Default Stainless Steel Turbo hoses

Will these be better than standard silicon anyone using them ?

Currently still got the OEM rubber ones on my 2007 CRD at 140,000 Km

So really needing replacment

I think they will be more expensive

Upgrade to Samco silicone, metal is expensive and adds more joiners which then adds more areas to fail. Also doesn't flex as much as silicone when the engine moves.

Thanks for the offer but I'll stick with the Samco's now.
Was looking at some stainless steel ones from Germany but were double the cost ....

Well I eventually replaced the 11 year old rubber turbo hoses on my 2007 with the Samco silicon.
Apart from dirty oily residue on the outside internally they looked fine with no visible cracks after 145,000KM
So that's one more paranoia box crossed off the list

I used Alu tubing & silicone tubing for mine, one problem. My aluminium tubing was not expanded on the ends to prevent the silicone pipes from slipping off under pressure. No matter how tight I fasten the hose clamps, they eventually slip off. I have to find time to weld a bead on the ends of my Alu tubing. When my boost was around 0.8 bar, I didn't have a problem. After my last engine rebuild, the boost pressure went up to 1.0/1.1 bar & my silicone pipes started popping off from the Alu as often as every second day.
