Inter cooler spring clamp


Recommended Posts

I used a dia caliper. Looks to be 3.3". Grip range 3-4" looks like it'd work.

The new T-bolt clamp I have is 3.5" and it will work great, only problem is IDK if I can get my old spring back on there. I will try at least otherwise I was told it is not necessary

Mine do not have any spriings on them and they hold just fine.

So I go the boot on Friday and I just want to say even with lubrication that was a massive PITA. I had to disassemble the hot side of the system so I could get it to line up and fit. It took me and another person to squeeze on that boot to the hot side pipe with the help of a small flat head screwdriver. I never cussed so much to put on a boot or a hose in all of my life. Anyways the old boot had a slight tear in it. After installing it all I found no difference in power, boost or anything? Kinda weird if you ask me..

I used an impact wrench on mine and found out the hard way that was the wrong thing to do.  The metal that goes over the little tabs on the bolt is very thin and the impact pulses slammed the tabs against the paper thin metal so much that eventually when I hit 35psi, it blew the clamp apart.  

 

Since then I ordered a spring loaded clamp to replace that one.  It is rated at 100psi and the spring means it kinda sets it's own tension, but I no longer use an impact  :duh:   I don't think an impact should be used on any of the intake horn bolts either as I started to notice a little degradation in how snug the bolts were getting.  I use it to get them down but I don't let it hammer, I do all the final tightening by hand now.  

 

I got the 100psi clamp from bddieselperformance.com for $7.60 on halloween 2011.  I see they don't seem to sell them individually anymore and the places you can are charging $20 a piece.  If you look hard enough I'm sure there are still some cheap vendors out there.
