oil transmission cooler line for coolant?

Is there any particular reason I can't use reinforced oil  
transmission cooler line to replace the short section of hose that  
joins the metal pipes for the turbo coolant line?

It is thinner than the old line, same ID, but reinforced...so I'm not  
too worried about pressure.  Temperature shouldn't be a problem, as I  
would imagine transmission oil could hit temps equal or higher than  

I'm more concerned about long term chemical incompatibilities.  I run  
Pentosin blue, if it matters (phosphate/silicate/nitrate free.)
