    Edlebrock 90mm T/B

    Okay, I searched, searched, Googled, and searched. I have a 90mm Edlebrock T/B and my smooth below will not work. I don't want to hear from the guys that heated it up in water and stretched it because its not even close, I tried. The O.D. of the T/B is 4 1/2 inches and the mass air is 3 1/2. How the hell do I connect them? It seems people have pretty good luck with the FAST 92 and the SLP bellow, but I guess hind site is 20/20. Any ideas?

    How about a no hub? At Home Depot. I don't know all their sizes off the top of my head, but you could prob find one that would work.4" x 3" Fernco Pipe Connector Coupling P1002 43 | eBay Maybe one like this.

    Oh yeah. I would not be worried. I was not able to find an adapter that would work with my factory setup. I got the 3x3 and it stretched pretty good. It was a PITA to get on the first time, but it held its shape, and it is not a problem at all now. Find that part at one of your home improvement stores, and take a tape with you. Get it so it is close, then take it home, and wrestle it in. I mean, what are you out? 5-10$? I think it will work great. Start it on the biggest side, and work it like a starving stripper. If you have to, heat it up. The heat cycles of your engine should cement it at the measurement you need. I am sure that everyone on here will agree. We reccomend using the Fernco stuff, it is waay cheaper. My smooth bellows was off more than a half inch, and it turned out great. I have an extra here in the garage, but you are a little far away, and it is a 3x3. Wouldn't work for you.

    I agree. It only needs to stretch 1/4" per side. Heat it up and it will go on with enough elbow muscle.

    I'm interested in finding out what kind of improvement you see with the 90mm. Let us know.
