I think you’ll find that some of the pre-curved small hoses work better than bulk hose, for applications like the thermostat elbow for example. A cut bulk hose will likely kink and close off the hose (ask me how I know this).

Gates #20338 did the trick for me in that regard. Also, the small hoses that connect to the oil filter cooler were Gates 20338, and a few other places.
That hose by the thermostat was replaced it looks like. I suspect they replaced it when they did the timing belt back in 99 before the fuel system crashed.
