That ducting is really thin and flimsy, not quite dryer hose but close.
A couple of those say that it is one ply the other two have some wire in between, but it is still really thin.

I don't know. It might be thin but it is flexible compared to the thick silicone bend I have now. It might make hooking up a air box to the tork tech easier. It can with stand high temperatures which is important because of the under hood environment.

That looks kind of like the stuff they use on air starts for jet engines like the DC-8 uses. If it's the same stuff, it's pretty flimsy and folds easily until you pressurize the inside of it. IIRC, I want to say they ran it at 90-100 PSI and a ridiculous amount of cfm to air start the jet engines. I don't think I would use it on the inlet side of things though, I'd think it would collapse to easily unless you just used it for a short connection. That's if it's the same stuff.

All the ones I seen were between 5/8" and 1" ID. What exactly would you use something that small for? Or am I missing something here?

A short run of it would probably work, anything of length I think would colapse. If you were to use it basically just for a coupler, I think that it would work fine.
I thought you were talking about making an entire inlet pipe/ tube out of it, and I don't see it working for that.
