Did they really use radiator hose with worm clamps for the induction system in a car that starts at $150K? Unfortunately, yes. And they’re displayed front and center - the first thing you see when viewing the engine compartment. RV6 was approached by longtime friend and colleague Chad Gilsinger from Honda of America Racing Team (HART). They were having issues with those radiator-style hoses popping off on the track and needed a solution. RV6 got to work on something as elegant as it was functional. 

No corners were cut. The first thing to go were the squishy radiator-style hoses known to expand and contract under boost and vacuum. Oil-resistant 4-ply kevlar reinforced hoses were put in their place. As for the tubes that sit atop the engine, something special was needed. Solid carbon fiber pieces were used instead; designed with the latest CAD/CMM modeling to ensure a perfect fit and optimal fluid dynamics. Custom constant tension spring-loaded T-bolt clamps were built specifically for this kit by a USA manufacturer. To round out the kit, carbon fiber reinforced couplers are used to allow for engine movement. 

These parts have been tested under real world racing conditions in Chad’s GT-2 NSX and function perfectly without a hitch. Chad reports improved boost response and boost threshold from the solid components that do not balloon and expand like the OE ones.
