http://www.siliconeintakes.com/ has nice quality pieces for like $17 each but the runners are only like 3" i believe. it should work for most of the bends you need, if not use ebay or atpturbo.com.

+1 on Silicone Intakes. I have ordered from them several times. Shipping is quick and I have not had any issues with their stuff.

Hey mkulak,

Thanks, here is what I figured out that I still need.

1 straight reducer 2.5" to 2.0"
1 t-bolt clamp 2"
2 elbow 90 reducers 2.5" to 2.25"
2 t-bolt clamps 2.25"

That should do it.
Let me know what you can do!
It would be nice to avoid shipping and duty and all that crap.
You can PM me if you prefer

Thanks again
Jason

Silicone stuff on ebay is garbage compared to what silicone intakes sells. I have both, and the SI stuff is much much better quality.

+1 on siliconeintakes.com since I just purchased some parts from them and will be buying more.
Example: Reducing 90 deg elbow, 3" to 2.5"
Pegasus $48
Siliconeintakes $20 (not including coupon code)
Forge Motorsport $38

Man I searched for a coupon code but could not find one. Thanks for that Sam.

yeah I posted that link cause it's where I got my silicone parts, but I swear I got all of mine for $12-$15. I looked at the link after I posted and that's not cheap at all. Maybe it was the wrong link, but I swear that's where I got them...

I actually stealth whored their site on this forum and then linked them to the thread, they sent me a 10% coupon code in return for the free marketing.

Gotta read their FAQ's guys.

Example. They include a sticker of their logo with your order. Plaster it on your car and send them a pic of it and they will send you a 10% coupon for that as well.
