Getting this replaced but just wondered why would this pipe be gone all soft and splitting ( I was losing turbo pressure )
Garage is rerplacing the pipe but I'm always thinking if a problem arises then is there an underlying fault? Is there too much boost being generated perhaps or does this pipe just degrade over time, Santa fe is 2006 new model.

That hose should be designed for the pressures involved, plus a safety margin - it actually contains slightly less pressure then the pipe between the turbo and the intercooler due to its cooling effect.

I'd guess it's just natural ageing but might have been hastened by damage during servicing or from frontal impact damage.
