TB to 2.5inch intake coupler

does anyone know where i can get an elbow, the OD of the TB is like 3.25-3.5 in not sure, i am using a 2.5inch pipe for my charge pipe, i found a silicone elbow on ebay but its 2.5-3.5 and im not sure if i could tighten it enough without leaking

i dont think the outer diameter of your stock TB is 3.5 inches.... lol

the SVT one is 2.75. I use a 2.75 to 2.5 inch reducer for my charge pipes. I think even with the FC TB its only 3..

Yep the ZX3 is much larger than the SVT OD on the TB

A 3.25 to a 2.5 is what you need , you can get a 3 inch hose on it but its tuff and will take some work

I just use a 3'' coupler. Granted you will probably cuss alot getting it on there and once it's on there you wont want to take it off but it WILL work. Just takes some elbow grease and time.
