    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' :racer:

    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
