Boost gauge hose

I noticed that I have a small hole in my hose about 8" from the port on the intake elbow. Can I just put a coupling in here, or do I have to replace the whole hose? I ask because of the heat under the hood, and my gauge pod clips are not reusable

Thanks

You probably could a compression coupling to repair it. If I remember correctly I think its 1/8'' tubing. When I first ran my tubing it got melted by the turbo so I put wire loom around it and its been good since.

I haven't personally but It should work. When I tapped my banks elbow I used a compression fitting and it holds 35+ lbs of boost.

They use the same fittings as I got from isspro in plumbing water and it can hold 80+psi. The weak link will be the tubing. I wouldn't hessitate to put a coupling in it. If you are concerned about looks then just splice it behind the firewall and run some new tubing to the intake elbow. Might try to ziptie it out of the way or protect it from the heat in the future though.
