Think the bomb pressure hose is ~ $100, the PS hose is at least half again 
as much.  Return lines are a bit less.

I was under the impression that the synthetic 11S provided more reasonable 
pressures in COLD circumstances because it flowed better in lower 
temperatures, so it was less likely to blow out O-rings that had gotten 
brittle with age and exposure to high temps.

They both pour much like water... as I recall, the lower temp range for both were the same, it was the higher temp range that increased with 11S.
