V6 part, what are we calling this?

The air intake past the resonator, just as it gets to the plenum chamber. The rubber bit that bends through 90degrees and is prone to perishing. Well mine has. What are we calling this bit?

EPER calls it 'air ducting'. How about concertina or convoluted pipe? Looking at the WO GTV, 3.0 engine, they don't appear to show the convoluted hose as a seperate part either?? Just a huge lump including the resonator, £155 Ouch.

Can't be right...surely...

TBH, a good thorough clean, seal the splits with Sikaflex or the like, then wrap over the top with self-amalgamating tape (did a Sikaflex repair on my 155 V6 years and years ago - was still perfect when I sold it recently).....or a suitable elbow from Samco. Might need to add a couple of couplings for the PCV pipes but it would still be cheaper than buying the whole lump.
