    S3 split hose - urgent help needed

    they are upper boost hoses. the one on the left of the pic is shaped its not just a normal 90 angle so you will need to replace with forge or samco but yes you can replace them with silicone ones. FMKT008 - Forge Motorsport Upper Boost Hoses - VAG 1.8T 210 / 225 | eBay
