Yeah, I've been looking for parts to fab a hose. I can't find anything that will span the 7" run/3.5" rise with <10 degree offset. All of the elbows are too long and the 2.36" throttle body-side is an odd one to match. So I'm thinking about going your route and sealing it with tape. However, my hose is split so bad, I will need to insert some type of tube to support it. I wonder if I need to use CARB-compliant tape for this repair... Maybe then it will pass inspection?!?
