G35 Coupe
Intake Coupler

I have the 05 G35 coupe. In the process of changing out spark plugs, I noticed the coupler at the top of the intake going to the throttle body was ripped in 2 different places. Im wanted to know you all can help me out with cheapest reliable option and replacing that coupler. Dealer do not sale separate from he whole intake system. Ive also read that I can switch to the Z tube but don't really want just because of a small coupler. What other options im looking at? please send links and pics of potential replacement

I think it's a 45 degree bend, verify this first but you should definitely be able to buy a silicone turbo coupling.

I noticed mine was ripped too when I was changing out my cam sensor the other day. I bought this 30 angled intake coupling from Amazon. I might install it tomorrow if the weather is good.

Update this thread if it fits please, quite a few members have asked about replacing this component and I've never heard what actually fit and what didn't.

OK...it works! I had to cut some off from both ends and do my best to match the shape of the original. For anyone who does the same, I recommend leaving about 1/4" extra length on both ends because the stretch will shorten the length a bit. I cut mine the exact same length as the original, came out a bit short, but good enough to stay put with the clamps on there. The hardest part is trying to get the tube over the lip as it is a bit tight.

For future reference, its a 3 inch diameter 30 angled tube.
