So on my 87' 2.5 the hose from the air box to throttle body is torn. I taped it for now but it restricts air flow by half! I have seen new ones online but nothing under $40! Im looking for a cheap fix. No junkyards arround here have them. Is there something at a hardware store that will work? Its about 12" long and oval shaped..any input would be appreciated! Thanks

Buy the correct part! You've got to do what you've got to do. Suck it up. If you can't afford $40, sell it. That is only the beginning.

No no no....I might have to but if I could find an idea on how to do it different I would. The 40 bucks dont bother me but I was looking for any ideas....gessh....

Sorry…Didn't mean to come off douchey.
but, I do think you need to get an original hose. Check ebay or craigslist.

Thanks....douchy..lol ya, its such a simple part...but oh well..and this is not the beginning. . Ive had every part tore apart on this rig except engine. Trans a t-case completly rebuilt by me. I have way more stick into it that its worth (dont we all) just looking for a fix. I did find one for $29+ shipping. Probably going that route. Thanks
