Catch Can hoses

I just bought a BT catch can from a member on here and want to know what are the "proper" hoses to use. I bought heater hoses and it's hooked up, just want to make sure they'll work. They're definitely much more flexible than the tube that came off.

you may have trouble - they can degrade - make sure you use silicone, & heavy walled at that a they can collapse under vacuum

I've got the heater hoses installed and no problem so far. I think I'll just put the original pvc hose back on and order some of the pretty braided lines.

The originals that would've come with the catch can? I think I'll get the pretty black braided line w/chrome end parts. That's kinda my "theme"-black and chrome. Just got the chrome catch can and the K&N Typhoon is chrome with black connectors and filter.

Do yourself a favour and visit BT's website, where they have a u-tube video about the hoses for their catch-can. This movie clearly show what happens when you use a hose that's not stiff enough to support the strong vacuum created when you have WOT. Under full vacuum, they collapse on themselves, reducing the flow, with obvious consequences... My advice is to use the hoses that came with the catch-can you purchased (don't use heater hoses) or simply ring the good people at BT and get them to send you some new ones with pretty aluminium collars for both ends.

DAYCO Y108 AIR BRAKE HOSE 01 THS 102409A 1/2 DOT TYPE A SAE J1402A MADE IN USA.

Measuring them they appear to be in imperial size 1/2" bore x 7/8" external diameter.

Hope this helps.
