    Does anyone have a part number for the oem hose?
    I've had this fitted Forge Motorsport | Alloy Fabrication
    But now part of it has melted away and the jubilee clip won't stay on anymore under boost

    Have you got a relentless manifold fitted at all?

    OE hose is twice the price of a forge one btw...

    Ah k... relentless will melt it for sure lol....

    I have heard of the Forge ones de laminating before but generally speaking it should last a bit longer than than two years... you still need to use the OE heat wrap if you have it as this will help..

    Two years from a "high temperature resistant flourosilicone compound" product?! That doesn't sound right?!

    I'd email Forge or the place you purchased the hose from and get it replaced

    Lol- I did the same earlier actually as I wanted to know what happens if my current Forge products failed and he said the same dude - free replacement could get sent out.

    He did say it was very rare for that part to fail- so hopefully you won't have any issues with the new one :)
