    Looking for options/sources for hose. I see that Good Vibrations has the Perosil hose. Also looking at what McMaster Carr has to offer. Any other options? Ideally I need something that will bend in a 2-1/2" radius without collapsing or kinking.......................

    Mesa hose has some NHRA approved hose in 1-1/4 good for puke tanks, I have used it as fuel line in places but don't think I would trust it on a tight radius. I have also used some type of chemical suction hose from Briggs Rubber that had some wire in it. The wire was made into the hose, not exposed internally. If I remember correctly the stuff I used was 1-1/2, it's possible that they may have it in 1-1/4 also. You could always try and find a piece of radiator hose with wire in it and change it yearly as the alcohol will eat the rubber. Hope this helps.

    Contact mesahose for the silcone style hose, its a pain to get on but is the best sealing hose on the market, and the clamps sold by mckinney corp are the absolute best option.
