Duct tape?

Sounds like you need a new pipe, other than some ghetto ---- you aren't going to repair it. And yes your IC pipes see vacuum.

Pretty sure they won't. Vac is caused by the engine trying to pull air past a closed throttle. The IC pipes are pre TB.

you'll need to cut the hose completely through, add a small length of pipe in the proper diamter, and clamp the hose back together.

lol at duct tape.

this is not going to end well.

I would BET that duct tape will work as a temporary solution, id be amazed if 6-8 layers of duct tape or gaffa tape wont take 10psi over a small 10mm hole.

Aren't there DIY silicone kits for making your own couplers? I'd imagine you can use it to repair as well.

And everyone knows that duct tape adhesive handles heat really well and never gets gooey.

The only way I see duct tape working in IC piping is if it was on the inside, but then what about when it falls off and goes somewhere else.
Next thread: how do I get duct tape out of my intake manifold without any tools.

I was joking about the duct tape, but let us know how it goes. I'm sure it would hold for a short time..
