[s-cars] GP for Samco Hoses, Update and Inut needed!

Two reasons- under high boost, the hose tears and/or blows off and
the second reason is that the oil in the system causes the stock rubber
hose to tear.

Considering that the Samco hose only costs a tad more than OEM, I don't
see why anyone would buy OEM.

Just wondering--the motivation to go through that trouble with the upper
IC hose is...what? Surely it's more than the decorator colors, right?
What's the downside to using the oem MM hose, which I believe ought to
last something near 100k miles? Do I grossly overestimate its longevity?
