I guess to get an accurate idea what's going on I should have looked into the back story.

The line is specified for high temperature and pressure. It's not an unreasonable application. Did you actually take the time to look up the part number on the hose and not look up the specification?

Am I rushing out to go this route? No. But there are certainly more absurd things going on miataturbo.

I actually did to make sure it wasn't low-pressure fuel hose.
