CAn this be done? I read that these have the strength and heat resistance to handle the job (as opposed to standard coolant hoses). Any comments.

Alot of people use truck radiator hose for couplers and bends. Its cheap and it works fine, just not as pretty.

You can try big truck dealerships, some NAPA stores have industrial parts, truck parts stores. I'd look in your yellow pages under Truck, you'll find plenty I'm sure.

thats where i got my hoses. you can ask them for a short length that they might have laying around. paid ~15 bucks for a 2-3 ft. section.

i used it to connect my boost tubesand i/c together. alot cheaper and as effective as silicone connectors. its real thick/strong radiator hose for big rigs, my hoses are made by Gates.
