Default Silicone Hoses in Colors - Intake Sizes Too!

I happened upon this site just now. It offers high quality silicone hoses for all types of engine bay applications including (but probably not limited to) heater hoses, rad hoses, intake reducer/expansion couplers, vacuum hoses, INTAKE hoses in sizes to 4.00" dia and lengths of 3'. Colors, seem to be black, red, and blue. None of it is cheap, but the quality seems to be top notch for those dressing up an engine bay.

Stylin' Motors

It may be that this site is already well known here, but I hadn't seen it yet.

I know that the name seemed familiar, but I wasn't sure. What peaked my interest the most was the three foot lengths of large diameter hose that could be used to make a flex tube for a CAI. Slicone does not transfer heat very well, so could possibly foil heat soak as an issue.

like using slicone for the "rice pipe" rather then the triditional crome pipe... that could some a lot of issues with the pipe rubbing conpressors and the such too.

???? Why would that be?

It would be no different than using a rice pipe or FWI, except that you would have to make sure that the heat shield was fastened to something.
