T Bolt Hose Clamps
Those t bolt clamps that siliconeintakes.com sells are they any good? If they are what size do I need for sc and ic hoses?

Been running the siliconeintake T clamps for over a year without issues. They have been on and off many times. They are also 100% SS unlike some other clamps out there. I have a PX. I used 4.5" on the waterbox the 4" is too small, really need something like 4.25, but its either 4.0 or 4.5. The intercooler clamps are 2.5", exhaust 2.75". These size are off Siliconeintakes site. They size their clamps going by inside diameter of the hose you are clamping.

Thanks, mostly concerned with the ones from SC to IC and IC to TB.

One thing to note though is that I believe the silconeintake . com clamps are grade 304 stainless (one of the cheapest, most common grades of stainless steel) whereas marine grade clamps should be grade 316 stainless for the most resistance to corrosion. I know mcmaster-carr sells the grade 316 all stainless clamps, they are obviously more money because they are made of the better material. If I rode in saltwater I'd probably go with the better clamps. FWIW all the stock Sea-doo clamps on my limited were the more expensive gr. 316 SS clamps.
