Default rubber "T" for MAP/etc at manifold?

Where can i find just this T? It has cracked. It is at the very front of the motor, connects the MAP (and something else) to the manifold. The dealer says I have to buy all the hoses etc.

Your best bet would either be a junkyard, or to mix 'n match different rubber/silicone pieces from a local parts store. If you want to spring for all the vac lines and connectors the dealership is fine, but if you just want individual pieces you have to get creative. That'* speaking from my experience, anyway

What year and trim level is your car? I purchased the vacuum tee alone from a Pontiac dealer for $2.32.

Here'* an excerpt from a rant I did almost a year ago:
Quote:
Episode 3:
Today - While replacing all the rubber vacuum lines on the EVAP system this past weekend, I found out that the little rubber "tee" vacuum connector that goes on the throttle body is badly cracked and, if not leaking already, will shortly fail. This piece isn't available at AutoZone or Advance, so I called ****** Pontiac Parts Dept. today (they're not open weekends at all). Parts guy told me that they no longer sell that part because it'* no longer available. He said he could see it in the system, but it shows as "not available" (for a freakin' '97??). So I asked him for the part number, so I could find it elsewhere, like a junk yard, etc. NO!! "The system doesn't show the P/N because it'* not available." (More BS!!)

I called another dealership that I found online. It'* about 45 miles away. Sure, of course, they have them in stock for $2.32!! Sure they will ship it to me UPS ground. I should get it tommorrow. Oh, and the P/N is 24502852!
So, the PN is 24502872.

Once you have the P/N, everything changes. I actually got the P/N by calling GMPD and talking to a tech there.

On the L67 that T-fitting is not sold by itself at the dealer. You have to buy the whole vacuum line assembly.

I went to to Autozone and bought a vacuum line assortment along with a white T and cobbled together a replacement.
