Take a picture of it. If its the right kind of hose I'm thinking of, black RTV at Autozone will work fine.

cant take one right now, but is the regular black one that comes stock in the impala ls 2000.

the only special thing is the plug where you conect the sensor thats wired to the maf.

im thinking about spending the money "but not now" in one of these:

57-3045 - K&N 57 Series FIPK, Performance Intake Kit

should i?.

i noticed the crack since the car rpm where bad, i thought the IAC was bad, but there was a whistle sound near the acceleration body, and it was the hose that had a crack, i have no idea how that happened.

I agree. Unless your planning on spending tons of more money on performance enhancements, this $280 filter will do no good. Go find a junkyard, you can get one for about $10.
