    I'm looking to upgrade my tubing and clamps that attach my turbo intercooler piping. I'm get boost dips because the tubes between the turbo and ic piping expands like a balloon when the turbo spools. it also happens between the IC and the piping. so i need something that is a good upgrade and will look half way decent.

    I take it you just have straight tubing without the bead/roll thing on the ends.

    If so, that could be the reason...as for clamps, atpturbo.com probably has what you need.

    it's just that basic rubber plumbing that i have. the custom stuff is horrible. it flexes too much. i guess it's silicone or rubber couplings that i'm looking for. what is best for high boost.

    go to a truck stop.

    seriously.

    those rigs boost 50psi.. the couplers (usually sold in a foot length, cut to fit) don't move.

    well i'm looking at 18-20 lbs on either a t28 or hks 2835. i have the t28 right now. but boosting sucks because it stutters. my couplings look like a bull frog blowing up.
