Do some research on your choice of replacement, the readily available fuel injection hose most likely to be presented is not as good as the OE which if you look closely you'll note it appears to have a hard plastic inner liner pretty much like the A/C flex hose. The typical hose which looks like regular conventional fuel hose except for the high pressure rating does not weather well. I read over a thread a few weeks ago after looking up the specs on some extra FI hose I had laying around where after a few years use the hose was cracking on the outside as if it were part of a very old tire.

You need to use at least SAE30R9 hose.
