Cold Air Intake Grommet/Gasket

Discussion in 'The Garage' started by afandiewinter, Aug 4, 2007.

  1. anyone know where i can get the rubber fittings (grommet/gasket??) in black?

    i have a MAC CAI and they're blue like in this picture:

    i prefer them in black to match the rest of my engine bay.

    ideas anyone?

    those fittings are just like the ones that Plumbing contractors use, im sure you can get the size you need in a Plumbing store. They come in back :)

  8. thanks for the replies guys. O0

    yep, i went to home depot and they had black rubber fittings. i bought them in 3" but they don't fit well enough. it seems that the one that connects to the TB is 2" on one end and 3" on the other. the one that connects to the MAF adapter is 3" on one end and 2.5" on the other (all estimates - i don't have a tape measure).

    guess i'll have to stick to the fugly blue ones for now. :lame:

    just clamp them down they should still seal well

    or you might be able to find different colours from summit or something.

    You can buy blue silicone all over the internet; just do a quick search.
