We have expanded our range of Y piece Silicone Hoses

Our unique Y piece silicone hoses are a very useful connector if you’ve got two pipes going into one – otherwise impossible to obtain. With our recent expansion of our Y piece silicone hose connectors, we have sizes varying between 32mm and 76mm. the main body is larger than the diameter, splitting and reducing down to two equal branches.

These connectors are carefully moulded by hand and there is no ‘flashing’ of any silicone inside the join which provides excellent water and airflow.

The Y piece silicone hose connector is suitable for applications including trucks, vehicles, boats and anything else with an engine.

Hose to carry fuel from filler neck to fuel tank

A fuel filler hose is the pipe which takes fuel from the filler neck to the fuel tank. As stated in our blog ‘Are Silicone hoses fuel resistant?’ Silicone is not a good material for this purpose and therefore our fuel filler hoses are made entirely of nitrile rubber. This material offers excellent resistance to fuel.

Inside the hose is a smooth nitrile liner. The wire is embedded in the wall of the hose to offer suberb flexibility. Two size options are available half a metre and 1 metre lengths from 38mm to 63mm internal diameter.

To secure the hose we recommend stainless steel T bolt hose clips.

Please note These hoses are not Suitable for high octane fuels.

How to stop boost hoses popping off

My boost hose has popped off again!! A regular site in forums.

A common problem with turbo systems is hoses slipping or popping off. This is caused by high pressure within the system forcing the hose off. Often the clips that hold the hoses in place are not strong enough to withstand this pressure. If the hoses pop off you will know immediately as it will affect performance considerably.

Although all Viper Performance aluminium pipes come with Roll Beaded ends to prevent hoses slipping, in some cases, pressure is so high that even the tightest fitted hoses are unable to stay in place. This can be annoying if you’re on the road but catastrophic in a race environment.

So what’s the answer?

The boost brace is specifically designed to solve this problem.  You can simply weld the flat seat of the feet onto your aluminium pipes, adjust the length of your bracket, and eureka,  hoses will never come off again.

What’s more is that thanks to our clever quick release pin, you can remove your installation in a second with no tools!
