Default B21ft turbo water lines

1985 B21ft
Replacing water hoses on car. Are they just regular rubber water hoses or some sort of high temp ones that go to the turbo?

The stock stuff is available. I prefer to get some type of high temp coolant hose. A useful local choice is if you have a truck parts supplier nearby. they carry a lot of good heavy duty coolant hose at those places.

I use Gates 3/8" silicon for the hoses that go to the turbo from the factory T connections. Works great.

I would definitely go with something high temp. I had a hose leak a couple of times and it had to be repaired. There is a lot of heat in that area.

They have to be braided. 3/8" braided Viton will outlast the life of the vehicle.
