IAC gasket & injector seals

Anybody between Seattle and Blaine know where I can find these gaskets? I need the injector o ring between the fuel rail and intake and a IAC gasket, which here in Vancouver BC, seems the only option is to buy from dealer but I make semi frequent trips to Seattle so I wouldn't mind knowing a place that would have them for sure. I checked napa and some other place that was a Uni-select place, who checked with world PAC (which I work for) who doesn't stock either of them.

I could not find these injector seals anywhere, and I needed to get my car running asap....I ended up using the originals again. Call a dealer and ask them.

Dealer wants almost 17 each for the seals, and 132 for the IAC gasket.

prdonline carries the injector o-rings, I don't know if they're a good vendor or not, just stating where I saw them.

You can quickly, easily, and cheaply make your own IAC gasket. Probably cost me $5 to make 1. With a sheet you could probably make about 5-10 of them no problem.

If I remember correctly, the v6 iac has a channel for the gasket to sit in, it's not two flat mating surfaces.

Edit: It looks like the channel is on the tb side: https://www.mx6.com/forums/587764-post6.html

Oh that's really neat to see, thanks PaulG. Hmmm the 3rd image there shows where the rubber seal was removed and the mating surfaced machined flat. That might be something to consider.

They were not machined flat, the rubber seal groove is on the TB, not the IAC!

Can either of these seals be reused? I'm asking cause the IAC is no good and isnt being replaced cause its leaking, and same with the injector seals.

Rock auto doesn't seem to have the part for the V6, 2.5L. Most website that carry it doesn't ship to Canada.

If the MX-6 IAC is going to have a problem with longevity due to those seals you guys might want to figure out a tutorial for machine them down, inserting a fiber gasket, and drilling the ports back to match up. Might not be a bad way to go otherwise you're going to have to continually replace the whole thing over stupid little seals. As you can see from the image above the 626 doesn't have that issue and is a breeze to replace. Just food for thought.
