Looks good. Where could I get some of those blue tubes. I have the small ones like that in my engine bay but can't find the big ones like that. Thanks

Regular auto stores should have the tubing in different sizes. Ive gotten small and large ones at Autozone and Orielys.

As for the OP, did you modify the hose any? IT was on the fan shroud the begin with, correct? I just offed my intake for a single "(CAI)" tube, to clean up room. Id like the pump there to give the bracket a purpose, since it cannot be removed really.

Did you use the original hoses, or change them to another one? Mine looks to be a molded hose that I dont think will let me move it.

No mods to the hoses or anything, just simply unbolted it from the fan shroud location and moved it to the bracket, used all the original mounting bolts and everything. There were no kinks on the hose and theres about 1" of clearance from the belt. The hose covers are from Autozone, but Advance, O'reilly's also have them.

Is your hose molded (hard) ?
