it's not an official HPF hose but it's the exact same thing for 1/4 price of what they were probably asking.

I've ordered silicone couplers from www.siliconeintakes.com in the past. Prompt shipping, and good quality products. While you're at it, order some t-bolt clamps to go along with your couplers.

Use coupon code link987 for 10% off your order too.

I just got some from this place. They are a little longer than the HPF couplings, which I like.

Despite what the conspiracy theorists think HPF, is not coming back under some "other" name. Vivid is a great company and the owners are great guys to work with. Expect great things in the future for our cars!

does this mean that a hpf turbo kit is available from them? and any inquiry about a turbo kit, should be placed with them?

even if you could order it, why in the world would you choose the hpf kit when maxpsi has theirs out? aside from the intake manifold, maxpsi has hpf beat in every single respect and does it for 3/4 the price.

one of the reasons I was sad to see hpf go is because I really wanted to see the competition between the 2 companies. they both have great products but I predict hpf would have seen a massive decline in sales if maxpsi had their kit out 2 years ago.

Still using the regular clamps. As long as the couplings aren't oil soaked, they work just fine. Once the couplings are gooey, then t clamps won't hold any better.

maxpsi kit is more of a welded metal "make it work" kit, which works fine and in comparison to hpfs kit is more of a thought out oem looking kit... everyones got their preferences, regardless i was looking to see where i would find support for the kit from
