Default Boost pipe replacement

Hi, just wondering if someone could help, I have a 2008 sti hatch and I need the replacement boost pipe that goes from the turbo to intercooler.
iv searched eBay etc but can't seem to locate the correct one. It's the red pipe in the photo.
also if there is any other pipes that I would need to change when im down that area seems to be a bit of leaking going on there

Are you sure its leaking from that pipe?, looking around in the general area it all looks oily, usual culprit for that condition is the 90 degree breather pipe on top of the block that feeds the balance pipework to the heads, its prone to harden & split, to change it, its a manifold off job.

Not 100 percent sure but it looks like someone has been at the pipe before it looks cut near the end so I would like to replace it anyway,
the breather your talking about is that a dealer part only

The red elbow you are talking about, mine was chewed up by the perforated jubilee clip (as shown) used by Subaru until it wouldn't stay on the turbo.

Replaced with the samco equivalent at a faction of the price.

For example

FYI OEM part is:- Duct-air intake, 14462AA354

Cost new is in the region of 300 !!
