So the line that goes from combi valve to combi valve broke on my 2.8. (The brittle plastic part) so what I did was got a rubber 1ft vacuum line from auto zone and connected the two broken plastic lines with rubber line. But now the travel length is longer because I didn't cut the new rubber hose an just put it as is (1 ft).

Would I need to cut it down to as much as possible or let it be?

Pics below. Look near coolant tank.

And is this cheap mod sufficient enough to get the SAI flow going. Or should I just order a new line?

Dealers needs 3 days to order the line and I need to get the car inspected ASAP hence cheap fix.

It's just vacuum, as long as it hold it'll be fine. Cut it shorter if you want, but the length difference shouldn't be an issue.
