The rubber/silicone(?) things that hold the intake tube to the throttle body and the filter cone to the tube.... Reason why, I have a JC Sports intake and the 2 that are on there are extremely worn(bought it used) and I want to replace them. Also, does anyone know if I canuse any cone filter(K&N) to replace the current one(god only knows)?

Oh, thanks HondaH8r for the picture :D

Hey, my intake! Cool!:D As for the cone filter, as long as the K&N cone is sized to fit the JC Sports tubing, it should work just fine (or better, depending what the filter you have is!)

Home Depot has them, but they don't take very well to heat. Rubber breaks down after time. Silicone on the other hand, has a high heat tolerance and can withstand the temperatures in the engine bay. The rubber couplers from Home Depot will work for a little while but I wouldn't use them as a long term thing. Scraps of rubber in the engine is'nt good.
