so let me get this straight. your expecting to see top speed and acceleration increases from a silicone hose kit and your gonna have some one else cut them to length at cost instead of fitting them your self??

questions
1. how would silicone hoses provide performance in these areas? Is there a hose that replaces part of the intake it self instead of attaching to it?

2. what Filter are you attaching to the end of that hose if it is supplied?

3. why dont you just cut them your self. all it takes is a cutting device such as a razor or wire cutters, with some time and patience taking little by little off at a time.


i dont understand questions like these.

if a hose doesnt replace a section of the actual intake you wont see any gains for top speed or acceleration. just reliability.

the hose's are already cut so no need and you get the intake hose with the kit which i bought a itg air filter from roosemotorsport as well. i have a show car so the hose's make the enigine bay better to look at and the person what fitted them is a fully qualified bmw specailist mechanic who works for roosemotorsport. they are also 24 carrot gold plating my rocker cover in the future when its finished ill send pictures so you can see for yourself

oooookkkkkk. . . no offense to you sir but this thread is worthless. but im happy you like your hose kit and intake. i prefer fuction over form but thats just my $.02. i dont fix things that arent broken and im not going to let someone else install hoses on my car at cost when myself or even my little sister could install them for free. again no offense to you.

With your hose that replaces part of the intake and that filter you'll get roughly 4-8 horses and im not even gonna bother with torque cause its early and im already pissed i wasted time on this.

well i know the hose from the rocker cover to the breather valve on the 4 cylnder engines are very common for getting weak and suck in meaning the engine will run rough and it will split the diafram inside the breather valve. and the induction hose is common for splitting so if this does happen ppl will have to pay mechanics to diagnose the problem which will cost more than the full set of hose's. so maybe for you this tread is pointless but for ppl with the same engine as mine its a big money saver and makes the enigine bay look better . no offence

I dont know what your saying but im sure people have enough brains to figure out if a rubber hose needs replaced. It deoesnt take some specialized dealership mechanic to troubleshoot a rubber hose. alright im done. . . . i dont need to come into thie thread anymore.
