Heat/AC Large Hose From Blower to Cowl

Hi guys,

What have people done to either replace the large (5") flexi hose that connects the blower to the cowl
or insulate around it?

Henry, with the clam off, ponder some AC and heater mods


I used some silicone tubing from ebay and a small ring to link the two 90s

Increased flow a tiny bit

insulation wise, a bit of foil faced foam is about all you can do anyway

Henry --

I have an '05 Elise, and about a year or so ago, in the course of having some other work done, had the Lotus Insulated Plenum to Heater Hose (A124P0025F) -- as fitted commencing with 2007 model year cars -- installed. It seemed to make a difference, and as I recall, was installed without the clam.
