Hi all,

Im going to replace and upgrade all my coolant hoses to silicone ones. I was wondering if anyone knew of anywhere that did them. Ive found a couple of places using google but nothing car specific (RR 98 SE 4ltr auto lpg).

Also is there a specific grade/specification hose i need to be looking for?

Oh and im in the south of the UK

They are hard to find as sets for the Land Rover range except for the boost/intercooler hoses on certain diesel engines.

I had a customer price up a set of coolant hoses for a an EU3 Discovery 2 TD5 and they were £450GBP for the set via Merlin Motorsport at Castle Combe. Saying that, I have seen an advert for a silicon main hose for that engine somewhere recently (the one with the bleed screw which goes from the head and over the turbo area back towards the radiator).

I expect that there may be a set for the early Rover 3.5 engine as well, but that's no good for the later RV8.

As far as grades go, the SAMCO hoses are a standard specification except for their XDB range which are insanely sturdy. I've fitted 3 of these kits on the Disco3 TDV6 Lion and I expect they will easily last the lifetime of the vehicle.

they are more robust and less prone to wear and tear.

im going to look at buying hoses from this site...

http://siliconhoses.com/

does anyone know off the top of their heads what the relevant hose diameters are ? i can then just buy some hoses and cut them to suit,.

cheers
