Default Brake Booster Hose

I butchered the soft hose that connects the brake booster to the intake manifold. I've searched around a bit and can't seem to find a new one. Does this thing have a specific name? Any suggestions as to where to locate a new one? Thanks for the advise, and sorry for my noobness.

That's it... and that's exactly what I did to mine. Thanks for the tips, I try to avoid the dealer as much as possible but I guess I'll just have to give in this time.

any hose with a 1-way check valve will suffice.

As stated, it needs to be big and it needs a good check valve. Most parts store check valves suck *** and restrict flow in one direction and almost seal in the other. A crappy valve will limit your brake boost.
