Default Benefits of Radiator Hoses?

Do aftermarket radiator hoses do anything except dress up the engine bay? I know the pressure caps raises it to 1.3 instead of 1.0 for cooling purposes (not sure if I actually feel it working...lol)

Comments?

EDIT- If I do get them....Red, Blue, Black or Yellow?

looks, thats about it, it may change the thermal resistance a little, but not enough for you to go out and dance in the streets. If you want it to cool things down just get a larger radiator
