    Default DPH Sport hose kit

    Has anyone else had any problems with the DPH Sport hose kit for the 1.9 150?

    I ordered one and started fitting yesterday and have so far managed to fit 3 pipes only. Each one has needed to be cut down by almost an inch in some cases. The throttle body to intercooler one was way out.

    Just wondering if I've got a duff kit or if others have had similar problems. Not really good enough when it's £120 a kit for some silicone! If I didn't have 2 knackered boost hoses I'd be sending it back.

    I can't justify £120 for some blue hoses not fully convinced on the advantages over standard new pipes they do look pretty but thats about all IMHO

    Wouldn't the Astra one need lengthening I am sure the engine bay is smaller, DPH do a Vectra C 150 one but it should be better than having to cut it about for £120 TBH

    For that price you'd want to just pop on and tighten...

    It's a Vectra kit - the moulds were made from the pipes on Husky's car on here. They just seem to have all been cut to the wrong length.

    Just come to fit the last hoses now. It's not even close. WTF is this?! Does it look like an Astra one?

    You should have got a kit like this

    The bottom 2 hoses in the picture are for that pipe did your set look like this?
