    Hose clamps?

    What is a better hose clamp for the intercooler, exhaust, intake..... to use. The T-Bolt style or maybe a constant torque type.

    I like the looks of those. How wide are they? I could not tell.

    I've been using the T bolt clamps from clampco. Those torq clamps do make sense though.

    you wont find a worm clamp on any profesional race vehicle...

    they all use t bolt clamps for a reason...just make sure any you buy both the clamp and the bolt are stainless ...

    a magnet will tell you if it sticks it isnt stainless..

    Not fancy ,Durable and strong as hell...They use them at my job on the semis for the turbo and IC couplers...They work the same way a band clamp does with uniform clamping, unlike a conventional hose clamp..Plus unlike a band clamp you cant over tighten these and break off the stud..

    Snoman, What size are you going to use for your IC hoses? And are you going to use them on the SC outlet? I like the t-bolts, but they are just so damn wide. There is not much room on the SC outlet for those t-bolts. These clamps dont look as wide as the t-bolts.
