<5kcstq>I/C to manifold hose question

Hello All,
  Quick question for those with boost levels above stock. What are you using
for the I/C to manifold hose. I have blown out the hoses on both of my cars,
and am hesitant to spend $60-$75/ea for new hoses if they are going to blow
out as well. The boost levels I am seeing are 1.7 to 1.8 bar on the dash
gauge. I suspect the pressure is well above that when the throttle snaps
shut. A turbo bypass valve is a possibility, but I don't know how to plumb
it. I would expect it would go from the upper I/C hose to the turbo intake
hose. If anyone has suggestions, I would love to hear them.
