Hydraulic hose fix?

In the past, I've done this with the turbo coolant line on my MC engined
87 5KTQ. The compressed air line didn't last more than a year in that
heat. A piece of fuel line from the local parts store worked for many
years (till car was sold). Since this is the suction line, is wall
rigidity a concern?  (What replacement have people used before?)
