So many many moons ago I bought one of those silicone hose kits off of eBay (says SAMCO Sport on 'em). I haven't gotten around to using them until just recently to replace the coolant line that runs along the side of the head on the exhaust side into the thermostat housing (hose got too hard and clamp couldn't put down enough pressure so it started shooting out coolant onto the manifold and turbo, quite the show! ). That's when I discovered that the OEM squeeze clamps don't really fit these new hoses! I see that the kits nowadays come with a free set of SS clamps. Anyone know a place that sells just the hose clamp kit? Am I better off just getting a general purpose kit like this? Amazon Kit
Hose clamp recommendations welcome as well. I've heard T-Bolt clamps being the preferred choice for things like the IC pipes.
