[turbobike] discharge hose

Has anyone had any luck with flexible intake hose between the turbo and
plenum instead of aluminum tubing and silicone?

The hose in particular I am speaking of is brown with a tan cord around it.
It has a spring sewn into it with a smooth lining. Airtech sells it I
believe. I've been using it already but I wanted feedback from others.

When you bend the hose, it wrinkles up in the bends. I am worried about
excessive pressure drop because mine has two rather sharp bends in it.
Would like to use hard tubing but I am really tight on space.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
