Pre-VANOS CCV Vent pipe, Help!

So I bent the vent pipe as I was taking it out, which I thought was ok because I ordered a new one with a bunch of other new parts. Well it turns out that the one I bought is the wrong one. I bought part # 11151705301, which is the pipe that has the spring loaded plastic flange on one end and the short rubber hose on the other. I've searched everywhere, and I can't find the part number for the solid metal pipe. I can't even find the diagram for it on realoem. I'm sure somebody knows what the correct part number is, so please let me know ASAP so I can call my local distributor and get it sent to me. Thanks.

I may be calling it the wrong thing, so just to be clear it's the pipe that connects to the ccv at the back on the intake on the drivers side and runs under the intake manifold the connects to the block at the front. I think it goes to the oil separator, but I only see an oil separator on the diagrams for e38's. I'll post photos when I can.

Never mind! I found it, thank god. I was searching under the vacuum control, lubrication system, and intake manifold, but it was under the cylinder head section. The part number is 11151702012, "Vent Pipe".
