Default STI 565cc o-rings?

Anyone know where to get the o-ring that connects the top of the o-ring to the fuel rail? I have been using my stock RS rings and they need to be changed out. For some reason I think that the STI o-ring is not quite as chubby being that the RS ones just barely fit on the injector. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,
M|key

Try an Ace Hardware store...the one in my neighborhood has a bunch of trays with o-rings in a wide range of sizes. I didn't actually do this, because I was able to reuse the o-rings from my stock injectors.

(wrong forum, btw)

Why not try a Suby dealer? I'd be interested in the price for both top and bottom O-rings.

I tried that on past Honda motors and it didn't work. They didn't have them thin enough. I ended up getting them from the dealer for cents. I'd go that route, as you don't want a fuel leak.

Be sure you get o-rings made of a material that can handle being continuously exposed to gasoline. Gasoline can eat through normal rubber.

Thanks for the replys guys. I just decided to go with OEM, even though they are $3.00 a pop. I guess spending $12.00 on 0-rings is better than spending any downtime on the side of the road waiting for a trailer to come and haul me off.
