You might try a large truck repair place, see if they have some radiator
hose in the size/shape you need. I needed something like that for the
modified air intake on my 4x4. I had been using a flexible dryer vent
hose for a few years, it would last about a year before spliting, then I
finally found something that works. Used some large ID radiator hose
(from McMaster-Carr) and a PVC pipe fitting:
So far its held up fine.
