Subject: [urq] Silicone intake hoses

I blew the turbo->IC hose at UPG last year (no fun driving 1K miles home
with no boost!) so I added a bypass valve to help relieve the stress of
boost spikes.  That wasn't enough, because I blew the IC->TB hose at WOT
on one of the straights at Barber Motorsports Park.  I was able to
repair it with some creative engineering, but I still need a new hose.
Audi wants more than $200 for this thing, and it'll eventually get
soaked with oil mist and fail again.

Dialynx tell me they have silicone replacements.  Has anyone seen one of
these or heard of about the quality?  If I go this route, I may look
into a group buy deal if there's interest.
