Braided Hoses decorate up the engine bay and offer an increased protection of pipes. The braids are made of stainless steel and the ends are composed of anodized aluminum. These are resistant to extreme heat, pressure, abrasion, and corrosion. The installation is very simple, just disconnect any existing hoses and slide the steel braided hose kit over. These hoses are lightweight & flexible and their construction is multi-layered & kink-resistant.
