If the rubber vacuum lines arent dry rotted and plastic block isnt cracked / leaking ... why replace anything.. factory lines / block work just fine

Vacuum lines are old.and cracked in spots. Not sure if I should use plain vacuum line or get silicone lines instead...
I replaced all my rubber vac. hoses with silicone hoses. I like to do things only once and never have to worry / think about having any problems with them ever again.

I bought the hoses off ebay they were dirt cheap and fast free shipping.

It's your car do what you think is best. :)
