I don't know the brand, but there is a duratec kit somewhere. I had the upper and lower rad hoses for mine, but decided not to use them and sold them. one thing I have heard with silicone hoses is that you will need to get new good quality clamps for them. some of them are more likely to leak than the oem hoses. I've also seen at some big car shows that there was a company that will make custom hoses, although i'm sure it's not cheap.

If I was going to do some hose kit, I'd go for Samco hose's. Massive has the Zetec kit, but none for the D-tech's.

Was just peeking at Samco's website, and unfortunately they don't offer the D-tec kit directly through their website. However, they look like a more-than-capable shop that would be able to fabricate custom hoses for any setup. I would find another junkyard car that you could strip all the hoses off of, and send them to Samco to copy/fabricate. If we could ask them to put together a kit for the Duratecs, I'm sure there would be some members interested.

I'd maybe go for them. I'd go for a all alloy rad.1st. Next mods for me are either JBR= James Barone racing or Sure motor sports motor & trans mounts. 70, 80 or 88 durometers, I'd go for the 80's.
