    T.I.P. Clip sizes?

    Does anyone know the sizes of the clamps needed for the induction hose? (APY if it makes a difference)
    I should have one arriving within the next couple of weeks (when the DV arrives) so would like the clamps at the ready. I've also got a 'turbo-intercooler' & 'intercooler-intake manifold' hoses at the ready so would like to order these 70mm clamps at the same time for A.S.A.P. fitting.
    Cheers.

    Just the ticket!!

    I was going to go for the Mikalor ones, they seem good quality clips opposed to the rusted crap thats on them just now. Is it worth spending the extra dough on these 'super-duper' clamps? I've heard a few horror stories about hoses blowing off. I don't fancy it meself.

    Mikalor are fussy on size and have less leway.

    Also the tip pipe is not under boost, so wont blow off.

    Its under vacuum. ie sucking air in.

    Holy crap, you're not wrong there! There's only 4mm of play in some of those clips! I think I'll be dodging the Mikalor then.
