Radiator Hose Kits

So I was bored at work and decided to look up Silicone Radiator Hose Kits and this one jumped out. http://www.sparktecmotorsports.com/s...tm_content=pla
So I'm wondering if the Zetec and Duratec cooling systems are the same?

No man. They are different. I now there are silicone rad hoses out there for the Dtec, but I haven't seen a whole kit.

That kit should be a duratec kit from what I have seen.
I have found them before on ebay for cheaper but havent been able to justify $200 on new hoses that "may work".
According to the half a** compatibility chart it says it will so if it don't that should be on the seller and not the buyer but anyway here is an example
ebay search: mzr silicone hose
and you get stuff like this

A hose is a hose. I'm guessing the "upgrade" benefit is minimal.
