So....I've pretty much replace all my turbo related piping/hoses with all silicone, and have DDM charge tubes. I also replaced all worm gear clamps with T-Clamps EXCEPT one...the throttle body. If you've taken it off, you know it's hard to get back on and the factory did a good job of making the hose so it holds the clamp in place in the back so you can put the hose on (very smart), then easily tighten the worm gear (my Subaru Legacy GT had the same construction that held the clamp in place...nice).

I tried getting a T-Clamp on my new DDM elbow but there just didn't seem to be enough room (T-Clamps are much more bulky as you know) so I bailed and put the stock worm back on. I'm just concerned with it blowing off when I increase boost with a tune.

Anyone successful with an aftermarket clamp, and if so, which one?

thanks all for your input. Great info!

The clamp I show is the factory clamp as far as I know...it's what was on there at least and what I can fit in there. It might not be the right size but seems to hold decently.

I have a t-clamp that I'll give a try again and use Gadget's suggestion.
