The new hose was very stiff and difficult to bend so required some bench-top configuring to get all the turns correct. The pop rivet for the locator tab popped as soon as the hose was installed requiring removal, drilling out the old rivet, and replacing it with a slightly heavier rivet. Bolt on was easy from there.

Fit like a glove once I figured out the top had a slot it slid into to hold it in place. Kind of pricey but worth it. Previous owner had home Depot duct in its place. Not on my car!

Blower hose too stiff
The hose was a very good repro, but had no flexibility when compared to the original. It was so inflexible that it collapsed the main tube. I don't believe this is worth 103 dollars. Looks great just doesn't work well!
Followup from the Pelican Staff: This is a Genuine Porsche product that should be an exact duplicate of the original. I'm guessing that perhaps the previous owner routed it slightly in a different location, causing this problem. We've sold a bunch of these with no issues. Speaking of that, the center section is supposed to flatten out a bit and be oval.
