    Default Facelift 1.8 Silicone Hoses

    Hi all
    Just a quick one, I have been trawling around the internet without much joy trying to find where I can get a complete set of silicone hoses.

    I'm pretty sure that my engine is a z18xer but could be wrong and so far have had absolutely no joy at all in finding a place that will stock / make a set.

    Does anyone have any idea who I can contact about getting a complete set of ancillary, breather, pretty much all the hoses that I could change I want to change. Ideally I would want a yellow set if that would make any difference.

    Any help would be appreciated as this is starting to drive me up the wall

    Vehicle : Lada

    Might be worth trying AON, id expect there to be more 1.8's in there with contacts that do it for them. Shouldn't be too much difference between a vec and an Astra, maybe rad hoses might be different.

    Doesn't look like anyone does a full set for the z18xer. Any body know what pipes I need to do MAF->TB? Also there is a piers pipe clipped to battery box. Would like to change that too...

    Im after yellow

    There will be more hoses that are different between the Astra and Vectra than are the same. The airbox size and location, coolant bottle location, etc will all be different.

    Have managed to source a cheap set of standard hoses, just need to find somewhere to make me up a set of silicone ones now

    Anyone know of a ball park figure I will be looking at to get these made?

    That's not for ours, that is for the xe, ours is the xer.

    As a matter of interest, I have contacted a company (JS Performance) about making some from my template set, if anyone would be interested in getting a set of hoses if I can get it sorted, I have let them know that I am a member of a club and others may be interested, so with that in mind........... can you put your name down so I can let the company know roughly how many would interested and hopefully we can get the costs down.

    This is not a group buy, you would have to order yourselves but if they know that my set is not a one off, hopefully it will work out quite a bit cheaper
