I'll have a spare set of lines with me next time

  Hmm, first a spare boost tube, now carry spare injector lines.  At this 
sometime next year you'll be towing a spare Vanagon behind you!  :-D
  Hopefully it was just a fatigued line.  Usually it's because of missing 
clamps but since all 3 of yours were there then it leaves fatigue, since 
everything else was tight too.
   Bummer, kind of like my maidedn voyage with the Dasher.  Made it 
to Seattle and then about 2 hours from home and blew the front out of 
the headgasket!  Turned out the PO had cracked both front, block bolt 
holes.  :-P  When it heated, it lifted the head at the front and blew 
that section clean out!  Limped to the nearest town and called Dad.  
Luckily you just pull a few 10mm head nuts, lift the front bumper and 
slip on the tow bar!  :-)
