sr20det hose kit

Recommended Posts

Looking to do some preventative maintenance over the xmas. Where can I get a complete hose kit for sr20det? Mainly interest in pre-molded hose as other I can get from auto store and cut to length.

Cheers

I bought a generic Chinese silicone kit off eBay and it has been absolutely fine. In fact, the hoses have been so fine that they survived an oil-starvation engine failure that resulted in the alloy between the two rear cylinder sleaves being destroyed, and enough heat that the knock sensor melted.

 

It wasn't any special brand, just a generic multi-layer silicone kit made in China and sold cheaply through eBay.

Also, if you replace your vacuum lines, only buy cheap rubber vacuum hose. Rubber vacuum lines hold their shape whereas the thin silicone vacuum lines collapse with the heat, at least that has been my experience.

Ty for that.

Any idea on how many hose in total?

Some have 9 and some have 10 on ebay.

Best thing is to look at the hoses depicted in the heater hose diagram in the S14 FSM, then tick off what comes in the kit. The kit I bought was missing a few hoses and had at least one I couldn't seem to use, but otherwise it was ok. If there's a hose that no kit contains, hit up TAARKS for an oem replacement of that missing hose.
