Two Hose Elbows on Vacuum Control

Changing out all hoses and wanted to know if I could just get these two hose elbows from Autozone's hose area. OEM seems quite prices for some hoses.

Numbers 2 and 3 in the attached diagram.

If that's pricey you're driving the wrong brand.

It's just vacuum hose, so yeah anything that fits and doesn't kink should be fine.

Just seeing if there was an alternative since it is just vacuum hoses. I don't know about you but $5 max vs $50 is a big difference and the remaining money could be used on other things.

If one has no qualms throwing your money away when it is not needed then I guess they wouldn't have a problem.

I was just giving you a hard time.

Of course save money if you can. See if the local auto parts store has something sold by the foot. Should be way less than $50.

They shouldn't, just vacuum from the sucking jet pump to the intake manifold.

I just finished removing the intake manifold and replacing all vacuum lines this past weekend. HUGE job. #2 is better to purchase the OEM part due to the bends but the #3 going to the connector on the upper intake boot, you can get at a local auto parts store for around $1. 3/8 in. fuel hose was the perfect inside diameter for the hose and will last.

If you are removing the manifold make sure to get all associated gaskets, o-rings, and grommets. I can let you know what all I replaced if you are going that route..

I have all gaskets and Orings. replaced all coolant lines, two heater hoses, both engine sensors, camshaft sensor, vacuum lines, etc.

Thanks for the hose size recommendation. Will pick up today.
