It'* just what connects the intake to the throttle body. Silicone is ideal. It flexes when the engine torques, and can handle the underhood temperatures.

We know what it looks like. It'* an "accordian" style tube. Can you see how that red intake would be better than the one you have now?

The box is your airbox, the filter is inside. Remember that flat K&N filter you posted? That is the filter that goes into that box.

The red pipe is smooth inside. Smoother is better. Your "accordian" tube is not smooth inside.

I don't know what you are talking about...the other little box.

The big black hose to the left? That would be the upper radiator/coolant hose. I don't see a silver box in that pic, but that big black rectangle on the bottom left is the radiator...
