    Later if i Have time I can measure it for you. Or you can do what I did and take the broken tube to the parts store and have them match it up.
    Life is like riding a bicycle in order to keep your balance you must keep moving.

    good luck finding it at an auto parts store though. You can probably find 5/32" line which will work but if you want the exact thing you may have to order it or go to Subaru directly.

    thanks, yeah I just need something for temp until I can get the real thing, these lines aren't easy to find, I looked at my line and seems like the previous owner might had a boost gauge on it but took it off and never connected it back on and left it hanging unconnected and bad part is I can't hit full boost for now

    Here are some options Amazon.com: 3.5 mm silicone vacuum

    Silicone will hold up well in the engine bay. Personally I ordered 10ft so I could have extra but I doubt you will ever need more than 5
