I was faced with the same problem when I pulled the 300 six out of my Ford truck to rebuild it. All vacuum lines were junk. I measured how much length I needed and ran new black rubber vacuum lines.

hard line

I had a few on my 89 firebird that I was wondering if the hard plastic vacuum lines had to be there, so I took some straight plastic lines from advance auto and applied some heat to them, just enough to bent them to what the originals would look like, considering mine were broken.

you could go with one of the kits from summit-they arnt car specific, but they are way way way better than rubber vac lines, and they look better too!
