Q. Why should I buy silicone hoses?

For the best looks and performance it has to be silicone. Silicone hoses operate at much higher temperatures and pressures than other rubber hoses.

Q. What makes SFS Performance different to other hose suppliers?

Unlike other manufacturers we only use premium grade silicone rubber through-out the hose, and do not use cheaper compounds on the inside to cut costs. All of our silicone hoses are constructed to meet or exceed SAEJ20R1 Class A. To ensure that our hoses keep their vibrant colours, and do not fade over time, we use the most expensive pigments available.
We pride ourselves on giving our customers a level of service second to none. All of our staff are friendly and courteous irrespective of whether we are dealing with an individual or a large OEM manufacturer.

Q. Where are the hoses manufactured?

We manufacture all of our hoses in the UK from our facility in Luton, ensuring we have total control of all aspects of quality. Some of our competitors are selling Chinese or Indian manufactured hoses and branding them with their own logos. These imported hoses might be cheap, but they are not produced to the strict quality procedures that we work to.

Q. Does SFS Performance have any quality accreditation?

Yes, We are accredited to ISO9001, our registration number is 1007700, please click here to view our policy and certificate.

Q. Why are there no prices in the web site?

Although we have a R.R.P.; distributor selling prices do vary especially overseas, but you can contact us to check.

Q. I want to buy a kit but my car isn't listed?

If your car isn't listed we currently don't make a kit for it. If you are a member of a club why not organise a group buy and we may be able to make a new kit.

Q. Can you make a special hose for my car?

Due to the way the hoses are made we can make specials but it is subject to a tooling charge, we are happy to help so please contact us.

Q. Can't you look through your tooling and match it to one?

We are happy to help with your needs and can check our tooling but we have several thousand tools so will it may take a week to check them all.

Q. If another car has the same engine will the hoses fit?

Not usually, even if the engines are the same the position of the radiator, expansion bottle, heater matrix, etc. is normally different.

Q. You don't list my car but I still want hoses.

The only option is to use our range of standard motorsport parts to make up a kit for your car. This range includes accessories such as machined billet aluminium joiners and hose clips.

Q. How do I clean the hoses?

We suggest hot soapy water, oil based solutions such as WD40 will discolour the hose and should not be used.

Q. How do I cut the hoses?

The best way is to use a new snap off blade for cutting and a hose clip around the hose for a straight line.

Q. Are the hoses suitable for oil and petrol?

Standard hoses are only suitable for air and water, for oil vapour we offer fluoro silicone hoses.

Q. How long do the hoses take to make?

Unlike other manufacturers we carry a lot of the standard motorsport parts in blue, red and black on the shelf. Kits and special order items typically take two weeks.

Q. Can you make hoses in any colour?

We offer a standard range of seven colours which should cover most tastes.
