    T-bolt clamp on hose from SC to TB?

    Are you guys using normal hose clamps or t-bolt clamps on the hose that goes from the SC to the TB? If I was to run a t-bolt clamp, which one should I get size wise (min diameter - max diameter)?

    My SC hose kept coming off so I tried the 2.5's. I had a very difficult time getting it on and the SC hose still came off. I tried a new hose with just a regular worm gear clamp and the hose has stayed on. I think the hose was at fault and no clamp would have held it on. I like the T-bolts but I just wish they were not as wide, the area on the neck is just as wide as the clamp and the end of the SC neck does not have much of a ridge at the end to stop the clamp from sliding off.

    Should I get a t-bolt clamp or just a standard stainless steel hose clamp?

    Everyone says t bolt. But I feel they are too wide. They dont sit in the groves on the s/c and intercooler that are ment to stop a clamp from sliding off. The tbolt ones just cover all of it. I received t bolts with my speed freaks pipe kit and I sold them all for my worm drives. Dont use the silly home depot ones that snag and strip.

    Here is the link
    http://www.mcmaster.com/#worm-drive-...clamps/=72rzqy

    They are rolled or smooth on the edges to they dont snag the coupler. And the hole back side of the worm groves are covered by a piece of metal. Hard to describe. The slots dont go all the way through. Instead they are punched almost in the metal. They things dont strip. They dont bind or snag. They just go tighter and tighter. I luv them and I wont use anything else.

    If your interested here ya go. Just pick your size.

    I even use them on my bellows and I used them on my rad4 seal. No problems. I use them on all my water lines also. I never seen a clamp with this quality. And I know what you guys mean about the shitty autozone or home depot clamps. They suck. They strip out and snag. over all suck.
