Default Air intake hose for V6 Camry

Found some cracks in the air intake hose of my V6 Camry and trying to find
this part other than a dealer is quite a chore. Dealer wants 120$ for this
item, was thinking maybe someone can steer me to a more reasonable
alternative.

Check your yellow pages and give the local salvage auto parts (junk
yard) vendor a call. Major chain stores pull transmissions from there
and install it in people's cars. I'm sure you can find reasonably new
air intake hoses. It's probably not worth $120 for some rubber air
ducts.

==============
There are many online sources that will provide genuine Toyota parts at
discounted prices.
Sometimes, the local dealer will even bend if you're straightforward
with them.
I use only Toyota parts, but rarely pay retail even at the local
dealer. It is just too costly.
My favorite has become Lincoln Frash at Butler Toyota,
http://www.toyotadiscountparts.com/
800-553-2662
because he had the most prompt and professional quote when I was
looking for bids for a long parts list in connection with timing belt
replacement a few years ago.
The parts numbers have always been exactly correct and pricing
reasonable, whereas sorry to say, when checking local dealer quotes, I
have also found errors in the part number.
Although, the local Toyota parts manager has recently been matching the
online prices and has also been accurate with the parts numbers, so
I've been making a point of seeking him out for larger orders.

I've had good luck with both www.toyota-parts-dealer.com and
www.rockauto.com
FWIW
YMMV

Yeah, two short segments of rubber ducts on both sides of a resonator.
It depends on how much people want to spend.
