pipe air intake problem

I'm fixing up my air intake on my EB2 Fairmont ghia. I got a nice bit of 3 inch exhuast made up, with a 90 degree mandrel bend. Ive gotten it chromed and now all i need to to is run it from my throttle body to my uni filter ram pod. (the reason i'm doing this is because at the moment the pod sits hard up agianst the inner guard of the car) The only problem is where do i get the rubber/silicon? sleeves to go from the throttle body (80mm) to the pipe (75mm) and to the ram pod (75mm) so they can all be airtight and connect nicely with those screw up clamps.

i live in canberra, any help would be great!

Any place that does turbo parts should have them. www.vpwmailorder.com based in melbourne have them and deliver australia wide if you can't find any locally.

I have seen these parts at Autobarn - not sure if there are any near where you are. but they usually have them in varied sizes and colours, if they dont have it in stock they will order it for you
