I generally get the oem stuff from my local dealership. It's just an overall clean look imo. Plus they give me very nice discounts because I bring my business to them along with other guys with old school yotasI would get the "gates" hoses from Driftmotion. If you are on a budget. Otherwise I would get all new OEM Toyota hoses. OEM will run you several hundred dollars. I don't think the silicone hoses will go 10 plus years without fail. IMO
That wasn't my intention, I was guessing jetjock (as usual) would jump in and offer a snide remark but no factual information. It seems he felt compelled to regardless.I dont think silicone had even been considered for automotive hose use back when the supra was built, so...
Does anyone know if any oem manufactures build their cars using stock silicone hoses yet?
Oh sorry, I forgot science doesn't apply in the real world.I bet the JJ fellow is talking about real world results. On most MKIII's and really most old toyota vechicles have alot of hoses that are 25 30 years old. They fit properly and if you make sure the metal fittings are clean and use new Toyota spring clamps they are good for another 20 plus years. Oem Toyota only for me.
But you can do what ever you want. Some of the "smartest people in world" say this or that. I'll stick with the "dumb" Toyota engineers. Just saw a thread about a engine that was destoyed by a "upgraded" oil line failure. Because the supposed crappy OEM part sucks. Yea.
Have a nice day
