The VWR Performance Silicone Hose Kit is designed to
directly replace every single one of your original equipment rubber hoses with
our ultra-high performance Silicone Hoses with Inner Fluro ‘G12 & G13-compliant’ lining.
Our Hose Kit is unique in that it is only developed for the Golf 7 and other MQB-platform cars, ensuring 100% accuracy on every single hose. Each kit includes a replacement for every single hose necessary on the car – not just a selection.
These premium quality, hand crafted hoses give great peace of mind by working to greater levels of temperature & pressure - essential if you’ve upgraded your car, or drive it to its full performance. And of course, the VWR Performance Silicone Hose Kit will further enhance the look of your engine bay over the standard organic rubber hoses, with a choice of three vivid colours.
The only Silicone Hose Kit on the market that has been developed exclusively for the MQB platform cars. Meaning that every single hose has accuracy guaranteed: the perfect dimensions, fits first time, and lasts. Different kits for GTI, R, DSG and manual cars shows our attention to detail.
The unique thing about the VWR Performance Silicone Hose Kit is that the kit includes every hose necessary for the vehicle. No other manufacturer currently offers a complete kit that is 100% accurate and covers every hose found on the car.
Designed to thrive on the high pressures and extreme temperatures found in high performance EA888 Gen3 engines, our 4-ply reinforced hoses retain strength, prevent collapse and cope with expansion under heat and pressure, no matter what you put them through.
As you’d expect, we only use premium grade silicone rubber - not cheaper materials on the inner layers to cut costs, unlike some other manufacturers. Our hoses do not fade over time and keep their vibrant colours for life through the use of the most expensive pigments available.
Not only does our Silicone Hose Kit offer you proven reliability and performance, it is also the best way to add a striking finishing touch to your engine bay, available in 3 colours to match your car.
Unlike most Silicone Host kits, we've used an Inner Fluro lining to be compatible with G12 and G13 coolant fluid used on MQB cars - usually this fluid is very aggressive to silicone. Make sure you don’t buy anything other than G12/G13 compatible.
/// For the best in looks
and performance, it simply has to be silicone. Silicone hoses operate at much higher
temperatures and pressures than other rubbers, they don’t perish, and they look
great. If you are tuning your engine and pushing it to its limit, you don’t
want your hoses to let you down –that’s why our race cars only use the VWR
Performance Silicone Hose Kit.
/// But the VWR Performance Silicone Hose Kit isn’t just about adding the race appearance to your engine bay; it also provides peace of mind. The 4 Ply reinforcement can take far higher temperatures and hold higher pressures than the original organic rubber hoses, and won’t deteriorate and perish, no matter what you put them through.
/// One of the benefits of good silicone under high temperature is its increased adhesion properties to metal under high temperature. Although minute, this will reduce the possibilities of pressure/boost loss. The strength of our grade of silicone will also allow for some expansion under load without any risk of failure.
/// Overall, our high performance materials and hand-built construction on a formed mandrel ensure total component reliability throughout your engine bay, even on the highest-powered modified engines.
/// Every element of the VWR Performance Silicone Hose Kit are tested to
ensure that they meet the standards we demand on our race, track and high
performance cars. We test a number of aspects of hose performance including
endurance testing, burst testing and cyclic vibration testing.
/// Some cheaper silicone hose kits use cheap silicones, mixed with fillers, and sometimes leave out important internal layers of the hose construction to cut costs. Other manufacturers use two different types of silicone; one for the exterior and one for the interior.
/// Many silicones are not compatible with the G12 and G13 coolant fluids used on the MQB-platform cars – which will lead to rapid failure. Our Inner Fluro lining is specifically developed to carry these antifreeze concentrates. Without this inner lining the harsh chemicals contained within antifreeze concentrate can quickly degrade the polyester and silicone outer layers, resulting in the eventual failure of the hose.
/// So although they may look similar, not all silicone hoses are created equal. A substandard silicone, or a mix of qualities can never deliver the strength and reliability needed for long term durability. The last thing you want to be worrying about is whether a pipe may ever fail, with potentially disastrous consequences. That’s why all of our hoses have been developed to give the ultimate performance regardless of the demands you ask of them.
/// We only recommend using hot soapy water to clean your hoses. If you do this regularly, the natural shine will last as long as your engine.
DO NOT use petrol or any petroleum based cleaning products (including those labelled as Silicone shine or similar) – whilst these may give a short term shine, over time they discolour the hose.
