Does this "The hose goes bad from the inside out because of electrolysis within the engine that goes on because of the dissimilar metals in the engine and the coolant." ...mean there is no modern hose that is heat resistant that is fiberglass reinforced that would not last 10+ years?

There are some better hose materials out there no doubt...The size is like 12mm ID, but you could match it up with something better ...J

10 years out of a hot rubber hose seems fair to me too. 🤷‍♀️

Silicone hose is basically indestructible. I use it when im replacing any vacuum hose on BMW's or Porsches i work on. BMW, by far, has the 80,000 mile coolant hose explosion. The aftermarket has options out there. But for this little hose, I would just get bulk silicone hose.

Yeah I would just replace that small hose. I would take it to the local industrial hose shop and say "give me 4 inches of the best hose you got!" No matter how much it costs Lol. And it would be nice if its steel braided too.

Really, it seems like they could have made that pipe rigid all the way across. Theres no flexing between cylinder heads.
