    Throttle body hose popping off - Best clamp?

    I had a great day at the lake today, topping out at 75 with the mods below when all of a sudden I lost power and heard a very loud supercharger whine. I looked under the seat and saw that the hose to the throttle body had popped off. It didn't take long to put it back on and everything ran fine after I put it back on, but I want to make sure that it doesn't happen again. Would a t-clamp fix that issue and if so, what size would I need? Is there anything else I might look at that can prevent that from happening again?

    Thanks!

    Make sure you clean off any oily residue with some rubbing alcohol on the hose before re installing any clamps... I recommend using AWAB clamps. I would never run T bolt clamps. Thats just my option

    Clean it real good, then spray the mating sufaces with hairspray.

    Smooth Band Hose Clamps have no perforations and a smooth inside cover to prolong the life of your hose. AWAB SS Hose clamps are designed to provide high clamping force. They will reliably continue to develop a 360° sealing force around the hose when tightened and can be reused many times thanks to the high quality design.

    Features:

    Made from 316 Stainless Steel
    Rolled band edges to eliminate the risk of damage to the hose
    The inside of the band is smooth not perforated
    These clamps have excellent shape retention
    Designed to be immune to vibration back off
    Designed to be used in environments with a high risk of corrosion
    Alloy 316 Stainless Steel is an exceptionally corrosion resistant stainless steel alloy with properties that make it ideal for use in corrosive environments.
    Most other 300-series stainless alloys are just Chrome-Nickel alloys, but 316 has 3% Molybdenum added. This added alloying element increases its resistance to crevice corrosion and stress-cracking corrosion, and reduces its ability to be magnetized. 316 stainless is an ideal material for marine, chemical, wastewater, and other harsh environments. The higher cost of the material is more than offset by significantly longer service life and a negligible failure rate.

    i have used those before on my cars and didn't have any problems. i prefer t-bolts though. the reason i got one is because NAPA had them and no-one in town had a t-bolt clamp the size i needed.

    So is this the clamp that I would need to get for the throttle body? Would it be smart to change the clamp from the supercharger at the same time?
