RXP-X - Should I replace all my clamps?
I notice on a lot of the pics of modded skis on this forum that people have replaced their stock clamps with T-clamps. Is this advisable on a ski running near stock boost? If so, which clamps should be replaced and with what? And what sizes? Thanks.

Jarrett, I found a thread a while back that laid out all the sizes etc. You can order them all from silicone intakes. I will try and find the thread. They look nice and were cheap

I had a RXP-X last year. Would highy recommend the T clamps on the exhaust manifold/water box. Also on the SC to metal pipe going to your IC.

I race my X but like the better clamps. The stock clamps are junk.
I have t-bolts on all exhaust and sc/intake fittings.
Once I did that I have had zero issues with hoses blowing off.

SS T bolt clamps on the exhaust is cheap insurance. All you need is 2 on midpipe and 1 on water box.
The others on stock setup, resonator, outlet have not been common to fail but still can be replaced.
I would never use anything but T bolt on water box to thru hull if installed.
Some have had issues with the ic hoses and stock clamps.
I dont think your going to sink if they come off but still not fun.
SS T bolts can help here also but i have seen the worm gear hold up too, but for some reason the stock oem seem to be weak.
The biggest issue on the stock ic hoses is too get a good clean seal and retighten after first rides.
They usually will seal up and need some force to remove.
I run SS T bolt on nearly everthing.
Never have had one give out and that is thru alot of mods on and off.
