Default Help with Parts for LIM Repair

I posted a while back asking about this and got a list of parts I would need (even though I'm having a mechanic do the work). My problem has been finding them. Here'* my list:
Aluminum LIM gasket - got it.
Supercharger gasket & o-rings - no one around here has them. Found them on intense-racing, they sell the o-rings in pairs - do I need just one pair?
2 Dorman coolant elbows - couldn't find those around here either and the guy that I asked didn't even know what they were So where do I get these? A part # would be great.
Injector o-rings - being somewhat ignorant, is this the fuel injector, supercharger, or something else we're talking about? Should I just let the mechanic take care of these instead of buying them myself?
Any other parts I don't know about? I'm going to have them flush and refill with Prestone Extended Life, All Makes, All Models. I'm also going to get an oil change and shortly after I'll change the supercharger oil. Thanks for your help!

I found the coolant elbows at the dealer for only $5.00 a piece.

Try looking on www.partsamerica.com or www.autozone.com/home/htm or www.rockauto.com or www.gmpartsdirect.com

Those have helped me the most.

Injector o-rings = fuel injectors, 2 o-rings for each.

For the SC gasket, you only need one pair of yellow o-rings.

I personally..would hop up on PartsAmerica.com

The SC gasket includes the O rings and it'* about $7
The o-rings.. gosh..I'd reconize the number if I saw it. Get three boxes..there'* 4 rings per box.
Coolant elbows..that'* either an Autozone in the help section or internet..

I don't have the Dorman P/N here in front of me, but a quick search turned up a bunch of reference threads. Here'* some info from one of them:

GM Coolant Bypass Elbow: PN# 24503423

It'* in our TECHINFO section under:

'95-03 Upper Intake Failure Information

Oh...wait a minute...here'* a thread that specifically addresses the Dorman coolant elbow P/N:

Thanks for all the help! I've also decided to have the throttle body cleaned while I'm at it, so I'll have them replace that gasket, too. I found it on Intense-racing. I looked at partsamerica for the supercharger gasket and o-rings, but they didn't have it One last question - from what I've read I need two different coolant elbows which are both sold together from Dorman, part 47065. Is that right? I'm going to try Advance Auto Parts since AutoZone was no help. But if I can't find them, Intense-racing has an upper and lower elbow - are those the same ones I need? They seem a little expensive on there, though... Thanks!

Wow! Thanks for posting about RockAuto!!! I was able to find EVERYTHING I needed on there for less than $25 with shipping
Fuel injector o-rings - $6.12 for all 12
Dorman coolant elbows - $2.48
Felpro fuel injection plenum/supercharger gasket and o-rings - $7.90
Throttle body gasket - $3.39
Is there anything I'm missing or should have the mechanic do while he'* at it? One thread I read said something about replacing the valve cover gasket. Once again - thanks for the help!

If your valve covers aren't leaking.. no needl to do them. If they are..this is the perfect time as they are easily accessible.

Same goes for plugs and wires. When the top is off the engine..you should be able to get to the rear plugs much easier.
