So what do you think of the idea to just wrap the OEM hoses. Should not be too hard. I think that Si tape will work just fine. It is pretty durable and wrapped around an OEM hose will just make it stronger. Post pics when you start doing it.


Ya I thought about that, seems like it'd work fine. The only thing I can think that may go wrong with that idea is the tape may shrink to much?? They make fiberglass reinforced tape so you can still add 3 more ply. I'd think the burst psi of a factory molded hose is going to be grater then that of a single play hand made hose.... So in turn a factory molded hose with 3 ply of extra reinforced silicone "I think" will much stronger the a 100% hand made hose..
