Pulled off my IACV to clean it and flip it around while doing my EA81 SPFI swap, and the gasket ripped in half.


Anyone have a source or part number for a new gasket?  Or will a little RTV or gasket maker work in this application?

I used blue RTV on the IACV in my old 91 legacy with no issues. Just the usual - make sure the surfaces are cleaned up and smooth, and it doesn't take much RTV. I had some squish out the sides the first time and re-did it with less so it wouldn't create any blocks.
