    N249 4mm vac hose clips?

    Hi, nice and simple question. Do you need to put clips on the 4mm vac hose used for the N249 bypass (BAM)? Struggling to find anything small enough.

    Thanks

    Personally, I use fairly softish hose, and put a zip tie on each joint. never had one pop off even at 23-24psi on the track car

    Oh, I forgot to mention, on the daily driver they're called Zip ties.

    When used on the track car, they're called 'Race ties'

    For a nice professional look you can use ear clips like this...

    3/16" 3-5mm - O CLIPS 2 EAR CLAMPS ZINC PLATED HOSE | eBay UK


    You will need the clamps for them though. CV clip pliers are good for this.

    But small cable ties are adequate.

    It's not just vacuum though, most of those lines see vacuum and boost

    Cable tied . The n249 is extremely simple on a BAM if anyone is thinking about it
