I'm going to replace all the hoses on my engine. Does the Skyline require upgraded heavy duty hoses for coolant, vacuum, or oil lines to turbos? I ask because the car sure as hell needs strong fuel lines - regular run of the mill hoses blew out on me twice from the fuel pressure.

What lines would you go to upgraded steel mesh hoses, etc?

Fuel lines shouldn't 'blow out' Mine are rated to 12bar. What pressure are you running? Does your relief valve actually work??

if you still have the factory built in oil cooler then you will need 3 custom bent large diameter coolant lines.

I really suggest you pull all the lines out and then order the ones that are custom bent.

all the vaccum lines though can be just remade with straight for the most part. There are just one or two on the wastegate actuators that make a 180 degree bend.
