Does anyone know where I can buy a silicone adapter to adapt from the Draxas MAF adapter to three inch tube. I got my CAI installed but I have the silicone tubing siliconed to the adapter.

That is tha correct web site but the wrong catagory. What you want are in the "transitions/reducers" NOT "couplers/connecters". They have the 3.5" to 3.0" reducer you will need for it.

Salvador, is this where you got mine?? If not, where did you get them??

Well then I screwed up.

I bought the 3 to 3 1/4"

I bet I can make it fit.

btw Those guys could be convicted of **** for the prices they charge.
I went ahead and bought the reducer but I only paid about $12.00 for 3 feet of 3" silicone tubing on ebay.

I received my adapter today. Apparently I checked next day air on the shipping.

I hope the 3 1/4" to 3" fits because I gave $67.12 including freight for the one I have sitting on my desk.

Of course it doesn't really matter because I only use money as a reference point anyway. You can ask my kids, anytime they ask for something and I tell them I don't have the money they say just use your plastic.

Just got mine today :D . I'm happy about this cause, now I can put my CAI and brand new K&N filter on

btw Sal, unless you asked for a different kind of reducer or they sold you a different kind of reducer, than the ones you sold me aren't from that company.
MWT since you got yours today also, I'm sure you can tell which ones which.

left my camera at work but mine doesn't look anything like those. Mine is just a straight blue 3.25 by 3 silicone reducer.
It does say turbo hoses on it.

It doesn't look anything like the one on the left? The only thing that looks similar is the word "turbo hose" on the side??
I figured it would look exactly the same, except for the color difference.

Damn dude, you should have gone ebay. Wouldn't have been more than 20 bucks. I bought 1 foot of 3" silicone tubing (to cut up to make connectors) for like 27 bucks shipped.

I did buy the tubing from ebay pretty cheap. The problem was the adapter to the 3" tubing. The 3" silicone wouldn't fit.

Yeah, you'll need a 3.50" - 3.00", Maybe a 3.25" - 3.00" will work but it might be a bit tight. A 3.0" like you descirbed will be VERY tough to get on and probably isn't good for the coupler to be stretched like that.
That's why they make different sizes

The 3.25 to 3.0 was a tight fit but worked just fine.

Which is the size for the Vulcan? Is it 3.25 > 3.0? Just wondering ... What is the tube size in the Vulcan? I think its 3.0" right? Anyone in here know about this?
