New Stett Performance Radiator Hoses

Hey Guys! Just got these this morning. Big thanks to Chad Stett of Stett Performance for making this boy's dream a reality. I was going to go by and pick them up, but Chad wanted to install them and make sure everything was perfect (and it is). Perfect fitment, top quality. Very thick. Kit includes the 2 large hoses, new hose clamps, and new, oversized o-rings. The hoses are VERY heavy duty. I don't think an exploding fan would take these out.

These will fit all E46 M54 engines. Chad also has the M3 hoses available.

He's working up pricing. I'll have it soon. If you guys are interested, send me a PM with your name and email. I'll get you pricing when he has them available.

Also, he's finishing up the tooling on the intake hoses. Those should be awesome!

Pics: (Excuse my dirty engine bay, I would have cleaned it up if I had known there would be pics today).

Did you have to modify the radiator and thermostat housing to get these to work? It looks like there is still a piece of the lower hose there with the temp sensor attached...

Nothing has to be modified. You just have to cut off the old metal clamps and reuse the plastic couplings.

Chad said he could work up a group buy. Let's see if we can get some interest so we can get you guys a good discount!

STETT Performance E46 Silicone Radiator Hose Kit

These large bore 4 ply extreme duty silicone hoses can withstand temperatures up to 550 degrees and maintain flexibility down to -65 degrees. Specially formulated Viton oring replacements provide a higher resistance to petroleum products and antifreeze while providing a greater seal under extreme temperatures thanks to tighter tolerances aimed at reducing thermal expansion under high heat. Each kit comes with upper and lower silicone hoses, replacement connector orings, aux fan switch oring and hose clamps. Available in red, blue and black.

Kit Retail: $145

What's the advantage? The original hoses are cheap and of good quality too.

You'll never have to change these. They definitely won't blow up on you at the track.

If the price was right, I would probably get a red set.

Get some people interested in a group buy. I'm sure we can get the price down.

Yep, should work fine. I believe they use the same radiator hoses.

ESS's modified radiator hose is just an OEM one reversed.. I wonder if I can stick these hoses in place. They do seem thick, are they flexible enough?


thanks

^Ha, I like how they've pushed the upper hose away from the intake pulley :-)

I'd be interested on this if we can confirm it will clear the S/C pulley on the ESS TS kits.
