alright guys, i live in augusta, ga. where NOBODY in town keeps 3" silicone hose. i need some 3" couplers and 2 1/2" couplers and a couple of 2 1/2" to 3" reducers. but with the gm maf, the outside diameter is 3 1/4". the silicone hose won't stretch that much haha. what have some of you with the 3" maf done to resolve this issue? i will be going from 3" IC piping to the maf. i would like to start this thing up this weekend. i might just have to take a trip to ATL for some couplers. any suggestions would be great.
Dude don't try the heating or screwdriver method!! I had the same problem you have - 2.5" IC pipework to 3.25" MAF. I tried and tried to stretch the 3" to the 3.25" - no dice!! I called up Kinetic Motorsport and they actually make silicone couoplers especially for the 3.25" MAF.
Ordered 2 3.35"/2.5" reducers and the right T-bolt clamps and had it all in a few days. The guy that I talked to knew exactly what I was after when I mentioned GM MAF. Easy to deal with.
The right part makes a world of difference when doing jobs like this.
