Hoses Turbo esprit 82

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found a supplier of all the hoses. There are the usual suspects but some of the prices for mounded bits are astronomical. Theirl has to be a cheaper and better supplier?

The mounded rubber bits are non reinforced pipe. Maybe they have been curved to a shape by heating?

Surprised there's not a complete set of  all hoses in a kit. Some of the water only silicone kits may be ropey?

Hi Fabian, 

I would recommend the silicone hoses but be prepaired to buy extra. Alloy pipe couplings to make some of the awkward pipes, stainless steel clamps also and you are looking at hassle free, very well fitting coolant pipes imo.

The just fit better in my mind as they seal to the pipes better due to the softer better sealing silicon.

Either ebay or merlin motorsports !

Good luck

There is no kit for the early Turbo cars but I changed all mine and only one hose was a custom item if I recall correctly and that was not too expensive from DJ.

The alloy pipes on the other hand are expensive and several of them are custom. All of mine needed replacing except the long ones through the chassis (fortunately!)
