    I wanna diy to connect the aluminium hose from the front of my bumper to my air filter.But i can't seem to be able to find the aluminium hose. I saw it once in kakimotor in subang but it cost about rm 50 for about 1 meter(i think)...very expensive though! :eek:

    Is there anyone out there in zerotohundred who knows where to get a cheaper aluminium hose with good qualities?

    URGENT!

    Thank You.

    Try looking at ACE Hardware, some of the air-con duct sold there, can be modified and used as a cold air intake.

    Why use aluminium hose?Wont it make the sucked air hotter because the engine bay is hot?

    If use plastic/silicon hose,the air is cooler because less heat taken by the plastic/silicon hose.

    Aluminium is cooler than stainless steel n more durable than rubber. Best use combo with silicone hose for flexibility.

    better not use aluminium hose, too fragile and rough inside for air intake.

    use flexible vinyl hose!
    i've got some,

    2.5" is RM10 per ft :)

    ya..i bought 1 of those, only the hose for RM42, without the bellmouth.. cuz i wanna diy my own bellmouth using plastic flower vase (hahahha).. anyway, the 1 they're selling in eneos is quite a cool product.. thumbs up.. but still a lil over-priced la.. bought mine from 1U there.
    good luck

    if u really looking for aluminium hose, go hardware shop and ask for those aircond aluminium hose la... those hose are similar to those sold by performance shop.... should be abit cheaper...

    if u looking for cheap cheap solution, refer to my siggie...
