Hey guys I just swapped out all my stock hoses with silicon ones and I feel a pretty good diff in boost, I had the stock ones changed to bigger hoses, And it really hepled. Anyone else do this yet, If so any power diff?

I've never heard of that with this car. But on the FD3S rx7 twin turbo swapping the vacumm lines with better one's yielded 20hp-30hp to the wheels.

I'm a little slow, I guess. How do silicon hoses increase power? Where do you buy them? Any pics yet? Thanks.

The silicon hoses would help there be less friction so the air can flow more freely than the stock rubber hoses. Silicon surfaces are nice and smooooth (smoother than the rubber ones on our stock cars :) ). Which hoses did you replace?
