They’re pricy, you can’t deny that. But they’re also top quality…..product is almost a night and day comparison to stock hoses. If you need to replace your radiator, might as well upgrade your hoses while your at it. During the install I learned that my upper hose was rubbing against a pulley…..it’s hadn’t torn through, but was working it’s way to it. The Mishimoto hose didn’t have the same issue; they reduced the angle on one of the bends which pushed the hose out enough to avoid touching that pulley. Doubly glad I upgraded. Enjoy the pic of my blown stock radiator!
