    VR6 Coolant/Rad hoses 2.8/2.9

    Hi

    Recently had a split pipe issue. So I've solved that, just don't trust the reliability.

    So I was looking at silicone hoses, for the 2.9 it's pricey but for a 2.8 MK3, mega cheap and good quality. My question is, anyone know or tried the 2.8 silicone hoses on the 2.9? I know it's basically the same but the bulk heads and that are different. I've ordered some pipes for £55 but wanted to start the topic for some opinions.

    When they arrive I'll have a butchers

    I think they're the same. Interested in your thoughts on them

    I thought the radiator was different on a mk3 so the hoses that connect to the radiator are different?

    Can confirm MK3 Golf hoses don't fit, top rad hose is definitely different, not too sure on any others
