the bypass hose doesnt see that much pressure though. and its only being used when the thermostat is closed, which is prolly why it lasted so long

The upper radiator hose runs from the upper part of the radiator on the driver side to the thermo housing.

The bypass hose doesn't go to the thermostat it goes to the bottom of the intake directly from the waterpump.
