    I bought these clamps from extreme psi with my new coolant lines. You have to take the nuts off lube up the spots they go and work them on hard, then use channel locks to get them to close enough to get the nut on. They work great just fit hard. 20200721_121551.jpg

    Like silver said, you need bigger ones. They aren’t supposed to be that had to get one. You can find t bolt clamps like that on amazon. I have also bought some from frozen boost.

    I love extremepsi and buy most of my stuff from them, but siliconeintakes.com has hands down the best price on couplers and clamps.

    I second this! This is where I buy all of my couplers and clamps as well - the value can't be beat.

    I love extremepsi too, they listed those as the clamps that go with it and they work just hard to get on

    Yeah you need at least three threads through the nut for them to be the right size and safe man. Should not be that tough to get them on and torqued.

    Guys, I have my local parts store order "Heavy Duty Hose Clamps" (T-bolt clamps). They stock them for us since it is easy to strip one when you are trying to hold in 40lbs of boost on intercooler couplings. I don't know if anyone has asked their local stores, but that's what my Orielly's carries.
