Default ALH Turbo Outlet Hose ?

Hello, I am in the process of cleaning up the turbo hoses and pipes on my Vanagon Conversion. My intercooler has 2 inch fittings. The outlet of the turbo is around 1.5 inches. The hose I have is a 90 degree elbow. I think it is a cut down radiator hose I found around the shop. I'd like to replace it with a silicone type hose and go up from 1.5 inches at the outlet to 2 inches as I leave the turbo after the 90 degree bend. Currently I have a 1.5" exhaust pipe with the end expanded to 2 inch by a local muffler shop to connect to the intercooler. Any body run into this? Can someone point me to a supplier? Searching the internet yields bigger hoses than the ALH uses. Every other hose and bellow I need, I have been able to locate locally. Thank you Mark

I thought the turbo outlet was something smaller then 1.5" I think its 1" & 3/8"

I bought a SS transition from these guys because they are nice and and gradual: http://www.verociousmotorsports.com/...lector-Reducer

Something like that could work for the transition. The problem I have is my engine is layed over 50 degrees. What would be the driver's side engine mount is very close to the turbo outlet. I need a flex 90 to bend away from the block. I then have a metal tube with a 45 and then a 90 to get up to the intercooler. I could use a regular silcone 90 off the turbo, and then weld in the reducer once I am pointed away from the block. I have seen some reducer/enlarger silcone 90's, just not for a small application like the TDI. The outlet might be 1 3/8ths. I may be using the rubber hose and clamps to make up the difference of the 1/8th inch. So to anyone else reading this, I am still looking for a silicone 90 with different sized ends. Thank you for the link to the SS reducer. mark

Well this site was my last hope. On to plan "B". I can get a conventional 90 degree elbow and then change diameters on the tube as close as I can to the Turbo. I should verify the turbo outlet diameter first. There is a flange to keep the hose from coming off, I need to measure behind it. Thank you for the link to Samco and for the SS reducers. Regards.
