Yo that was cheap. So cheap I felt dirty like it might be a fake. Worth the gamble though, will be here on saturday. Thanks for pointing this one out!
I'd be curious to if it's got the steel wound coil built into the silicone *

Same I'll look it over and mention it. If I can tell definitively one way or the other.
Oh..you will be able to tell immediately by looking in the inside of the intake hose it will be ribbed from the wound coil in the silicone. That and you wont be able to squish it shut with your hands.

Not sure what that Samco sport is. There is definitely some wire in the silicone. It's reinforced along most of it. There is one section where they left some out, just before it bends to meet the crossover pipe. Seems pretty solid. I like the way the nipple is built into it. I said nipple.

Samco makes alot of Silicone hoses for a variety of businesses and for themselves also. I wouldn't be surprised if Mountune contracted them out to make some for them.

What sort of motor oil are people running that are using an S280? Looking to change my oil tomorrow and trying to decide.

They also are an F1/WRC/racing industry level supplier of silicone hoses, so the quality is definitely there.

I was actually a bit disappointed that my Mountune charge hoses did not have the Samco logo on them, as they supposedly switched to a U.S. based supplier (maybe Hoses Inc.? [dunno]) some years ago for the US market.
