The hose I got maybe about 6 wks ago is slightly different than the one that came off the car. Maybe mine is still the v6 hose. It appears it will have no problem routing and mating up fine but just doing a test fit the metal bracket might not be in the same place as the previous one. I will know for sure when I attach the hose to the rack but wanted to get some opinions upfront. I actually have some nice thick wire ties as well as regular standard ones and wondering if there is no place to probably drill a hole for the bolt of the new hose if in fact it doesnt mate up to the same location, might wire ties suffice as keeping the hose steady?
