    Sealant? I didn't use any. I'm fairly sure the original isn't sealed on. The turbo will reach insane temps and melt the sealant anyway. Just use a jubilee clip (or similar).

    Silicone withstands high temps.... the TIP goes on the cold side so that stuff should be fine

    'insane temps' - lol

    cold side of turbo will get hot, but the oe rubber hose does'nt melt does it.

    silicon sealer is what we use...

    not a problem

    dont get carried away putting on too much, only needs a light smear else it will extrude in to the inside and make a mess
