hi guys,

not sure if i should upgrade my engine bay hoses to silicone & possibly even do the hard pipe kit for my gtr whilst the engine is out.

ive come across these 2 companies on ebay:
http://www.silicone-hose.net/
ASI

does anyone have experience with these guys? they are very cheap, only $450aud for the heater hose kit, radiator hose kit & hard pipe kit

my other concern is whether the hard pipe kit 'may' increase of turbo shuffle as im running -10's on an rb26/30???

pls ignore this post - i bit the bullet & bought the heater hose kit.
was also advised to stay away from the hard pipe kit as this can increase turbo shuffle as the stock pipes apparently minimise this.

stock intercooler pipes will balloon under higher pressures, much above 1.3/4bar and you may come across some issues (from what i have been told and seen in a couple of instances, could be why they aid shuffle as they take up any slack). I have silicone IC hoses and for the cost theyve been pretty good :) certainly held 1.8bar just fine.

With -10s they will be pushing a lot more air than a stock turbo so id advise changing them.
