Focus Central T/B

Has anyone else installed this on their SVT? I just did and I have a slight problem. It didn't include a silicone boot(hose) to connect it to my AEM CAI. I modified the stock intake boot but would like to replace it with a Goodyear piece or maybe something different. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I went with the vibrant performance silicone coupler. 2 and 3/4" to 3" is the size and look around because the peice ranges from 25.00 to 40.00 in price. Plus it comes in red, black or blue depending where you get it from!!

With my Steeda intake, there were 2 different sized couplings. The tapered one was supposed to go on the TB (stock) and the straight one (slightly larger) was supposed to go on the MAF sensor. I switched 'em around, had a heck of a time stretching the coupling onto my aftermarket throttlebody, but managed...

Where can I pick up 2 red ones... would like to have the correct sizes, and have them match under the hood.

Check ebay for 65mm ID hose couplings. Usually made of silicon or other material.

Can someone explain the differences between the Focus SVT 65mm TB and the zetec 65mm TB? Are these much different than the 5.0L mustang 65mm TBs?
