Ford, but i bet your looking @ over 10$ for it. Go to a hardware store, pick up a coper elbow (small one) paint it black and throw it in.

If anything it will let unmetered air into the intake so you will run lean. Should triger a CEL however. Keep in mind if the tape was to let go it would let dirt particles into the intake. I would replace it tomorow just to be safe. Not a major problem.

I wasnt even going to mention the mysterious stain on your engine cover ....
LMAO. WEelllllll its actually clean, (yeah i know, your effin crazy lol) but i think the grandma and grandpa before me (last owners) let the battery explode or something. I think its was battery acid because there is a small peice on the bumper from top to bottom with a stain on the paints....
IM gonna get an elbow btw, duct tape doesnt quite add anymore beauty to my engine, lmao.;)

That happened on mine also but luckily my hose was pretty long and it reached the intake without stretching it so I left the elbow out. Anything to put in the hose that holds it together is fine, like the copper one people were pointing out.
