    We found out that the clamps on the lil hose from the j pipe was broke on the top and bottom. Also, the supercharger clamp on the intake broke too lol

    Good reason to replace all the crappy hose clamps with better ones before a leak sinks your ski.

    No, as you experienced a standard hose clamp can break.

    I have stainless Mikalor T bolt clamps (Right Pic) on all the large exhaust hoses and AWAB worm clamps (Left Pic) on all the smaller water hoses and supercharger outlet hose.

    With the wider band on the Mikalor clamps I used one per hose where the factory had two hose clamps in some locations. The AWAB clamps have a solid band so they do not strip or break as easily as the standard hose clamps, pic shows an AWAB vs standard clamp.
