Who is running Silicone Hoses in their R?






Any feedback from those with different brands of silicone hoses would be greatly appreciated!

I know of the ones from the other guys and that is where I was going to order from but if some one can chime in and tell me how to order these or if they are form CF Works then let me know... I thought there was only one choice but I would order these for my 06 R if someone would tell me how

Weren't there issues with running these, albeit from the other company? I thought someone had issues with them going bad somehow, and the end result was that the stockers are unfortunately better...

I don't even think that is an R pictured. Look at the airbox.

Good Eyes! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif You are correct, the test car is not a R, just a regular S60.

Good catch on the non-R. I noticed the intake hose/box as well, and the nose is too wide.\

about the OTE pipe, that motor looks a bit dressed up (look at oil filler cap), so maybe they "made" it fit.

Nice. Any idea how close they are in color to the StylinMotors vacuum lines? I'd hate to clash!

Do they have them in Black, like a regular hose? Can't say that I am a fan of the Smurf look for hoses.

Used for over 2 years with no problems at all on the S70. I'd be interested in replacing the R hoses with similar ones.

The small filter is a breather filter.

You are correct.
