Putting out an APB: where to find a 4" intake hose for the turbo inlet

I've searched the ends of the internet to no avail.

Where can I find some hose/tubing (about 2 feet long) that is flexible enough to make about a 30* bend but strong enough for resisting collapsing from vacuum (shouldn't be any but.....)?

Trying to put on my huge 12" long cone K&N finally I've had since the late '90's on my turbo. My weeny air filter I think is choking off my turbo. It's only 2.5" deep with a 6" OD. Way too small.

I'd like a smoother outside, no excessively big pleats if possible.

TIA
