    why 3sx did not get my business...this time.

    hey guys, just a heads up, after HOURS of internet searching, i found distributors for purple radiator hoses & intercooler couplers. turns out they're SAMCO brand. i would have bought them from you without batting an eye, but you don't even have the option on your website.

    p.s.

    calling you guys directly isn't an option from the sandbox.

    Yeah, Samco makes other colors. But they are impossible at best to get for the 3S application. We've tried like orange or something and it takes about 4-6 months to get in from Samco in the UK. Thus we don't offer them, saves everyone the headache. Sorry we didn't actually have EVERYthing on the planet for the 3S!

    Ya, samco sucks for all their colored parts. We did a big order of dsm hoses in all different colors, 6 months later we had half of them, then a month later got the last group of them, better off buying the hard pipes and getting them powder coated to match if you want color.

    i'm willing to wait on color. that's why i bought my FMIC with regular black couplers; i'll swap them out when i get the samco's in. afaik, it's 4-6 weeks, not months.

    i just thought it would have been nice to have the option to buy color if i was willing to wait on them (which i am).

    austin, the reason i didn't do that was because chrome pipes would have put too much "shiney" in the bay. purple pipes would have put TOO much purple in the bay (and it would have been hard to color-match). i think this will work out well when it's all said and done; all I have to do is swap out the couplers when the stuff arrives.
