Default Jim's pipes hose replacement

I get the drift that Jim is not a popular guy around here. LOL


I need to replace the bottom hoses on the Jim's hard pipe starion intercooler kit on my car. Does anyone know what car the radiator hoses came from? Or a subtable replacement using silicon or silicon and metal?

I got a replacement by taking one of them down to an auto parts store and comparing a whole bunch of them. I found the exact one and I beleive that it was from a truck.

Reason = They got old.

Like most things, sandwiches, people, ect when they get old it's time to cut them in half and throw them away.


I'll probably end up taking the hose over to napa, just though I could save some time if anyone knew what vehicle they are from.

I also have those pipes. So far to date, I haven't had any problems with them. Sorry to hear you need to replace the hose. If you could please post the napa part number, when you find a replacement hose. Thx in advance.

I also remember back when I was shopping for an intercooler, everyone was raving how great Jim's pipes were. How quickly everyone forgets. Not the best pipes, I have to agree, but the best affordable pipes at time I bought them.
