4" tubing?

Trying to find some 4" tubing for my air intake. Needs to flex. Anyone have an idea where to get something like that?

Already tried auto and rv shops

What about a pluming supply place or a Home Depot. You might even be able to find something at a tractor supply like one of those irrigation pipes without the holes.

Nope for real.
Engineered to outperform, installs faster, requires 1/5th the storage and transport space, and "perforated" pipe has 14 percent better flow rate

It's worth it if you factor in your time and gas.
