Default WANTED: TURBO ELBOW

I found my turbo leak that was sucking hp on hills and toading. The flange on the 2 in end of the air intake elbow broke, and the band clamp couldn't keep the connection tight. See pic1.
Putting this on the forum as I'm looking for a Cummins Turbo Air Intake Elbow for an M-11 engine. It's a 2" X 4" elbow, p/n is 3883977-00. Pic2
Thanks in advance for any leads, spares, etc.

It’s on eBay. I just did a google search using the part number you provided in the original post. Looks like a pretty common part, you should be able to get it locally too.

Thanks for the ebay tip, Bill. I missed it on my first look. Drilled down into "6 or more new" link to find it. Order placed and will be here next week . . . . Now we'll make that FL trip!
Local cummins dealers wanted right at $100, plus or minus.

Great! We are in the FL panhandle. Give us a shout if you’re in the area.

Safe travels,
Bill

Default UPDATE

I got the ebay turbo air elbow, naked. No set screws, O-rings. A trip to the local hardware solved that. Before I buttoned everything up, I followed a tip I had received to stick a vacuum nozzle down the boost pipe towards the impeller. And wouldn't you know: I sucked up a 1" piece of the broken flange. That would have damaged the boost unit for sure. Disaster averted!! Check out the pic.
Just sharing the story in case somebody has to open their booster unit. I could not see any debris with a flashlight before the vacuum.
Now looking forward to a road test to confirm the expected improved performance.

That could have been expensive!
