T-Bolt Clamps for Intake Piping and Radiator Hoses
We now carry t-bolt clamps in a variety of sizes. These are the best way to securely clamp your intake, intercooler couplers, piping, and hoses. They use a threaded screw/nut and smooth overlapping metal which is much easier to securely tighten than the more-common worm-thread clamps.
NOTE: These clamps are sized assuming the OD of the *coupler* you are using. For example, if you have a coupler you are using to connect 3.0" piping, you would actually need 3.25" clamps - a 3.0" coupler is measured based on the ID, but the clamps obviously are measured on the OD. Piping is typically measured by OD, couplers are typically measured by ID (so they correspond to the pipes).
3000GT/Stealth Typical Sizing
NOTE: These are approximates - measure before you buy!
* Stock Radiator Hoses use 1.50"
* Y-Pipe/Intake Pipes to Throttle Body typically need a 3.25" for the pipe and 3.00" for the TB
* Fabric stock IC pipes typically 1.75"
* Thicker rubber stock IC pipes typically 2.00"
