Best tool I know of for removing or installing that elbow intake air hose while the origonal blow off housing is being used is a hose and cotter pin removal tool.

These tools have smooth edges so they don't tear up or damage a rubber hose, and you use them like a pry bar in the little loop on the end of a cotter pin to remove them after straightening out the other ends with needle nose pliers.

Use it sort of like you would a shoe horn, small prybar, or tire iron on difficult hoses.

Here's one from Sears.
Sears: Appliances, Tools, Electronics, Apparel and more from Craftsman, Kenmore, Diehard and other Leading Brands

Jegs and alot of other places have them too, just google hose and cotter pin puller.
