I just did a quick Google, using "silicone vacuum hose" and founds tons of suppliers, offering many colors and most for very little money.

This is for the off chance that your particular auto parts store doesn't carry them.

I will caution those thinking about the silicone vaccuum lines/tubing that there are differences in quality between vendors. Some of the lower quality lines may become hard and brittle soon after installation and they may kink on tight bends. If you are going this route, I suggest checking out performance shops in your area to see what is avaiable and compare the thickness of the material to the thickness of the lines found at the large auto parts chains.
