Angry Potholes SUCK!!!

so i finally installed my suspension(eibach pro-kit springs, koni sport adj shocks/struts, H&R 24mm F&R sway bars, focussport F&R strut bars)about 2 weeks ago. car handles like a freakin champ. tear up on-ramps like its nothing. BUT yesterday while driving home from my buddy's house with my suspension on full stiff, i hit a pothole. not too happy. bent my euro rim on the inner and outter part of the wheel(non fixable) popped the sidewall of my tire, and snapped the piece that holds the intake mani cable. so now i got a bum tire up front and the spare in the back. the front camber is really bad, and im broke as a joke. so far it looks like i need a new rim, new tire, and that piece that holds the cable.

anyone where to get that piece??? or a part number or anything?

I'd appreciate any help
