Default Available vacuum hose kits

If I am going to replace all vacuum hose with the kit, is Doc Rebuildís kit the only one that does not use the larger hose OD in their kit?
I do not see any upside to the larger OD hose. Thanks

I replaced every vacuum hose using kits from I think corvette America or corvette central.(canít remember) All hose were labeled and I got hose diagram cheat sheet. It was simple and painless. I was expecting a lot worse. Came with all the connectors and tees also. They matched up to my factory ones perfectly. Not sure about the kit you are getting but betting it is similar. I see no need to change some of the hose sizes. I have a 68 not sure what year you have.

For vacuum hoses I would use the doc rebuild hoses. Others will work but docs are far easier to work with.

I used a kit from Doc Rebuild. I was disappointed that the hose stripe colors were not correct, if that sort of thing bothers you.

I must admit, that would bother me.

I used the Corvette America kit on my 71 LS5 and was pleased with the fit and size. They may have been a slightly larger diameter on a few, but it was a very well fitting kit and the price was right. Everything was well labeled and sized correctly length wise for me.

I used Doc's kit and colors were right but I had bought it quite some time back. Didn't know he was selling ones with incorrect colors. Is this true?
