Hello,

Anyone know where to get silicone radiator hose kit for vehicle in signature? Mishimoto doesn't make a set. I reached out to a couple companies on internet and I need to place an order of at least a 100 hoses for custom kits. I don't want to piecemeal (jerry rig) various pieces together. Any ideas?


Respectfully,

Pajero!

Why do you need silicone? Does silicone play nice with coolant?

Most radiator hoses are EPDM, which is good and lasts a long time smile

Thats a pretty unusual car. I doubt you will find silicon hoses for it.

Ask on Mitsubishi forums as those guys love to "customize".

Pajero, Chris fixes radiators in Death Valley. Modern hoses are pretty good. The Borman 6, 31 yrs old and 350K miles is going to the crusher with mostly original hoses. Most of the hoses on the Rat are original.
