JRSC flex tube - need replacement ideas

Last night I noticed that the flex tube between the MAF and TB had gotten a hole worn into it. So, it needs to be replaced.

For those of you with a JRSC, you know that this tube is a black, rubber'ish fabric (Loprene) ... well, replacing it will cost about $56 That's a hard pill to swallow for a section of hose that is maybe a foot long. So I am trying to come up with some ideas of what else I might use.

I was thinking about just using the stock, rubber section of hose that used to go between the two parts, but I remember it not fitting so well with the 65mm TB and now I will have a 67mm TB just to make it a tighter fit.

So if anyone has any options or wants to post a pic of what they are using, I would greatly appreciate the ideas. The other thought I had would be to use a few silicone couplers and a short section of 45* pipe, but I am not sure how this will fit and if the engine moves enough to pop the connection loose.

discuss ...

Tomorrow I'm going to be seeing the guy that I got my section of tubing from that goes from my TB>>>MAF I'll see if he has any more ( he gave me mine for free). Only problem might be that mine is a 65mm TB so it may be a tight fit but I'll let you know.

what it is is a dryer exhuast like hose thingy. its where JR got theirs, from GE prolly, if you go to a place and buy some hose, its like 15 bucks, youll get like 5 feet, then you can sell them for a profit!

Lol. Yeah, but it's a little nicer than a straight up dryer hose. But check it... I was digging through the intarwebs and found a website called "Ho's Now" .... er, I mean "HoseNow.com"

Looks like they have a lot of cool stuff, like a silicone coated, hose similar to the jackson hose. Still, no prices listed so it may end up being a fair deal just ploppin' down the money for that hose from jackson. Still $56 plus shipping is a lil steep for a freakin' one foot section of hose, lol.


This is the one I was looking at possibly using (thinking the 1st on page): http://www.hosenow.com/flexfab.htm

The second one down would be a perfect hose to replace the one that comes with the PiperX Viper or to just duct air. I imagine it would be cool on a tracked svt to pull the fogs and hook this hose up to the holes to vent air to brakes, engine, etc.

That silfab2 would be ideal, I think. I was looking at Samco Superflex.

I know I'm going to need a new tube soon too.
