FITV to IACV Hose size

Anybody know this off the top of their head?
I replaced that metal tube that physically connected this hose to the hose that goes from the air intake to the breather valve on the valve cover. But I'm pretty sure I got a size too big, I leaked a bunch of coolant on the way to work today and on the way home my car over heated. I could clearly see coolant coming from this hose. Don't worry, I pulled over immediately and walked to a gas station to buy water to put in the radiator.
3/8 inch hose is what is on there now. Idk if that's outer or inner diameter.

Bought the wrong hose, leaked coolant, overheated, now whats the correct size for the hose going from the FITV to IACV so I can confidently drive to Austin this weekend for BBA?

I just replaced those two hoses, funny. Lol. I took the originals and asked for hose with the same I.D at O'Riellys or Autozone. Easy!

Re: FITV to IACV Hose size

i'm perfectly fine with it being a pita too take off. that means the pressure from the coolant won't make it spring a leak and blast coolant everywhere.
