I am ready for new hoses and have only used "real" TR6 hoses (the green ones)in the past with exceptional durability I might add.

Who has reliable green hoses today and what do they cost?

I've got green silicone hoses from Cambridge Motorsports. They are a bit lighter shade of green than the "real" hoses but you can't beat 'em for longevity. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Silly me, I was thinking Cambridge, MA, USA! Any way when I looked at the Cambridge Motorsport web page I found aluminum radiators but no hoses. Consequently, I looked at The Roadter Factory and found I could get a set for around $75 shipped (2 upper radiator hoses; 2 lower radiator hoses; 2 manifold hoses (front and rear); 2 heater hoses (supply and return). Any body have any comments about the quality of the TRF Green hoses?

I have had the Roadster factory's green hoses on my TR6 for about a year now and have not had any problems with them...

I think there is mention that TRF has cured it's problems with the green hoses. Mine turned blackbut they replace no problem.

Have no idea, but they did have a problem with them. I think they have cured this. The new green replacement still lost alot of its color but you can still tell it is green. Past threads have discussed this too.

Didn't take very long.

I also installed the green hoses from the RF, fit perfect, look good, no durability problems.
