Q: vacuum hoses

asked by on

I'm changing my vacuum hoses. What's the difference between the hoses with high psi's like 1000 and 1250, and the ones that have low psi's like 300?
My car has a manual transmission.

I wouldn’t be concerned with PSI rating in regards to vacuum hoses. Vacuum hoses for automobiles are very generic, and anything that is called a vacuum hose should work.

Good luck!
