The search is givin me the s**t - can anyone recommend either online stores (not e-bay but actual performance/parts stores etc) or joints preferably in Perth that sell aftermarket replacement silicone etc hose kits

Looking to swap-out the engine soon so would be a good time to do the heater hoses etc - so thought i'd do the lot and give the engine bay a make-over

Appreciate any help

Cheers
Kev

They are supposedly not to bad the gates hoses. Dont have any experience using them, but have seen a few members with the blue Gates radiator hoses.

And yep Pole Position do a hose dress up kit for the e-series. As seen here.. http://polepositionauto.com.au/eseries.shtml

As long as you by brand names from supercheap your fine
Gates are a big US brand known for quality high performance hoses

just cause your buying king springs from SCA does'nt mean they're going to break faster than if they where purchased from a suspension place

hehe nice - and yes agree SCA do sell reputable and reliable products also but this is the first ive heard about gates and after seeing a few responses praising them i'll certainly be looking into em..

Thanks everyone for the feedback...
