum tubing stainless tubing, pretty much any intake or exhaust system you want to build

    I was looking at these ones in the UK and was wondering the same thing as you.

    http://www.apmotorstore.co.uk/silico...r-076-067.html

    Temps stated are as follows:

    Operating temperature range of -60 to +180C. Increased thickness for special applications and higher temperatures (250C).

    Is this enough??
