air intake boot

well, i have noticed my idle getting jumy and i isuspect a vacume leak because there are tiny cracks in the ruber vacume boot(is that the proper term?). Anyhow, I was just wondering, are there any alternatives to the rubber OEM boot (aftermarket). And if so, what is the benifit of the aftermarket peice, if any.

Any information or links to a place thats selling these kind of things would be great.

jakub

autopartsway.ca likely has one cheap. i replaced mine for peanuts as I recall. Electrical tape FTW tho.. it is matte black and closer texture to the boot.

Its an M30 AFM from the looks of it. They were probably adjusting the little deally on the inside. Tape is to hold the cover back on. I would have just siliconed it shut.
