I have a 1.5 feet hose from the engine exhaust
manifold to the elbow
. However the hose needs to make a tight curve to fit properly. I bought a new hose with wire reinforcement in it, cut it to size and spent three hours upside down in the engine
bay, wrestling the thing with no results. I took a heat gun to it and that did not really do much either. I ended up forcing it quite a bit and now there is a kink that I cannot get rid of. The kink maybe constricts the cross sectional area by 10%. My questions:
- any tips on getting wet exhaust
hose to bend properly?
- should I toss the kinked one and get a new hose?
- how are the $$$$ silicone wet exhaust hoses?
