Air filter housing problem :[

Here's my issue and I would really appreciate some input,
I was attempting to replace the air filter in my Honda ('03 Civic Si) and there is a small hose that connects on the side of the housing (about an inch in diameter), the small plastic piece snapped off. So what I did was make a new piece out of a small pipe in order to restore the connection. Is this something that shouldn't be a big deal? Should I look into replacing the whole housing or is there a place where I can find just this little piece by itself? I've attached an image showing exactly what I'm talking about :]

Any help would be fantastic as I'm new to the Honda scene and new to these forums as well.

Thanks!

Re: Air filter housing problem :[

Assuming it's the hose that connects to the valve cover... it's your crankcase breather hose.. basically recirculates any blow-by gases back into the intake stream instead of venting off to the atmosphere..

keeps hippies happy, no offense intended to any hippies out there.. lol
