Default tygon tubing and smoke system

I'm installing a smoke system. The manual says that silicon tubing will withstand muffler heat. Will the tygon tubing used on the rest of the system stand up to the heat. Can it be hooked directly to the muffler.

Tygon will not withstand heat like silicone.

Default tubing

u r best off to go with neoprene tubing, tygon eventually gets hard and wont take the heat and silicon is not compatible with smoke fluids. it with balloon up and get soft.
