Looking for 3" I.D. air intake hose

Anyone know where to source 3" inside diameter rubber or plastic intake hose? I'm trying to reach the driver's side fender vent grill from the air cleaner on my 300Tdi...maybe 2 feet of hose or maybe a touch more...
thanks
George

Local private airport wih a parts counter - they should have some silicon (orange) hose with the spiral wound wire reinforcing used in the heating systems of light aircraft. I used to get this stuff to replace worn heater hoses on early Porsche 911's. It looks like the type of hose used in dryer vents.

Ebay has it. Are you hooking up a snorkle? If so, cool, if not, don't run the hose there as it lets in a lot of water, not a huge deal but not ideal.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

ahh...but there is a plan grasshopper!

I have acquired wolf snow cover to prevent wet and snow...no need for snorkel for my usage but I do want cooler intake air so have set this up on my left fender (picture from PA Blanchard site where I got the cover)...now am needing hose to complete life's current purpose.
