Where can I get a piece of hose like that?
I use radiator hose from any auto parts store. Take your DV in with you to make sure you have the correct diameter and then get a piece that is long enough for you to cut a few times in case you mess up

Alright, I put on the IX DV today and everything seems to feel okay but I had one last question.

Is it supposed to be that quiet? I know i'm going from a VTA HKS to a stock DV but geez, I can barely hear any air purge. Does this sound right to any body?

It should be inaudible unless you have an aftermarket intake. If you do have an intake, then it should make noise, but not a lot. After all, the purpose of a BOV is not to make noise, but rather to protect the compressor.

I do have an aftermarket intake... but it's so quiet, I wasn't sure if I put it on right. It makes the slightest "whoosh" and I figured I'd hear more of a purge. I also noticed that the shuttering sound coming from my intake is gone.

Can't tell much of a difference in performance so far but in my opinion, I never felt like the car stumbled in between gears with my HKS. Oh well, as long as it's better for the car that all that really matters to me. I really don't need any extra attention with a bright red Evo.

Are you saying the OEM DV does or doesn't cause your car to stumble?

The biggest difference you should notice is part throttle response.

Well with the HKS, it's known to cause a rich AFR in between shifts which I've heard will cause the car to feel like it's stumbling. When JustDSM tuned me with the ssqv, it was reading rich between gears. I guess I just couldn't feel it.

The OEM now feels fine also which is what I meant by a diffence in performance. I guess the throttle response is a little better.

The richness is caused by the venting of previously metered air. The stock DV by design is partially open at idle and isn't so much of an of/on effect which gives you that feeling of better throttle response.
