Does anyone know where I can get a set of Silicone hoses for an Str ? My new genuine hoses have started popping after just a few thousand miles,the nasty one under the supercharger has let go again.Samco dont have Jaguar listed and Paragon only have mention of the 4.0 litre supercharged,nothing for the 4.2.
Id prefere things to be easy,i want to send money a receive ready made hoses if at all possible,if not then a custom route it will have to be,but how much time and potch is that gonna be,esp as car will have to be stripped and hoses removed then sent away I assume
Well, apparently my hoses are gonna be with me midweek. Ive got the car booked in somewhere I havnt used before,Sterling Jaguar. They have given me a quote of £560 to replace all the hoses and the coolant. After the mental money Ive paid in Stratstones and Paramount performance I thought that quote was fabulous.Plus theyre picking the car up on a wagon for me inc.
Mines seems to have suffered worse than most,the car has now done 130k so maybe that has ad an effect. It appears the valley pipe has gone for the 2nd time,though I cant say for definate as it cant be viewed.The £600 includes clips,nice ones I believe and all the tees I believe are in steel or similar.I thought the quote was really good,the last time the valley pipes went it ran into a couple of grand at the stealers. Its a shame ,all this time waiting has given me such itchy feet...that cossie was the mutts nuts...cant wait till Wednesday now. If I do decide to sell someone will get one nice str,in 3 yrs ive spent nearly 20k on it,not including purchase price. ...its just so darn pretty u can forgive it anything
Wow thats some dosh you've laid out there BB. But I guess that when the engine cooling is sorted you just gotta look at keeping that SC cool. The SC cooling can be done very efficiently with NOS and you can also kick ass with smug kids in Red Corsa's
Thats way too technical a question for me. The hoses arrived on Wednesday hallelulyah. The jag was taken 9.30 Wednesday evening on a lorry.Donnas been carless now for 6 weeks ,as I have had 2 take her landrover off her for works use......We may yet still be buying a scooby if we can sort a deal im happy with.If we do the plan atm is to keep the jag too...for the moment at least. Unless anyone here wants to offer me a good price.
