    Hey guys I was hoping someone here could shed some light on this, I have searched for this part until blue in the face and cant find it anywhere even though it clearly looks replaceable...

    a picture is worth 1000 words... It's rusted to the point it has some pin hole leaks and needs to be fixed... I could obviously change the whole intake manifold but that seems crazy when this hose looks easily replaced like the longer 90º one in the back...

    Any clues? I am debating buying the rear one and cutting it down if it's the same diameter. I could tap it but that will probably require pulling the whole manifold as well. any other ideas?

    2001 4.6l 2wd xlt with an aluminum intake.

    Thanks!

    Did you check your local Ford dealer part’s department with the VIN?

    Yes thanks, they claim they don't see the part in their diagrams and i haven't been able to find a good diagram online that matches my style intake either. I believe the intake was maybe changed over to plastic and they just don't support these rarer aluminum styles but I'm really not sure...
