Flexible aluminum duct

Does anyone have a source for 2 inch flexible aluminum ducting, like they used to use for air hoses? I hate those orange spiral wire hoses. I looked on the web and the smallest I could find was 3".

The SCAT is a pain when the wire comes unbonded from the fabric for sure..I went to the black stuff (more$) where the wire is encapsulated and like it.... so far...

Thanks. I may have to, but I'm looking for the semirigid aluminum duct because that's the original stuff.

I own several old Volvos and they use the flexible Alum duct for their "carb heat" from exh header to air cleaner. They are approx 2" . I'll measure their actual ID when I get a chance .

That's the trick. It comes compressed. IOW it stretches out. I ordered 6 feet at $6.05/foot.
