... this needs to be shared. APS Inlet Hose has been a nightmare to begin with. Not only was it horrible to install, it barely fits. Yes, we did get it to fit. Unfortunately, it rubs against one of the coolant lines. Well, after hitting a large enough pot hole, it whacked against it and leaked coolant over one of my pulleys which rusted and now squeaks (which is how I found out about the leak). Now I have a stupid leak to fix and maybe an inlet hose to replace.
On top of that, it also rubs against my intake manifold. Remember our intake manifold is metal. I suspect in a few months or so, I should also have to worry about a hole in the inlet hose. Before I ditch it completely, I will seek professional advice from my mechanic friend.
