    Ive been planning some of the final touches for my turbo setup, and one of the things im going to do is a custom 3" exhaust. i thought about using v-bands to connect the different sections on my exhaust. i looked around on the net, full-race has kits for like $50, other places are about the same. well, ss auto chrome has them for $40 a set. its a $28 difference after shipping.

    so, my question is, does everyone think a v-band kit from SSAC would be a safe buy? or should i spend the extra cash and get some from full-race?

    i know they have shitty manifolds, headers, and everything else. but, i cant see how someone could make a shitty v-band clamp.

    opinions please!

    Absolutely NOT. SS Autochrome could fuck up an oil cap.

    I've read the same thing at b20vtec.com. Be better to do some more research or spend the extra cash.
