Silicone radiator hoses

Really just want them to dress up the engine bay. Is it work the price? Do they work as well as rubber hoses? If they are worth it, who sells them for the 04 5.7? Only place i can find is Samco from the UK. Thanks for thr info in advance

They definitely are an improvement - I've used them in the past on FE big block 427 Fords with great success - Goodyear has an assortment of the light blue silicone hoses mostly used as heater hose replacement. The molded custom fit hoses often come in a variety of colors and a variety of higher prices.

I'll have to check that out. I assume that its better to get a molded hose than to build your own to prevent leaking. Did you build your own or get molded one?

Used both kinds - pre-formed where available and mostly flexible cut-to-length for the smaller hoses.
