Source for Silicone Vacuum Hose/Tubing?

Anyone know of a good source for silicone vacuum hoses/tubing (can't remember the difference between the two)? Looking to replace all the cracked ones in my 110 and RRC. Looking through the archives I found Paragon Performance but they all mad expensive. The cheapest I found was Silicone Intakes at $1.49/foot. Hoping maybe someone here would know better.

And can anyone tell me the exact size needed? I measure anywhere from 4mm to 6mm. Thanks in advance!

I purchased my silicone intercooler hoses and vacuum lines from this following site.

They wre easy to deal with and the quality was real nice

They also have a mm to in conversion that might help

Thanks Dave. Looks like their Magnum brand is unavailable in 6mm. I have to recheck under the hood. Last time I checked it was 6mm for the RRC and 4mm for the 110 for the majority of the lines and other sizes in between. Seems weird.

mcmaster has a fair selection of silicone tube. Un-reinforced in metric. Reinforced in imperial sizes.

Amazon Hose and Rubber Company located right next door to you in Orlando. I purchased turbo hoses for my 300tdi when they blew. Give them a try. www.amazonhose.com
