    Help with upper intake boot

    Hi guys, I have a small issue with the upper intake boot. I received the boot, which is much longer than one currently installed on my car. Part numbers is correct and I verified it on several websites. There is one difference between them however. Correct parts had the following numbers stamped: 1 438 761 D1, while incorrect has everything the same expect it had D3 at the end.
    I am going to return the part without a problem, but how should I make sure that I am ordering a correct one. On all sites I am seeing this part number: 13541438761.
    On the picture, top part is what I have installed and bottom one is what I recieved. As you can see, they are very different in length.
    Anybody had this issue in the past?

    That is the correct P/N



    I've never had this issue, but I usually cut the old boot off. Maybe the heat/cold cycles make the boot actually shrink.

    Thanks Dane.
    It's realy wierd. I tryed to intall it and didn't come nice. After I placed the air box back, it made a bent and deformation of the boot.
    I am going to call FCP and find out of that D1 or D3 mean anything l.

    I tried searching around on google, but couldn't find a boot with the ridges on the end like your old one.

    I did not. I changed lower intake boot ad well and it sits perfect.
    I am going to give a call to FCP and ECS and see what they going to tell.
    According to Real OEM upper boot us suitable for all M54 engines.

    The ridges were caused by the hose clamps. The boots are obviously different - will be interested to hear the solution/answer.

  10. I know this is an old thread but I just went through a related issue. My 03 ZHP had a cracked upper intake boot. So I purchased a replacement from ECS. I wanted to save a few bucks so I went non-OEM. I know there are some things where this doesn't matter but it did on this one. I had to stretch the new boot to make it fit on the MAF end by the airbox and the whole process took 2+ hours (I should have informed FCP Euro at the time but I did not). That was two months ago. It got really cold here and a hairline crack developed in the new boot where I stretched it. It was small but enough to give me the P0171/174 code(s). New boot showed up today. It fit like a glove and got the whole job done in under 15 min. Live and learn. I will now inform FCP.
