You're right those are water hoses, top and bottom and the two that run to and from the heater matrix (by the look of it they will connect to the existing rubber hoses behind the false bulkhead). They're pretty in blue but, given the price, I think I'll stick with my black rubber ones


Wonder what price the turbo hoses will come in at...

Hi. New to SAAB I'm even newer to modding them. Do these hoses make any difference to the performance? There's no doubting they look pretty cool.

Good question. Answer is no, not really. For the small bore vacuum hoses, but it makes sense to do them in silicon if you're upgrading elsewhere and your original hoses are getting on in years. In that case silicon is less expensive than SAAB hose, should last longer and be less prone to come off with higher boost pressures.

I can certainly think of better places to spend the approx £185 asking price of the 9000 coolant hoses.
