Hey guys,
I know it says these are for the b6, but does anyone have any experience with them? and could they be used on a b5?

About half down on this page.

Might work, but using that much hose is never a good idea.

Looks a lot like the silicone piping available from 034.

yeah, except its a heck of a lot cheaper. if i went this route i would probably trim the pipes down some as well as get a section of aluminum pipe made up for the dv and map sensor (relocate the dv to the cold side). i might make this my fall project

No way, im sure 2" is good enough from k03-k04 or even my T28.

Why even bother with anything for a k03 or k04? I've had the full Samco set on my car for years and doubt it gains anything whatsoever over stock. Complete waste of money unless you can prove the stock parts are causing real problems.

well ive got the just-intercoolers front mount, and im always blowing off my pipes. i like the samco set, but i would only use about half the pieces i think. that and the samco set would need some tweaking to put the dv on the cold side.

That hose kit doesn't, but the set he posted replaces the restictive S hose at the throttle body.
