Hey guys,

I heard back from the supplier with the availability and costs on the group 
purchase. First, the pricing. It will be $200 for both hoses (michelin man 
and the turbo to intercooler hose) along with the proper clamps (5) to go 
with them and shipping is included. The clamps aren't super fancy T bolt or 
constant torque or anything like that that I've heard people talk about when 
installing these hoses. They are regular clamps...the type with blue 
(plastic?) right at the tightening point. The clamps w/ this blue don't dig 
into the hoses like the clamps w/o the blue (personal experience here). I 
had the fancy clamps as supplied in the first group buy but have since 
replaced w/ the type of clamp included in this kit. They are plenty adequate 
even for high HP cars but you can replace them w/ whatever you chose and 
recycle these clamps to some other project if you wish. If you check ECS 
tuning's site you'll find that they sell the set of hoses for $259 (not 
including shipping or clamps) so I think it is a pretty good deal.

Second, availability. The hoses I found are in stock so we do not have to 
wait 6-8 weeks for them to be made to order. They can be shipped as soon as 
I can collect all the money and write one big check for the whole lot. 
However, only 8 sets are available. There are 2 blue, 2 black, and 4 red 
sets. It will be strictly first come first served on this deal so email me 
if you want in and specify your color preference in order from 1st to 3rd. 
If one color isn't acceptable to you for some reason, and you wouldn't want 
to be in on the deal should that be the color you get, please say so in the 

Once I've got the first 8 people I'll email you back to let you know what 
color you will get and my address to send the money.

And of course, I don't stand to gain anything from this yada yada yada.

Hey guys,

I've seen some chatter on other forums about limited or no availability of 
Samco hose sets. So, I thought I'd put out some feelers to suppliers to see 
if I could scare any up from any of the non usual suspects. I found some and 
am working on GB pricing and how many they have. I expect to hear back soon 
w/ that info and will post it once available. I ran the GB on these a year 
or two ago and am happy to arrange another one for the listers here. More to
