    A barbed fitting should sovle the blow off. A presure relief valve can be used to reduce system pressure too.

    Mine is 1/2" pipe (hardline) from pump to the pressure relief, then hard line up to the back seat where it splits to braided. One braided line goes to engine water inlets, other goes to water control at steering wheel, then back to T valve and header.

    How exactly is the hose failing??? You shouldn't be going through braided line like that if its a quality product assembled correctly.

    If you are using braided hose you need to use an hose fittings not hose clamps. The braided hose dose not work well with hose clamps.

    On this same topic, ive seen some adjustable pressure regulators from Grainger and similar industrial supply, that can handle up to 300 PSI. Will they work? Also, what is the optimal PSI?

    Agreed. Ditch the pep boys kit.

    I run the blue hose with push on fittings.

    I remember My first beer!!
    Sorry, just had to do it!

    I have a gate valve between every component on my system, I'm a little paranoid about sinking also!

    Our hydro had a braided dump line with a hose clamp at the transom fitting when we bought it. I almost sunk it because of that.
    (I did not look at it first time out)

    Anyone running a hose clamp on a braided line is asking for trouble. (If that is his situation)

    Yes those will work. Try a search and you can see which parts are in use by others. If the motor is stock i would shoot for 15 psi max unless it has some mls gaskets in it, then if power requires you can go to 20-23psi.
