First legitimate failure....

Secondary air pump hose is basically the consistency of tar and it failed on the engine-side, probably a slow leak on the timing cover gasket

Buying 5' of replacement hose on McMaster Carr for 10 bux instead of spending 45 + core charge on the OEM hose

Where the heck is there a core charge for a rubber hose?

now people on the boards are telling me not to do silicone because they tend to collapse easily and that I should spend $40 on a different one with no core charge

It's a hose that runs through a very hot, cramped part of the engine bay and the stock one has lasted over a decade.

why would you trust something else which might not be the correct material or size over a trivial amount of money?

having to swap it out twice will cost you far more in time and money than doing it right the first time. and that's if nothing additional goes wrong from using the wrong part.

I'm sure this is going to be the only problem you have with the car this year, so good thing you got that out of the way.
