So one of the hoses is leaking but I am going to replace both. Are there specific names to the hoses I replace or can I just use a standard power steering hoses to replace both? Also, when I put pedal to the metal it takes awhile to get up in speed I was reading online and it was my fuel pump not giving enough fuel to the engine? Just need a second thought. Thanks you guys.

The hoses are usually referred to as the high pressure side and the low pressure side, hoses are molded to suit individual models so you must get the correct hose to suit your car. As for the power problem, start with basic tune up, plugs, filters etc and check for codes as well, not all codes will set a check light.
