Default Mishimoto Radiator hose kit??

I am about to replace my water pump and coolant tank and was thinking wth might as well replace the hoses as well. Came across these and wanted to know yalls thoughts? Price seems really good, brand is Mishimoto. Thanks in advance! Also not sure why the hose kit is cheaper than one that only sales just the 2 lol

I put the complete package of Mishimoto on my '99 last fall when doing some engine work. (I used black since much of my underhood trim is in Firethorn Red). So far, very pleased; but, recognize 5 months is not a good durability test.
My son's shop has put Mishimoto hoses on many different cars for several years now and has never had a return. He has also built several "strong" Honda engines (800-1000hp) and has used the Mishimoto hoses on them; again, with positive results.
Plus, the lifetime warranty is good for some peace of mind.

Any tips on installing them, they look really good but the one that attaches to the tstat housing is pretty tough to put on. The other ones werent too bad putting on.
