vacuum fittings


I want to get some tubing to replace some of the vacuum attachments (simple straight-through, two way pieces) between the hard vacuum lines and the various nipples on certain parts.
Fastlane doesnt have these, and I know my dealer just cuts from a long thin tube of the correct size, but the price is ridiculous.

What do I need to know to get some proper tubing to do this? I am mainly concerned that some tubings may be too soft, and may collapse on itself. Id keep the rubber parts really short to minimize the chance of that, but still, I want to pick the right type of tubes.

Can I get generic corect size tubes from autozoe or lowes?

ANy help is appreciated, Thanks

Looks like B2020-12368 is what you want, priced at $2.16 /m. Find it under 'air intake' and search 'all products'. Note that finding the right part can require some diligence, and always call Phil if you have trouble finding something. My experience is that they carry more parts NOT in the online catalog than IN.
