at where the clamp tightenes the brittle rubber
1. repair it with silicone
2. find a stock replacement unit
3. build something from the hardware store?

i ended up using a peice of threaded steel pipeing about 2" in diameter and 2" in length to connect the hose on the turbo to the rest of my intake. i havent ad any melting issues since.
if you must ge the stock part, the dealer will be happy to hunt one down for something like $60 or so. at least from my expiriance, ive gone through 4 original inlet hoses, they were all used and all fell apart on me. you might be better off building something more reliable.

Couldnt find one, so luckily Caleb had one and sent it to me.
The easiest fix is to get another stock piece. If you make a custom piece, you will need to plumb everything for the PCV as well.

it only cost $ 10 for materials
3"x2" reducing bushing 1-1/2" pvc coupling 2" flexible elbow
also added the pcv filters
and hooked up the yellow line for wastegate
