Default Loosing power in on my Cummins

Heads up, it seemed like my traybed had been loosing power for a while and I was getting "Check Air Filter" messages...finally had a chance to look into it yesterday. My air intake hose had collapsed within the fender. Looks like there is a new updated part (68137152AD).

Here is what it looked like: (wonder it even ran at all)

And before anyone inquires as to the snorkel causing the issue, here is the Mopar Star Case S151800016 showing it happens on stock trucks. Just a low quality Mopar part.

Looks fine... You think that would restrict your air?

Thanks Dave! Do you know when they changed to the "better" part you mentioned the number from? Or was this never in a factory truck, just available for swaping out later?
