The hard bends in the stock hose always end up cracking and leaking, but since the water pump thermostat assembly is tucked up above the subframe, it can be difficult to pinpoint the leak. When you upgrade your OE rubber hose to the ECS aluminized silicone hose, you don't just get a longer lasting, more flexible hose, but also one that's better suited to withstand high underhood temperatures. We use silicone because of its more pliable nature as well as its resistance to heat. The next step was wrapping it with aluminum to offer further protection from the exhaust system.

If you live in an apartment or you can't get your car up on ramps or stands but want to change your oil, then this is exactly what you need. This tool enables you to drain from the dipstick tube and refill like normal, without getting under the car or fighting with drain plugs. Not only is it convenient it's also efficient: most cars leave oil in the pan when being drained from the plug—sometimes up to a half quart. The extractor, however, can reach this remaining broken down fluid to make room for even more uncontaminated lubricant. Extract the extra work from the job.

Misfires, poor idling, and general poor engine performance can be remedied with one of two kits.
