Don't know about an "update", but some of the older cars, my '85 5kt for
example, used a metal pipe with a short piece of rubber hose.  Yes, this also
went bad, so other than the expense of that $50 hose, you're not gaining much

BTW, the rubber crankcase hose on my '86 5ktq lasted until 195k, so I wasn't
too upset to replace it.
