Where is the best place to get silicone radiator hose. also can i get the heater hoses in silicone if I wanted. I really only need the lower heater hose, but i might as well replace 'em all.

I wonder how much the hose would be from a boating supply place? Boats use silicone hoses, seen them in blue, red, the whole ****.

Black hose for me, but isn't it better if the hoses are pre bent or whatever?

I guess the real question is: DOES ANYONE MAKE PRE-FORMED SILICONE RADIATOR HOSE FOR THE FC'S.
