    Installed Venair hoses and stainless t-bolt clamps.

    I know this isn't very exciting, but the point of this thread is to recommend upgrading to these hoses if you're running at increased boost levels or have a higher mileage car. I also recommend switching to the better t-bolt clamps at the same time. If you want to buy the clamps you will need 2x 2.5", 4x 2.75", and 6x 3.25". It's a pretty easy upgrade, although the two upper intercooler to front charge pipe hoses aren't for the faint of heart. You should really have the bumper and headlamps removed, but it's still doable without any major assembly.

    Yes those clamps are for big boost cars. They are not coming off once they are on.

    I ordered them from ECS Tuning. I try not to deal with them, but they just have everything. It's just kind of a necessary evil.

    Oh super,

    My car sits out in the back shop while I trim hedges, trim trees, fix sprinkler heads, back trace wiring for the pond lamps, spray weeds, pull weeds and did I say the car sits back in the shop.

    I love spring.

    V8, did you pull the hoses for the clamp install, or just removed the bolt and "opened" the clamp to slip over hose?

    Yep, just remove the nut from the clamp and rotate it around the hose.

    Either Hoppen Motorsport or directly from Venair. James bought 2 sets directly from Venair, one for each of our cars. Maybe try shooting him a pm about the contact info as I know he had good luck dealing with one employee in specific.
