Would Silicone Intake Couplers of the 164 V6 fit a 156/166 3.0 V6?

Hi guys,

as i'm having a little trouble with air leeks on my V6 i'd like to get rid of the rubber intake couplers and use silicone ones.... however i haven't found anyone selling any kind of kit for the 156 or 166 Engine.

I'm using the big runners on my 2.5 so i wonder if this kit (for the 164) might fit?

if anyone knows someone who is offering direct fit silicone couplers please let me know.

thanks

if you look at the gtv6 ones here
Alfa Romeo GTV6 Hose kits Auto Parts

they look abit crap to me.

if you get in contact with a silicone hose manufacturer, send them one of the boots and they will make you some, especially if you arrange a group buy

i was looking into it a while ago, found a place that does off the shelf ones at the right size, but i think the internals of the boots are all moulded to fit right and these ones arent, but they would fit
