Default throttle body vacuum connections, P/N request

I took off my throttle body and cleaned it today, but in the process I ripped open an already-cracked vacuum boot, the T-shaped one that spurs off to the fuel pressure regulator. First, can someone doublecheck to make sure I've got my connections right -- I've got the L-shaped boot on the upper port and the T-shaped boot on the lower port (the vacuum lines coming into the TB only fit one way, so I'm not worried about them). Second, I know I'm probably gonna be out of luck looking for a replacement boot at an auto parts store, so should I go to the dealer? Or is it feasible to hack something together?

Hacking something together wouldn't be easy. So I'm looking to (hopefully) get them from a dealer. Does anyone have the part numbers for the vacuum boots that attach to the throttle body? I'd be very appreciative. I'm probably going to replace all three -- the boot on the fuel pressure regulator, the T-shaped boot on the throttle body, and the L-shaped boot on the throttle body. They're all showing signs of dry rot.

Do dealers sell vacuum line kits? I'm sure if these three were weak enough to crack so easily, the rest of my vacuum lines and fittings could probably stand to be replaced too.
