White is a tough one, I've used Mishimoto hoses in the past and they work great but I don't know if they have white. They have a colored Vacuum hose kit, and a colored coolant hose kit. I've only seen them in red/blue but the fit great and look very clean.

Oh and Welcome to the forums, Lots of people here who are passionate about Subarus and more passionate about helping other drivers. Cheers

I haven't seen direct fit white hoses for our cars ever and I've been searching for all kinds of crap over the past four years for all my wrx's.
Maybe give samco an email and see what they can do for ya.

Haven't seen white, sounds like it would be hell to clean anyway.

The only thing I can add is try to stray away from a unknown name for hoses.
I went with a unknown name brand colored hose kit in my 02 and after a while the coolant reservoir hoses became very flimsy and when removing my engine they basically just pulled right apart from connections.
I had a blue hose kit and it was kinda hard to keep clean.
Oil blow-by was another problem that seemed to discolor the hose as well but you have a 014 so I doubt you will have that issue.

Good luck man.

I'd worry about white turning yellow.

I was looking for hose clamp kits and I ran across this...http://www.nolimitmotorsport.com/samco/apps.html

Have fun.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.
