Part find help for intake elbow (rubber sleeve/coupler)

Im trying to find another rubber sleeve/coupler for the side closest to the plenum. AFEs sleeve looks wider which is what I need. Agency powers is too narrow and would slip off. Ive looked at some auto stores and Home Depot.
Im betting a plumbing store might have one but if anyone knows a website to refer too.
It would be 20 diameter, 2 wide and flexible

AFE makes a similar part... it's going to be the same size as the plenum no matter what else it is tightening up to.

Look into the macht Schnell ones Id call these companies direct and say you bought their kit a while back but lost the part

Home Depot prob would have something just not that big. Maybe a pool supply store idk

Just determine the round diameter and see if a silicone coupler is available in that size. They are usually 3-4 inches wide. Like for a diesel truck turbo intake.

4 is def too small and He said 20 diameter which I assume he meant circumference which would be about 6 1/3

you're chasing a wild goose trying to find a non-intended solution. just buy someone's aftermarket intake coupler and be done with it.

No clue I have the stock one so never needed to measure. Id guess the od since thats easiest and his is thin walled carbon so prob not much diff. OP if you have the stock one still you can cut the ends off that and try. Or just use some bead seal and use the skinny one you think will slip off

Should measure ID of the existing rubber. If it is 6.00 or 6.5 or 7 or 7.5 or 8 inches you can easily find a coupler. If you need quarter steps it will be harder to find.

Stretch it into a perfect circle and measure the inside diameter.
