Default 4" - 3" coupler

I hate to bring this back up again, but anybody out there that'* done the ricer intake, I really need some help. I have looked under chairs and looked under tables, tryin to find somewhere I can get this coupler. I know it needs to be 4"-3" but I have looked everywhere. Can somebody give me some pointers where I can find this?? Or maybe some help on piecing something together. It'* killin me I got a 180* t-stat and the intake that are begging me to install them.

Thanks,
Tim

At Auto Zone I bought an intake kit for a Honda Civic that came with the pipe and a rubber boot for the intake.

The boot fit on my 2001 SSEi intake, does that help?

This kit was in bubble plastic out on the floor.

Tim I did this up on my 95 last weekend and put some decent pics etc in this thread.

The coupler went really easy even though most would suggest a reducer... just caught the bottom lip, put my hands inside and stretched/slid it up and on.

You know my thoughts on those. Bad news for you, especialy with that plastic upper intake.
