Help identifying a part, 2002 Boxter 2.7L

Hey All, I recently picked up a project 2002 Porsche Boxter 2.7L Tiptronic. Car doesn't start at the moment, previous owner stated it was just a starter. Rather than doing the smart thing and troubleshooting a bit, I just picked up a starter and proceeded to install it. I've since determined that it's more likely an immobilizer issue but that being said, I managed to break some type of hard line hose that sits under the intake manifold and in front of the starter. Can anyone help identify this hose so I can see if I can find a replacement?

That looks like a "Breather Hose" that crosses the engine from the AOS on the right rear to the PCV valve on the left front. It's a pain to replace because it crosses through the intake plenum. I have seen them 'successfully' repaired with a section of hose in the same diameter.
