    This comes up a lot with engine swaps. There is always some kind of molded hose that will fit, they make hundreds of them.

    Measure the diameter you need (both ends) make a mock up of the hose you need, I use old heat duct or air filter duct material bent to shape and stiffened with duct tape.

    Go to the parts store and ask to go through their hose stock. You will find one that has the right shape and size, and can be cut to fit.
