I just took off my front hose (85 Monte) and noticed that it is scuffed up from being too close to the tail pipe. There isn't really no way around it due to my dual exhaust. Is there come kind of sleeve or material I can put over the hose so that it doesn't get too hot?

If your frmae isn't wrapped then you can run the hose inside the rails. If it is, then just run them along the rails. When you get to the rear of the frame where the subframe is (by the trailing arms) then just run the hoses against that. It shouldn't be anywhere close to the exhaust but, if it still is then just do what everyone else said and get the insulating tape or heat shield.

Thanx fellas. I think I'm gonna run it along the frame. Should I use zip ties to hold it in place? What should I do with the excess amount of hose if it is too long? Can I hide it somewhere like under the trunk?
