[DML] Silicon hose under the intake manifold

Rob & list,

1. Where would one buy the correct silicon hose & clamp for this location?
2. Does anyone have a write-up on the procedure to replace this?
3. Is there anything else I should check and/or replace while I'm at it?

I've replaced all of the hoses throughout my car except those under
the intake manifold and I do have a tiny, tiny leak coming from that
area. I figure it's time to get this job done.
