Your B4U has the dual trans cooler, just like the 9C1's. The green hoses, are orange on the inside. They are silicone, and should never wear out. That's what is so special about them. looking for a set? I have a set I'm looking to get rid of. PM me.

What is so great about the 9c1 hoses the green ones ...?
They last forever and also NEVER bond to metal parts so they are easy to remove without damaging them. The only reason I can come up with as to why they are not standard equipment on all cars today is that hose and belt manufacturers would go out of business, as there would be no damand for replacement hoses.

"a guy in my nieborhood trying to sell me some for 10 bucks but i think they are kinda ugly cant they be died, anything to change the color."

Given that they are an ugly color, you should definitely not use them.

in his defence i get tired of people asking are those garden hoses?


but they are the best, period....i blew up the blue ones from good year.

i even had a fan rubbing on one for 3000 miles and it didnt wear through....i replaced it just incase but any other hose 300 miles of that fan spinning on the hose you would of be stuck somewhere.

Not to get too far off topic but, Whats the diff between B4U and 9C1? What are the H.P. & Torque stats for these cars?
I knew a cop that said they had 335 HP w/ 4.11 gears. True?

False. AFIK, the power ratings for the LT1's were identical: 260hp, 330lb-ft. B4U's all had 2.93:1 gears and HD cooling with mechanical primary fans, and all B4U's were LT1-powered. 9C1's had the 4.3L L99 V8 with 3.23:1 axle standard (200hp, 245lb-ft), and the LT1 optional. All LT1 9C1's were equipped with 3.08:1 axle and extra capacity cooling with dual electric fans. The 9C1 drivetrain is identical to the Impala SS's.
