Choosing the Right Hose

When building your fuel system, it is important that you specify which type of braided hose you require, as not all braided hoses are the same.

PTFE Hoses – Advantages

  • Can be used when running hoses inside the car.
  • Lightweight

Options for custom silicone hoses

Here at Viper Performance we are able create custom silicone hoses. There are two methods for doing this, producing new tooling or modifying existing tool.

Custom Multiform hoses using new tooling

In order to produce a new hose shape it is essential to have forming tools, this is what moulds the silicone sheets into a hose. We then make a prototype silicone hose for your approval.

In order to produce a hose we will need to see 3d drawing or an original rubber hose. We cannot quote from a sketch, verbal description or photograph.

Modifying existing tool stock

Sometimes it is possible to modify existing tooling without the need to produce a new tool. In this case we can send an existing tool to our tool maker to adapt. This can save you money when compared to creating a new mandrel bend.
