V6 Intake Runner Hoses for 3.0 V6

Hey, i need to get a new set of intake runner hoses for my 3 litre, and stock replacements are a bit expensive. I found some aftermarket ones on ebay here:

But they are for the Alfa 75 and GTV6 because they're from the US and they don't have modern Alfas. Would they suit the later 3 litre V6? I know that the 24V 3 litre has larger intake runners compared to the 24V 2.5, but would the older engine also have the same smaller intake runners?

They look like a DIY jobby. Instead of buying those measure your originals, buy the length of rubber tubing you need (450mm?), cut it and attach it all together with jubilee clips. That shouldn't cost anymore than £25

Not sure if that'll work too well, as IIRC the originals are wider at the plenum end than the other. If you just use a bit of tube, you'll probably end up with kinks, and a nasty big step in your runner.
