... ic is in way of the power steering tubing which then gets in way of my ac condensor. So I need to cut part of the tubing out and replace it with a rubber hose. Would it be ok to do this?

And actually if its the coil going down by the ac condensor so I have to worry to much about the pressure rating on the hose? All I could find is heater hose :/

Heater hose will NOT work. Power steering lines need to be extremely high pressure. I have a section of rubber hose in my setup that is rated to 3,100psi.

Find a local heating-cooling place and they should have some high pressure hose for sale.

Actually , the hose that goes to the front of the car in front of the radiator is Low pressure, Heater hose still will not work , because ATF will eat it , you will need to get some Transmission cooler hose , I beieve it was 3/8" , I just routed the cooler line the other way on the G20 , to get it away from the intercooler ...
