Default IC hoses

Two questions:

1. Has anyone used hoses/couplers from http://www.siliconeintakes.com? Prices attractive, but how about the quality?

Need to couple 2.0" IC pipes to an Audi intercooler (058 145 805A). OD of the IC inlet/outlet is 53 mm (2.0 inches is 50.8 mm), which is ~2.2 mm larger than the IC pipes, and almost 3/16" smaller than a 2.25" coupler

2. How to connect??

Am installing the Audi intercooler in a Mk2 Jetta. Fit is close but clearances are sufficient. Now to get it connected!

I usually go for the next smaller hose size and stretch it over the bead, sometimes they do tear eventually though

ebay always has the best prices on generic silicone couplers, so long as you're buying chinese produced stuff, that is.
