Has anyone found a replacement for the OEM plastic air intake tubes?.
Looking at replacing both of mine.
With the cost exceeding $500 for both I thought I would check to see if anyone had found a cheaper yet better alternative?.
Thanks for the read.

What I've done is wrapped my intake tubes in aluminum-coated bubble wrap and metal tape. It seals them up and insulates them from the high engine temperatures and makes the running temperature of the engine drop significantly. Sounds kludgy but it really works!!

I think most people endeavour to keep stock, which is likely why you did not get a reply. On my '88 I found that standard aftermarket air tubes and junctions can be adapted:





I totally would not go with Red if I did it again - black is readily available. The price is a tiny fraction of OE.

I had to finally sign up after stumbling across a link to this forum, and seeing this thread.

I just started working of fixing a 1978 928 that I was given, after objecting to a friend planning on scrapping it for the aluminum and copper.
There are numerous things broken or missing after years of neglect, but one of the things that bugged me the most, was just the visual impact of the intake tubes being missing, and how incomplete it looks under the hood, with them not present.

I think I'll have to model and 3d print a coupler to connect the tubes, and to tie into the timing belt vents, but having the tubes easily available makes it feasible.
