Hose Candy is a quick-coupler system that converts any vacuum or turbo hose connection into a quick disconnect setup with CNC quick-couplers available in a variety of colors. Depending on the number of vacuum/turbo hoses, which includes any air intake systems, vacuum-advance mechanisms, EGR fittings, evaporative emission controls, MAP sensors, crankcase breathers, boost controllers, even wiper systems, installation is both quick and easy. Hose Candy even works for the VIP community as a great alternative to replace those ugly lines for your pneumatic airbag controls. The possibilities are endless!

Hose Candy is available in two kits: basic (9 to 18 hose kit) and master (18 to 36 hose kit), which includes over 100 fittings to allow for custom installation options. Hose Candy’s comprehensive quick-coupler kit includes a special modular design with CNC-rotating collars, rubber vacuum and barb adapters, modular snap-lock fittings, elbows, straights, couplers, plugs, reducers, unions, tees, and more for all common hose sizes.

CNC couplers are available in black, red, blue, gold/yellow, and silver with soon-to-be-released colors in green and purple. This kit is more than just making your engine bay “pretty”. The color-coded CNC fittings are not only visually stunning, they’re designed to be leakproof by providing a positive seal, withstand high underhood temperatures, and rated to hold up to 125 psi of pressure. The Hose Candy CNC aluminum rotating collars permanently snap onto modular hose ends and can be custom formed in dozens of different configurations. This ingenious coupler design simply connects and disconnects with a with half a twist of your finger and thumb, helping to minimize broken fittings or barbs during removal while allowing vacuum and pressure gauge readings to be taken in seconds to make diagnosing engine problems quicker and easier.
