The rubber grommets on the bottom of the stock air cleaner housing need replacing and I've been unable to find them.If pictures are needed please let me know.
1. Does anyone know where I can buy parts.
2 Will a newer filter housing fit.
3. Do I end up buying a CAI instead
I would rather have stock if possible.

A K47 intake from a 97'+ GM/Chevy Diesel will fit in there.

My 95 was the same way. Looked everywhere around where I live and couldn't find them. Also couldn't find a K47 airbox and tubing for a diesel. I ended up getting the S&B filter kit. I like it and its not to badly priced. It installed pretty quickly and easily. So there are options out there if you cannot find what you need.

Really. The only good choices you have for a better intake system. Is the GM K47 from a later model GM DIESEL not gas. Or the S&B. The other aftermarket CAIs I have seen, suck hot air from the engine compartment. Which will cut power, may cause de fueling when towing or pushing it on hot days. Because IAT gets too high. 6.5 need cold air from outside.

Haven't been able to locate a GM K47 out in my area as of yet. The S&B is a good filter I have no concerns about buying one. I read the reviews and some customers stated that the clear plastic cover had cracked that's all.

Keep an eye on eBay. Browse car-part.com and watch the marketplace section here, they do sometimes pop up

No problem thats what we are here for. I don't have much knowledge but I try to share what I have. I just wish there would have been one that close to me when I was looking. As of now the closest I can find is 500 miles away.

Based on my experience, the vendor on car-parts.com are not reliable in updating their inventory.

I've always wondered how reliable getting things updated would be.
