    Maybe in youuuuuuur case.....

    I have the EVO undertray bolted on, all the fender liners, brake ducts,....etc. Pulling my front bumper is well and truly a pain in the butt.

      Do you have any sound clips of the Spintech exhaust? How would you describe it? I've wondered how it would sound on a 4-cylinder application.

      Sorry for the thread-jack. Please post any response in a new thread.

          Ironhead is that hose flexible? I'm having trouble finding a 2 ply silicone 5" hose. I see the Samco wire reinforced but would rather do without the wire. You happen to remember your source?

          Thanks

            Gonna bump this up too as I'm looking for this exact tubing as I can't find the 121 ID tubing.

              I didn't see the question back in Feb when it was asked.

              I get a lot of inquires about that orange hose, so I'll do my best.... Yes, it is very flexible. Only 1/8" or so wall thickness. Like many of you, I felt the Samco hose was much too thick and rigid for the application.

              Anyway, the hose is silicone, and it is a "charge air hose" for a diesel truck....like a Kenworth or whatever. It is 5" diameter. But, I don't remember where I got it. It was one of those late night internet searches, and I just found it and ordered it from some trucking supplier. IMHO it is perfect for the job....sturdy yet very light and flexible. If you google terms like "charge air hose" and "silicone" I would think you could track the same part down. It was fairly expensive....like $60 IIRC.

              Sorry I don't remember the specifics further.

                    I search for quite some time till I found something. This is 3 ply smooth silicone hose, it worked great and is very flexable.

                      Aaron,
                      The hose I was looking for was the 127mm ID hose Ironhead found not the 121mm hose.

                        Thread revival time!

                        I believe the hose Ironhead is using came from here. It was also mentioned in post #15 of the thread "Samco Hose for CF airbox".

                          No, that is definitely different. I have some of that silicon air hose and it is much, much lighter weight than the hose I used on my car. That's not to say it wouldn't work though.

                          I stumbled upon this a while back:

                          http://www.hps-siliconehoses.com/5-i...rbo-127mm.html

                          This is very similar to the hose I used. The only difference I can see is that this hose has a shiny finish and mine is a dull matt finish. But I remember when I bought mine that it came with those metal rings on it to contain turbo pressure. I just took them off because my application obviously did not need them.
