I would like to replace all of these hoses as a set. There is a complete assembled set (with pressure valve, tee fitting and brackets) online that I like but apparently it comes only in bright blue and I would like to remain with the stock OEM black (would really like the 9C1 green silicone but prices I have seen are out of my league...). Does anyone one know of a silicone or quality rubber black set for this car (also the steam pipe elbow to the throttle body) that is reasonable in price?

Thanks in advance, Don

PS, don't know if this makes any difference but this car has the towing package with one electric fan (dvr's side)and one mechanical fan (pax side). The hose coming off the thermostat housing to the radiator bottom is two pieces with a metal midsection piece that is bracketed to one of the studs in the front of the block. The one available over the couter at parts stores around here (Dayco) is one piece and must be cut to fit (and its not a good fit as such).

Found the heater hose set (called an assembly). It broke down into front and rear components and was about $125 for the pair. Several times more expensive than purchasing the individual pieces at Advance, Carquest, etc, but included the mounting brackets, needed T fitting, pressure regulator, etc.
