Hello I have a issue with my PCV valve. Well not actually the valve but where it connects to the upper intake. The problem is that the plastic return line is extremely loose at the connection and will slide in and out with NO pressure. There is a rubber hose that is ~3inches long that connects the plastic return line to the intake. what size diameter is it and what kind of hose should I use? I don't know if the PCV setup is the same for a GT as a Mach. I ask because I'm afraid to take it off(part on intake is stuck so ill have to cut) and not be able to get the correct hose or anything close and be without my car because of a piece of rubber.....

If the rubber section you mention is in good shape - not cracked, deteriorated, etc., then I would just install a black zip tie or if you really want to be fancy about it then a hose clamp over the area where the rigid plastic tube slides in. I had to do exactly that with where the PCV tube goes on to the nipple on my CAI and it has held just fine for years.
