Don't use transmission/oil-cooler or fuel line hose. It won't meet the temperature and pressure specs needed for power steering systems.

Thats great data and a great note. The temperature ranges are well within normal tolerance - just make sure the braided line that you get for the system is rated to 2000ish psi (which is common and easily available) - then absolutely pressure test before you use it.
