so ive used
- fuel line
- high temp silicon hose.

looking at the line just have it a fair bit longer and head it straight up over the shock tower. then under the overflow bottle. so it's not going straight past the turbo

the hose is fatigue-ing/baking at the wastegate port and halfway past the turbo

im thinking about using a teflon stainless braided line ... because that will handle the heat

ill just get the ends to screw into the wastegate and tap the port on the turbo a tad larger to accomodate the screw part
