Default What kind of hose?

There are several different "rubber" sleeved SS hoses that do not need an additional sleeve. What are you using?

The outer coated fuel line I used is coated but I believe it is just for abrasion, everything firewall forward received fire sleeve.

Yep its integral firesleeved hose. Actually AE246 Aeroquip. Dont know whether its the angle of the picture or not, but I hope it not resting on the the exhaust. Even integral firesleeved hose can be damaged by exhaust heat over time.
