Default Mishimoto Heater Hose kits...

In my never-ending research of Miata parts I came across Mishimoto's heater hose kits that they just released for the 90-95 Miata.

Mazda Miata Silicone Heater Hose Set, 1992-1993, by Mishimoto

Is anyone running this product? When the time comes I am going to be running a Mishimoto radiator and hose kit for cooling, I wanted to get your opinions on whether or not the heater hoses would be a useful addition to that. Thanks everyone

130 bucks for some rubber hose. Talk about rip off.

The only place where I would even think about changing hose would be the heater return. Swap that for some of that blue silicone hose made for oil, it can withstand more heat then regular rubber.

Does Samco have formed silicone heater hoses for the Miata?

Werd, rubber heater hoses with some heat shielding is all you will ever need.
