You cannot do that.It will kink and restrict flow.You must purchase the correct formed hose for that.In an emergency you can use a much longer piece of hose and loop it around without bending it.
Reply to Michael's Post: there is no way to mold a rubber hose?
Not without special equipment.Even if you had the dye's you would have to have the hose specs and heat it to the correct temp without destroying the hose.You can buy flex hose at NAPA or run a stainless steel tube inside the hose bent with a tubing bender.By the time you do that you may as well buy the correct hose.The steel tube trick is used often with modified cooling systems where there is no hose available for the application.
