Post Boost gauge hose?

I'm hooking up a gauge pod with EGT, boost and fuel presser. These are autometer gauges and the boost gauge comes with a hard clear tube(but still flexible). Now I was just wanted to know if I could just zip tie silicon vacuum tubing to the back of the gauge and use that to run it in to the engine bay?

The question is why? That small white tubing is really easy to run neatly from your gauge out to your engine bay. Plus its sure to last a long time.

I've "heard" that it's not a good idea to use that stiff-wall clear tubing, but to use flexible tubing instead. It's easy to crimp the clear tubing, making it useless. Use the silicon tubing that you mentioned.
