    Coolant hoses?

    I won a voucher on Facebook to spend at a performance hose supplier which im happy about.

    But im not sure about what to get, could anyone give me some info on coolant hose internal diameter or advice or what to change.

    Cheers, Ben

    Not sure if this is of any help...I had all of mine replaced with SFS hoses to get rid of the rather iffy stock collection.

    To be honest, on a standard car the difference in performance between (the majority) of standard hoses and performance silicone replacements is minimal (if any). Unless you're tuned etc. I'd stick to the most visible ones for the best effect on aesthetics.

    This coming from a man who has (due to assisting in the development process) got £500 worth of Roose Motorsport silicone hoses under the bonnet, lol!!

    I have to agree.....mine is pretty heavily modified,so I went for something that should be more reliable in the long term,but for everyday use,I'm sure you're right.
