Hoses from Scuderia Rampante Innovations - Never merely "consumer acceptable"
In the world of Ferrari parts, we sometimes get depressed at the ongoing struggle for quality in genuine parts from Maranello. Plastic that goes sticky, clutch bearings that burst (B), and electronics reminiscent of old British cars from the 50’s — it’s enough to make us shake our heads in disbelief.
But once in a while, we are presented with a solution that simply delights us. After many long months of design, prototyping and testing, our friends at Scuderia Rampante have released their series of silicone cooling and fuel hoses for Ferrari. There are not words to describe these hoses adequately. They are, without question, the most impressive hoses we’ve had in stock — whether by Ferrari or any other supplier.
Scuderia Rampante designed this hose to far exceed any street or track requirements for your Ferrari and to last multiple services if installed properly. This is not a “siliconized” consumer grade hose, this is 100% silicone, as good as it gets in every respect. Designed to look right in the Ferrari engine bay, the hoses are matte color with minimal labeling that is discretely hidden. Kits include all the major cooling or fuel hoses and silicone-safe clamps to ensure successful installation on several different models.

The buzz and excitement about these hoses had been building on FerrariChat for awhile, and since our announcement to the Ferrari community, they have been a great success.
Easier to Remove
Silicone hoses attach to the different components of the radiator more easily than rubber hoses. Additionally, they are less likely to stick to those components than their rubber counterparts, which can sometimes become bonded or attached to the various vents and ports on the radiator. Because of this, if you ever need to remove a hose after it has been in use for several months or longer, it's generally much easier to remove a silicone hose from your car's radiator than a rubber hose.
Requires Different Hose Clamps
The silicone hose walls are thicker than the walls of equally sized rubber hoses. The result is that, if you're replacing an existing rubber hose system on your vehicle with a silicone system, you will need to use the hose clamps that come with your Scuderia Rampante kit. The hose is considerably more stiff than standard rubber, so the clamps must be extremely tight -- use caution however when clamping onto a plastic radiator neck for example.
Bust Clutch Release Bearing?
Of course we have vastly improved clutch release bearings from Hill Engineering to solve this Ferrari problem too!
