Was wondering if there are any(i haven't found one yet) Kits for the coolant hoses in our cars, 10-11s. Or is there a good place to buy my own silicon hoses to replace some of the OEM ones? I would like to do this for 2 reasons, the overall look, and longevity vs OEM rubber hoses. I guess I was thinking along the lines of a samco hose kit.

I haven't seen or heard of any yet. I think it could make the look of the engine bay pretty nice! Let us all know if you find something, but it seems like the aftermarket parts line hasn't been very high for the 2nd gen 3.

I was thinking, how close is the coolant system for the 2010-11s to matching the 09s and under? I guess for the smaller hoses one could get a bulk order of silicone hoses. The strange part for me is I see these 2 long hoses that run the length of the radiator(from the reservoir) where do they go? Are there normal sized(like the large 2-2.5" upper and lower radiator hoses?
