Flex Exhaust pipe as Intake Tube????

Not long ago I a DIY intake with the napa filter. It works but is a little tight getting it to fit with the stock 4" intake hose from the filter to the CCV. I was thinking of getting some flex exhaust and making my own tube. This way I can shape it to fit just right and the right length. What do you all think about that? Also the other day I pulled my turbo after I blew it and found that my intake hose that goes from the CCV to the turbo was cracked were it meets the turbo. This was not cracked when I did the intake. I rapped it up really good with some expoxy tape but I guess I need toget a new one. Do theyhave flex exhaust that goes from 3" to 4"??

i dont know how air tight flex exhaust pipe is. i mean you know its ok for the exhaust because a little seepage isnt going to hurt exhaust, but for an intake if it is not a good tight seal then that crack you have is just the same.

Good point made for the flexi exhaust. I used a 20 degree PVC elbow and it worked well. Its just the stock intake hose is pushed tight again my IC pipe. Does anyone have and ideas on what other kind of material I can use. And I know I can get a new intake hose from ford. I was just hoping not to have to spend 80 bucks

I have a e99 and i used the stock hose from the ccv and a 45 exhaust pipe pc and rolled the stock hose up a little and adjusted it all to clear and fit. As for the 3 to 4 hose to the ccv i used the yellow high tack permtex to seal it an let it dry and topped it off permtex black it is a spare now but it sealed and it is flexable and sealed tite.

I also used a stock hose 45 exhaust pipe with this exhaust pipe flanges. So far I didn't any encounter any problems because it's not really going to affect the engine and overall exhaust system.
