I would think you could find a rubber one at one of your local hardware stores, might have to shop a bit.

I seriously doubt you would get a good seal on the TB with a 4" rubber adapter clamped down on the 3.5" TB. Don't do it.

PVC pipe labeled as "4 inch" refers to the ID. I see the issue. Your adapter will need to be greater than 4" ID on the tubing side, since the PVC has an OD greater than 4".

Ideally you spend a fair amount of time test fitting assorted parts at the store before buying. I did a lot of this, piecing stuff together for both a 3.5" and a 4" PVC setup, both of which I shelved once I latched onto the 3.5 SS intake.

Unless you have a scanner, I'd strongly recommend not installing that 3.4. Those planned mods are no guarantee of readiness for a pulley drop. I'm running a stock 3.8" pulley with my mods, and have up to 6deg of KR on moderate acceleration. You just don't know w/o scanning for KR.

I second this. Take some GOOD scans, before and after. Also beware, the 3.4 in the cold winter will push a lot more air, possibly generating more KR. I always raise pulley size in the winter.

If you think just a DP is enough to run a 3.4, I think you'll be disappointed. Try starting with a 3.5, seriously.

I've actually read many comments that cold winter air lets you run a smaller pulley than hot summer air. I see a lot less KR here when it's zero, than 80deg in summer, with the same size pulley.

You might have better luck finding someone in your area with a W-body, try posting on www.regalgs.org if no one here is able to help.
