    Damage limitation.... Whatever you can replace in silicone is always the best option.... After a map anything that is borderline will perish and cause boost leaks...

    if money isnt too much of an issue go to ebay and get some, but if not get the map and see what hoses go but make sure your ready to order and replace instead of driving it injured
