What do you guys use to plug excess ports? Does it hold well to high boost? Currently using silicone hoses clamped to each other or plugged with a bolt.

I could only find rubber (will turn brittle?) or vinyl (looks way thin).

Thanks but too expensive.

Thanks guys, I just found them in McMaster and Stock Caps. Just hope that 1.5mm wall thickness is enough.

$6.47 for 50pcs EPDM (475F) or $4.21 for 25pcs Silicone (600F) (but in red)

Gona try the EPDM, rx7 forum said they work just fine.

Autozone and other parts stores sell silicone caps. They sell them in a variety pack with different sizes and colors, but they stop at a certain size. You can see it on my coolant return port, clamped down. I always cap that line when moving my tank to the side.
