I found this website that I believe could supply 90 degree turbo hoses. Turbo Hose — 90 Elbow — Silicone

Jerry:

I found two vendors on amazon.com, both selling for much less. Here's one X-Treme tape by Vypar:

http://www.amazon.com/TPEXZLB18-1X10...9710198&sr=8-2

Here's Rescue Tape, and it has free shipping on three rolls (orders over $25):

Here's Tommy Tape:

I just ordered the Rescue Tape in CLEAR, BLACK and RED and received free shipping. They also offer ORANGE, GREEN and BLUE.

I went to the site mentioned for elbows. I would be cautious if they are going to say pick your color. My elbows just got in from Purosil and I did order orange (500 degrees) but mine are not shinny like theirs.

Do we really need all these colors or are they so we can be fashionable like E Mike?

elbows

Ted III----well we all want to be like E-MIKE but lets be serious there is only I say ONLY one E-MIKE According to Purosil and the way I understand it--there should be more saftey in the orange one. (3648-400-mk 6in by 6in)

Jack & Josie, That's very true. Does anyone know if the color of the tape makes a difference. If not, then certainly I will purchase the orange. I am sorry to hear that your elbows are not shiny. A very cosmetic no-no, especially in the company that we keep.

And another blue elbow bites the dust. Must have split somewhere up around Eugene as I couldn't get more than 25 mph on the hills coming down Wednesday. Cummins in Medford is getting me the orange one and will install it next week. Oh well, could be worse.....

Dshogman---- just curious was it the blue one on the left side of the engine by the turbo and how many miles on your rig? How far did you drive at 25 MPH? I'm taking a 2000 mile trip next month and I have put the orange one on the left side but the one on the right top looks almost impossible. So with a spare in hand I could be forced to try it on the road if not I return home and still have the spare and keep putting it off.

Hsdogman----Forgot one thing--the one on the right on my rig does not fit right there is crease on the inside angle. You can't see it but you can feel it. Curious again if yours was like that. I think the elbow has to be trimmed back an inch so it won't buckle the angle it can only be pushed on both ends so far. Let us know what they do. Thanks Jack

It occurs to me from Jack's comments that the flex elbow is 2 things- 90 degree turn, plus flex joint so the parts can move as needed for engine vibe & road reactions.

On the ULSD models, they discontinued rubber 90's. We have straight, orange flex tubing reinforced w/a spiral metal wire on the outside. All bends are in the aluminum metal tube. So a full-on, industrial strength solution if you have ongoing problems w/the rubber elbow would be a close radius 90 degree metal tube, coupled on both ends w/straight flex tube. No more crimps or creases. You'd have to trim back the metal tube as needed to create the space.
Just a thought for those who don't have important things to do.

Jack - 42000 miles. The blue 90 degree one is on the left side at the turbo. It did not split at the bend but in one leg. Don't know anything about the others. We're putting the higher temp orange one back on next week. And at Mike's suggestion, I'm going to keep the blue one - suitably sealed and wrapped - as a back-up.

Between Medford and Eugene there are 3 or 4 summits. Each one was taken at 25 mph. Most were 2-3 miles although i think one was 5. I was getting passed by triples!!
