I borrowed this pic from Phatvw in the DIY section, so thanks Phatvw
On my 01 Limited Outback this intake boot is torn pretty badly which is of course letting warm air in which (defeating the purpose of the designed intake system.
I think this pic is from an 03, but it should be about the same... I can't seem to find the exact name or part number to order a replacement. It is the rubber joint boot that connects the 2 solid pieces of the intake system outlined in red in the pic with an arrow...
No local shops know and say its probably a dealer only item...Any suggestions? of course i would like to stay away from the dealer and their costs
