    So Ive been having a weird problem lately where under certain situations, my throttle sticks open and the only way to unstick it while driving is to pump the pedal 3-4 times. Well upon further inspection, I found that these two rubber pieces have deteriorated on the throttle body side of the intake tube, and one was actually interfering with the throttle plate. So I pulled them out and tightened down the clamp, and it seems to be fine without the "gasket" but I was wondering if there was a way to replace just the two rubber pieces??? Or do I just bite the bullet and do the intake tube as one piece?

    It's fine. As long as it's tight around the TB opening. Mine did the same thing on 2 94's. And my current 93 is starting to rip apart. Your only going to find them used & will likely be in the same shape or get ripped apart again.

    Every time I hit the junk yard I pick up any of those in good shape I find.
