    silicon hose vs hard pipe for turbo

    I've been trying to clean up a section pipe for my rear mount and I'm wondering if a section of pipe replaced with a long silicon hose would hurt anything? I'm trying to replace the hoop I made that goes over the front drivers wheel I have. I can't get shops to bend it like I want and I also want to put my wheel well shield back in.

    the hose is gonna be like 32"

    any suggests?

    If it is something akin to a radiator hose, they will withstand the pressure of a cooling system which is probably much more than your turbo's output. I assume you are talking on the pressure side?
