... the other advantage of including a length of metal hose in this area is
that it can handle the heat of that turbo, which sits on the other side of
the hose from the headlight connectors, only a few inches away.  I've
fashioned an insulator to protect the soft hose that is now installed.  This
hose never has to deal with anything greater than atmospheric pressure, but
the turbo heat cooks and then cracks the factory hose ... and may also take
a bit of the flex out of your vulco hose ...
