Quality vacuum line???

Any recommendation for a good quality vacuum line? The cheap plastic tubing that came with my boost gauge is trash and local part stores just have more of the same. I was looking for something similar to the harder factory lines.
Thanks

Thanks! Have you ever used this before? The push on fittings etc are new to me.

Would yall use this stuff in the cab for gauges etc as well or just get some silicone tubing?

For a mechanical vacuum/boost gauge I use the nylon tubing with brass ferules. And for the remaining vacuum lines I use standard vacuum tubing from the parts store.

I use ptfe hose which has a much higher temp range then nylon.

Quick disconnect fittings FTW!

Thanks for the replies. I temporarily used some basic line from the local auto parts store like Throttle Jockey mentioned. But I'd like to do a complete vacuum line overhaul and really like the FORE setup. Are the push lock connections fairly reliable?

they're very reliable, and for R&R of things they go on and off really easily, vs. pushing a hose over a barb and possibly ripping the connection.

Everything was laid out pretty well on FORE's website, but it seems to be down at the moment.
