    Won't be loosing boost due to the 'boost' pipes 'going soft'... they were never 'hard/stiff' to begin with... std boost pipes normally leak due to loose or buggered clips and generally speaking tightening them up or replacing them with JCS Hi-Grip clips (not normal jubilee's!) will fix most leaks..

    Pipes that go 'soft' and are prone to splitting are normally vacuum pipes and PCV pipes especially those that are under the inlet manifold and there are quite a few threads on here covering all that...

    If you want to replace your 'boost' hoses them check out Forge Motorsport's website...

    Whos told you your loosing boost? Unless 1. youve got a leak or 2.there split then their talking ********.

    You can use several suppliers mate, forge, sfs, ebay, ths, take your pick OR you could make your own upper boost hoses for half the cost.
