Intercooler hose aftermarket replacement options?

So the hose going from my fmic on the driver side up to my motor has a huge hole in it. Anything I should/could replace it with that is reasonably priced besides stock hose?

Also my auto tranny cooler has broken the plastic mount it's bolted to with a torq bolt/screw. Is it the radiator fan housing that needs replaced here?

But whats the best way to connect it to the lower charge pipe and the IC outlet valve? The IC outlet valve has those built in ridges for the stock piping's wire clamp. I doubt I could get a good outter seal with a silicon hose. And the lower charge pipe connects to that rubber elbow with a permanent metal clamp. I suppose if I could get that clamp off that side would be a little less difficult. Anyone? Could I just buy an individual part from one of the FMIC vendors?

you would have to break off that clamp around the rubber elbow and replace with a t-bolt. But you're right, I forgot what the outlets on the stock IC look like..no way you're going get a good seal there..which means you're just gonna have to buy another stock hose..why not just get it covered under warranty?

The fault came from an accident not a defect. Anyone else know of some sort of fix I could do here besides buying a new pipe? Dealer wants 250$. Thats 1/4th the cost of an entire FMIC + piping all together... There is not After market charge pipe that replaces this part??

There are no aftermarket pipes that are made to connect to the stock IC..wouldnt really make much sense. I have the stock pipe and dont really need it anymore..pm me an offer.
