1995 Mustang V6 EGR tube problem

Well I have a 1995 v6 and my EGR tube is rotting and has a hole in it. It has cause my check engine light to come on and creates a loud sound (like air is rushing through the hole) when im slightly on the gas. Since I live in the state of Massachusetts my car needs to pass emissions and be clear from anything that would cause a check engine. My problem is this part has been discountied by ford and every dealer, warehouse and even discounted ford part vendors Ive called don't have it! Right know it looks like my only option is trying to remove the part without breaking it and patching the hole, but it may or may not come out in one piece.

The part number is F4zz9d477c, if anyone has any ideas they would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

You can buy high temp silicone heater hose and some hose clamps to replace the tube that is rotten. Done it many times.

The high temp silicone hose that Steven included in my Windstar kit got brittle and blew out...

I patched my EGR line with 1/2 inch copper tubing and sealed it with some black sealant that is made for fireplace installation... Its good for temps up to 3,000 degrees. It dried rock-hard and it was cheap too! A 12 oz tube was around $8.00 at Menards. Similar products should be available at any major hardware/lumber chain.

I was considering patching it, the only problem is im not so sure the tube will come out in one piece. The car has sent its whole life being driven year round in Massachusetts so although theres very little rust on the car its self that pipe is pretty beat

hopefully I can work something out with metalman

What exactly is the difference, because I thought the headers and intake were all the same 94-98?

Just adding that the lower intake are different widths and take different gaskets for 94-95 and 96-98. I thought the upper were the same though.
