Another CCV question

I was talking with a guy at work and he had to replace a line that went from his turbo on his 19dicketydoo Dodge Daytona. and we were talking about doing the ccv mod on my truck and what i had read on here about what guys were using to do it with. He suggested hydrolic hose since its oil resistant. There is a place in Kansas City that you can go and have hoses made to length or just buy plane hose. He had to have them make a hose for his car, but the thing about most hydrolic hoses is they are stiff and cant be hose clamped because of the wire inside of them.....However in his search this place has a light hydrolic hose with no wire and can be cinched with a hose clamp. Should withstand the heat i would think as well. Same hoses used in our construction equipment engines and they get really hot. Any reason why that couldnt be done? they have them in different sizes also.

Where did you run it to? Does it give off any smoke?

I think at first he just dropped it down towards the tranny. I dont remember if he ran it back or not....I THINK....
Most of what ive read, is running them all they way down the frame to rear axle area. and zip tie it up as you go.

I ran it down the passenger side engine compartment and out behind the front passenger side wheel well, zip tied it up along the frame rail back towards the rear axel.. it does give off smoke, but not until up to full operating temps.

I was worried about the oil rotting the line, but i guess that would probably take a while. Any info on that? I guess its not a big deal just a cheap fix if it was to rot through anyway.
