Turbo Intake tube - where to find one other than dealer??

Just bought a used early 99 powerstroke w/ 200K. Was getting ready to install the DIY intake filter, and the black rubber intake tube that goes from the breather to the turbo inlet has a crack in it on the underside. Luckily the previous owner tried to fix it with duck tape , but I figured I'd fix it right. The only place I can find this tub is at the dealer for $75. p/n F81Z9C681AA. All aftermarket intakes hook to the blowby mixer, and don't go to the turbo inlet as far as I can see. Any help/recommendations are appreciated. I'm not that cheap, but I hate paying $75 for a part that cost 5 bucks to make.

Check a recycler. They might have one for cheaper....

Just a thought...

I think he means the tube that goes from the stock CCV coupler to the turbo.

Location??? I have one you can have . . . . Or just use a black pvc pipe like I did and eliminate the breather by getting some 3/4" heater hose and running it elsewhere like the front bottom of truck or out the back of engine towards the rear. I ran mine in between the driver's side battery and radiator area and let it vent out there . . .

Thanks guys for the thoughts. Ended up making my own entire intake system with some flexfab silicon connectors and BHAF. Looks pretty good, and whines like a dream!!!
