I had to shorten my automatic transmissions vacuum hose about 1 1/2" to use on my C&L cold air intake. I don't like how it's shorter now and pulls tight against the engine cover slot (see picture). I don't know why C&L couldn't supply a standard fitting for the Ford connector on the end of that hose. Instead they give you a non-standard fitting and tell you to cut the factory hose and push onto the new stub. Well, I'm thinking of going with an Airraid CAI now and want that hose back to factory lenght. Is it not much trouble getting and installing a new hose from Ford? Thanks..
