Default Injector seal grommet things?

I picked up a set of RX7 460cc and I was removing the rubber thing that seals it agains the engine it flew the **** off (I actually wonder how it happened) but long story short I cleaned everything and I can't find it, so I figure I'd just order a new one.

I don't know what it's called so it's hard to search for. What's that little piece called?

Isolator? The one that goes between the injector and the manifold?

One of those?

All I know is that they are still expensive as **** for a little piece of rubber.

I need one for an 88 RX7, so none of those will work. Thanks though.

Ohh I thought you had got the RX7 injectors and were putting them in your miata.

You can get all of the seals at oreilly's for 15 dollars, just have them look it up for your miata. If i can find the box, i will give you the part number.

You can get them from Advance Auto. I would replace all of them-mine were all hard and cracking and leaking pretty hard which is not good for boost.

Not to sound like an ***, but if it were worth my time, I have a set of them still in a Mazda package somewhere that I would give to you. But by the time I tracked down those tiny *******, if I could find them at all, and shipped them, it would have been more worth your and my time for you to just go get them at the parts store. Though I do think mine were special order from Trussville Mazda parts, my local parts stores didn't have any in stock. Been a while, so I forget. Anything over $2 a piece is ridiculous for a piece of rubber. Gotta have them though, so I guess they can make whatever price they want.
