I just pulled the old lines and matched the diameter at NOPI and bought what I needed. And a hell of a lot cheaper than $88.

let's get back on topic here, shall we?

on hose techinques:

i've met lucky personally and i've also visited his facility. i was suposed to have my pgt used as the prototype vehicle, but due to other commitments, i was unable to do so. another scpoc member, had his 94 mx6 used as the prototype for that kit. two other scpoc'ers, one with a 93 pse and an 02 wrx had their cars adorned with HT kits.

i will say that the kits are very nicely done. they come in a wide variety of colors and the kits come with the hoses in the correct lengths.

yes, the kit is a little pricey, but compared to some of the other kits and/or hoses that i've seen, i would rather pay for the quality rather than have something that looks less than perfect.

FYI,

I have several HT 2.5L Probe/MX6 SuperRed kits for sell. Cost is $69.98. Please email me if interested.

HT car-specific kits do NOT come precut. They come with 'X' amount of length of various diameter hoses for that specific car. This gives you flexibility in rerouted the hose as you see fit. Each kit comes with hose cutter and a hose splitter (to split open like wire loom). Each kit also comes with color-cooridinated tie wraps and a sticker or two. The silicone is very high grade material and will probably outlive your car. Temperature rating up to around 300 degree F. The 2.5L Probe/MX6 kit comes with a total of 40 ft of hose.

I thought it was more intune with interior styling "engine bay", than it was with performance.

I got my HT kit from Pendleton (Thanks, Bryan!). The kit came with far more hose than I needed (I still have quite a bit left over to date) to re-hose the entire engine bay. I have found that the hoses are NOT good for use on PCV tubes (they seem to ooze oil! ), but they have held up well for all vac and coolant uses.

I have friends who have had trouble with smogging their car with the colored silicone because they don't pass visual as they are not CARB approved.. or whatever. Totally ridiculous if you ask me, but regardless, keep in mind that you may have to make some concession on this matter if smogging is as stringent in your area as it is in mine (S.F. bay area, California)

EDIT: Okay, how lame am I for responding to a year old thread.. this board is unbelievably stagnant.
