Default Silicone connectors

Does anyone know what the sizes of the hose connectors are for the greddy kit? I'm looking to upgrade the hoses. Also, does anyone know where I can get a silicone transition that is 1" id to 1.5" id?

Thanks

yeah I just today measured for new couplers.

2.75" for intake tube <--> miata AFM
(RX7 afm looks like 3.125 if you go that route, I guess 3" would work if you lube it up )
2.25" for intake tube <--> turbo
2.00" turbo outlet

The throttle body side I believe is 2.5". Damn, just realized I didn't measure it.

Don't forget to get the right size clamps too. I've been running worm clamps for 8k miles without a problem, but I am ordering t bolt clamps to dress it up a bit.

It is. I remember that one very well- took me three tries to get the homebrew up-pipe into the throttle body inlet to work properly.

I forget where I found it and like a dumbass I didn't bookmark it, but I found a website the other day that has silicone with a kevlar jacket for high temp application. I know that works because our turbodiesel water tenders use them and they still look brand new and the heap of **** trucks are about 20 years old.

Also, here's a website with good prices on t-bolt clamps, they also sell constant torque clamps.

http://intakehoses.com/Merchant2/mer...T&Store_Code=I

I just ordered 6 t-bolt clamps for my upcoming intercooler build for $30 or so shipped. That's a damn fine price on t-bolts IMO.
