New RX8 Silicon Radiator Hoses

Another press release for RX8 users. Agency Power has just released Silicon Radiator hose kits for your car.

Since we do not sell on the boards, Dealer Inquires welcome directly to the manufacturer. There is no other company with these available. We are using them on the Pepsi car.

Here is the Verbage -
The amount of heat a rotary motor puts out is far greater then most standard designed engines. For high performance needs, keeping a cars engine temperatures down and efficient is EXTREMELY important. Agency Power now offers this 3 ply silicone radiator hose kit for your Mazda RX8. These hoses replace both the top and bottom factory hose. The OEM rubber hose tends to burst under extreme heat and crack over time. These silicone hoses improve flow and are not affected by heat like rubber hoses. They come in 3 powerful colors. Glossy black, red, or blue are available. Each hose kit includes new clamps for easy installation.

Direct info on the hoses with prices and dealer opportunities is LOCATED HERE

wow 3 powerful colors.....

I put a set of silicone hoses in my miata, they were replacing rubber hoses with about 20k miles on them, i didnt notice and temp difference, but the silicone hoses didnt expand as much as the rubber ones when hot...that could mean since the cooling system is holding a higher pressure its having better flow and also is more boiling resistant.

We would need to have 30 people. If you want to start a GB on 30 people for yellow hoses go for it!

Silicon hoses will not give you mre pressure and flow to cool your car.

They're just heat resistant. Last longer and look better.

You replace the factory hoses when they start to show wear. Normally you'll see the rubber start cracking around the edges.

There isn't particularlly a "mileage" or "time" to replace them...because its all dependent on environmental and driving conditions.

Obviously if you put 50k on your car in one year, vs 10 years, thats two very different driving/owning situations.

If you take your car to the dealer, they are supposed to inspect them every service. If you aren't, then you better be inspecting them yourself!

I got them. Fit went on well. Thick as hell. Don't think I have to worry about the turbo heat overwhelming them.

Silicon is very, very hard. How do you get these to strech and flex as you are installing them? Do you need to heat them up to 2500 deg F before you put them on? Do they come with a warrany in case you drop one and it shatters?

silicon is hard (as silicon in processors).

silicone is soft (as silicone in a womans body).

edit: Oh, I see, sarcasm.
