Usually look to siliconeintakes for this stuff, but nothing is there. Anyone have a suggestion on where I could find this? Didn't see anywhere, looked all over.

Sorry I can't help, but what do you need 3.75" for?

hopefully it's for an intake and the 2.5" is on the turbo side.

youre going to have to stretch a 3.5" or use a 4.0"

If it's a decent piece of tubing, it shouldn't really stretch that well. And it's for my throttle body.

Why not use a 3.75" 90* elbow and a 3.75"->2.5" strait reducer?

If you are using a standard GM LS throttle body, it's a 4" inlet, not 3.75".

That's weird, I measured it out to 3.75 on the TB... I'll go 4" then.

Just trying to find one piece of 4" straight IC pipe now. I'd thought that would be easier.
