The hose from the cold side of my turbo (Turbo to the intercooler cross over pipe) is leaking, I know I can just get a new stock one at big $$$ from the dealer. Does anyone in the aftermarket make one for our 1.8's? I've done searches and have only found whole hose kits.

interested in the samcos? i heard there's a copy on ebay that are inexpensive, similar in silicone materials to the mighty samco. you can check there. i remember that stock hose used to break on me all the time cause that dv outlet. good choice on wanting to go silicone on that hose for more strength.

I saw that silicone hose kit on ebay too... I will probably just go with that one. Mine is split/cracked right by the DV as well. I really had to fight a little bit with my APR inlet hose and wasn't too excited to try and force a made in china knock off on as well. I'll give it a try.
