I know the big hp kits like APR's stage 3 has then but would there be any benefits if a person had a KO3 or a KO4 turbo? They are probably stronger, so they will last longer but are thier any other advantages?
My '97 had 2 intake hoses fail. The third was a MY2000 replacement with reienforcement in that area.
I don't know much about the Samcos but if they are stiffer, they'll act like a hardpipe- sending boost to the intake instead of ballooning out.
I will replace my hoses with hardpipes or perf hoses when the stock units fail. I cannot justify spending that much on marginal performance gains.
