Samco bpv hose replacement! Please look
 
5 Attachment(s)
I did some research to figure out how I can replace my aging BPV hose and fix the leak that I had. I have seen a lot of awesome engine setups as simple as Hicksta's or as wild as LALGT and I think for them this would be a great alternative like it was for me. This SAMCO hose was made for the 08+ WRX but because the WRX has the same setup as 05+ LGT it works well. This hose will work with your stock top mount, AVO, PERRIN, IPR, Process West, and even front mount setups like my RacerX. With a FMIC it was kinda a PITA to mate the OEM BPV hose to the BPV because it was unforgiving and hard to stretch properly but with the SAMCO hose it worked really well because it is silicone.
I'm sure that everyone has heard of Roger Clark Motorsports (RCM) in the UK because they have built the craziest subarus in the UK, more notebly THE GOBSTOPPER. I hope this helps you guys out and I emailed RCM telling them that they are going to get a some orders from my fellow LegacyGT.com members. I ordered my hose on a thursday and got to me on monday from overseas to CALI from UK.

I appreciate the shoutout man :D!!! I figured it was made for an 08+ WRX after doing a little reading up on it. I'll definitely shoot Tim and email and will scoop one up assuming I can get it in black ;)

Thanks for the heads up! I thought it might be Samco. I'm going to try and snag a black one as well since I have a hole in the end of my OEM from the worm clamp so I had to fold it over onto itself to seal. :D

Samco doesn't offer this here in the states?

I've been doing some searching, and I haven't been able to find it anywhere.

Awhile back I found on Samco's UK website that they make hoses for the 5th Gen GT. Their part number was not published on the US website. I called Rally Sport Direct, gave them the part number, they checked and could get it, so this stuff is available, it just takes digging.

They should have some, I know I got the last blue one they had in stock

Wow great find!! How difficult is this to install? It's been a while since i've taken a look at this hose. I'd love to replace my 160k hose just for sake of easing the mind lol.

Its not that hard just time consuming depending on the setup you have. I think it would take longer if you had the stock top mount but would be easier to swap everything if your already doing a aftermarket turbo inlet or TGV deletes
