    hose question pls help lads

    over the last week or so ive noticed a small loss of power, and ive noticed a split in the hose coming from my smic on the cold side going into the throttle body, the problem is my nitrous and petrol jet are plumbmed into this hose using a metal sleeve on the inside, but as the hose has been on the car from day one i need to replace it with a super silicone hose, wot i want to do is use 2 aluminum 90o bends with a piece of silicone joining the to make the double set from the intercooler to the throttle body, then a silicone sleeve to attach the 90o bend to the throttle body, then im going to attach my jets through both the silicone and uluminum for a better join????
    sooooooooo wot i need to know is, the diamters of the original hose cos im sure it reduces???? pls help so i can order my new ones to suit
    im not being a lazy bugger its just a mission to strip that hose down as my nos is plumbed into it so im asking you guys for help!!!!!!
