Help! Need an O-Ring

Guys it looks like I placed an order for 3 o-rings for the intecooler but did not buy one for the TB as I thought they were th3 same, but they have different part numbers.

Does anyone have an o-ring for a 930 CIS throttle body? Placing an order for just one o-ring would blow, no pun intended, as I don't even need oil change or tune up parts.

Thanks for the help, Jeremy

I've used the one from the intercooler to charge pipe connection on the throttle body and it sealed and worked with both long neck intercoolers I've used.

It is a little smaller diameter oring but that also helps keep it snug in the groove on the throttle body while moving around the intercooler to position it on the throttle body and the long mounting studs and rubber bushings while pushing down to slide the intercooler pipe over the throttle body oring.

I've had the correct throttle body oring get pushed down and out of the groove in the throttle body a couple times when installing a long neck intercooler, so maybe mine has stretched a little.
I'd try the extra charge pipe to intercooler inlet oring you have and see if it works in the meantime. It may leak a little boost or it may seal and work fine - I know it's hard to tell.

I put silicone grease or oil on those orings before installing the intercooler so things slide together better.

Thanks for the info. I did put one of those on and noticed it was more snug that the original, which had split when pushing the IC on.

One more question do you are anyone have a picture of how the 965 IC is supposed to seat on the TB? For some reason it seems mine sits high on the TB and just covers the o-ring. My concern obviously would be boost leak.
