Anyone have it? Thoughts? Comments? Seems like a pretty good idea considering our tube going to the TB is like a "S"[down] But $159 seems a bit steep for a freakin silicon hose

The Samco one is a lot cheaper.....Its my understanding that APR silicone hoses are reinforced by wires, in order to make them hold up under very high boost applications. So, I think the APR hose is a bit stronger than say a Samco or a Forge TBB....That being said, $160 is still a lot for only a hose. I just bought an entire Samco 4 pc hose kit for $225.....hasn't arrived yet tho :( .... But maybe since you have a BT, a stronger hose would make more sense?

I have it, I could be crazy but I noticed a difference. Quicker throttle response (prior to the meth) but the main reason I got it was for my meth. injecton.

The Samco is definitely not a straight line shot.
