Where to buy vacuum lines

Hey folks,

I wanted to find out where do you guys buy vacuum lines from online? Obviously all the vacuum lines that go down to the turbos have to be high-temperature rated or else they will melt and catch fire.

Ideally, I'd like to have braided ones.

Thanks in advance.

Try to find paper lines. The thinner sidewall the better. And make sure you dip in oil before putting on the car. You want the air going through them to be super well lubricated!

On second thought, get these from Amazon:

I have had custom turbo and factory turbocharged cars forever and this is the best hose I have ever used hands down. The connectors are okay too but typically I just use the hose. This stuff will not blow off, it is tougher than any other silicone hose I have tried and even in a rotary engine bay in South Texas it holds up for years.

If you search in this turbo section there is a thread about vacuum lines and has many links as well as many colors.

I chose red.
