Does anyone know how many metres of silicon hose I will need.
I am going to get the 4mm stuff from PFS to replace the vacum hoses that are there but I am unsure of how much.
I have cruise control fitted aswell.
cheers,
Deano.

Just over 10m if you want to go the whole hog (inside the cabin and the engine bay). More if you want to do the washer hoses too!

deano, urs 16v or 8v?
it depends, 8v's need less hoses as well.it does matter whether its a turbo or a NA
i did mine with 15 feet of 4mm hoses. 16v LPT

It is a 16v FPT with lucas FI. I would be looking to do the washer hoses aswell so how much do you think overall.
Cheers,
Deano.

if with the washers as well i think 20-25feet of vacumm hoses should be sufficient. better to have some spares.
