I was under the impression that was a fairly common practice for high boost applications? Regardless, a great fail-safe way to keep those pipes pushing the boost

Supra and grand national guys have done it back in 98(some done it before that)!! lol

What would prevent those hose clamps from not blowing off, would be to

NOT use those cheap dollar store worm clamps....

Doing that on any car that's making less than lets say 1,500hp is stupid and a

waste of time and money. I know of guys that have made well over 1,000hp

at the wheels (turbo V8's) and all they use are standard piping and couplers

with good t-bolt clamps. You don't need to do this.

Vibrant makes a little kit to do the same thing. Yeah, that is a little bit overkill. He spent all that money on those connectors and he could have spent a few bucks on t clamps and had great results.. Florida hose and rubber FTW hogan.

its a volume/pressure thing. i just made 4" ic pipes for a 1300whp supra and he needed the standoffs for 30+ lbs of boost. because of it being 4" tubing at 30lbs its like 390some lbs pulling on the clamps.

i like these alot, cheaper than wiggins clamps.

here is the supra that i used the vibrant ones on

We have been making these for years now. It is a very common practice for high whp cars.
