Bending wet exhaust tube

The PO installed a non spec tube on the port engine that ran from the heat exchanger to the exhaust elbow. It is a really tight spot with both ports within 12" of each other and at 90 to each other too.

The ports are 1 3/8" and I am having a tough time making the bend without developing a kink. Does anyone know how to make a bend with introducing a kink? Do I hear up the whole hose in hot water?

Trident makes a corrugated hose, but the smallest size is 1 1/2" so that is out.

Here is the non spec hose. Click image for larger version
