Mishimoto radiator hoses

Iím gonna be flushing my coolant system soon so I figure I might as well change out the hoses too. I saw Mishimoto makes a silicone hose kit that has a lifetime warranty and supposedly gives better burst resistance than rubber. Anyone use these?

I upgraded my hoses with Mishimoto over a year ago. I bought the top hose that goes around the serpentine belt.
The Mishimoto hoses are very heavy duty. They are worth the money. I also installed replaced the thermostat housing with Riffraff Diesel 7.3L Billet Thermostat Housing.

The price is $216 for two hoses which cost under $100 for Motorcraft brand and $60 for Gates.

I guess I am still not understanding this but are Powerstroke owners having issues with the conventional rubber hoses bursting under pressure? My original hoses were replaced at 180,000 miles as preventative maintenance and had zero indication of being worn out.

If not then this just seems like a waste of money...although I do like the Blue ones.

Yeah, the price tag on the Mishimoto hoses is ridiculous. But the colored stuff can dress-up the engine bay nicely. DieselSite makes a decent pair of hoses as well, but price is even higher than Mishi's (they come in any color you want, as long as it's black).

My original hoses lasted well over 150K, never had a lick of trouble, but were due for a change, so I went with the DieselSite hoses (when I put in the Mishimoto radiator @ 205K). Also, I'm running the T444 water pump, and DieselSite makes/sells a molded lower hose specifically for that application (I had the pump on mine long before they were offering their "kits" for the T444 pumps).

It's to bad Ford doesn't make a "sever duty" silicone hose for other applications, like they do for their Police Interceptor vehicles (Crown Vic's & Explorers). They'd probably sell...

If I hadn't already replaced my hoses recently with Gates, then those blue ones would be awfully tempting.
