talk to a real race team. ask them if they would use a cheaper clamp, or a proven clamp. failure can cost a lot more then a little down time.
It is okay to admit you spent money on a lesser product because you value looks over function.

Porsche 919
Audi R8 (diesel you wanted)

Let me know when they're pushing 125psi - 150psi of boost like the "shake you to death" diesels, then we'll talk. Until then, sit on the porch with those gay colored clamp.

I did go and pull the two 3in clamps out of the trash, so you can purchase them. Money talks!

Wonder who decided on the color, Adel or Wiggins? I know from a guy's standpoint, it's sometimes better to just end the argument and let the woman decide on a color.

Still mad that you spent money on a lower quality product? seems to be a trend.

To be clear, you couldn't pay me to buy a diesel, but when testing components like this, nothing is going to be as violent/destructive as a cranked up turbo diesel. Also, anyone that works on diesels in any way, knows Locktite is your friend. They will shake things loose.

I cannot believe that this thread is still going.

Are we seriously at a point where arguing about the clamps used on charge piping is a thing?

I prefer Wiggins. You prefer Vibrant.

Yay. They serve the same purpose, and I prefer clamps that don't "say shit" on them. Both are rated for pressures FAR higher than any Gasoline application, and virtually any diesel as well.

But.......

Wiggins didnt make a clamp known to rip in half so often that they recalled them and replaced them. Vibrant did. It was called the Vanjen Clamp and is the original design of the one you are using. So, there's that. LOL

And for what its worth, they ALL have flaws... be it assembly hassles, galling risk, or otherwise.

Well aware of "VanJen" Vibrant clamps. Glad they had the balls to go to the high pressured diesels. You are not only dealing with pressure, but torque twisting movement, something you will never see from a mosquito. I pulled the two 3in clamps out of the trash. Money talks!

LOL, you act like I wont buy those clamps from you. Fuck, I will buy them at this point just so you shut your pie hole about them.

Come up with a reasonable price that isn't going to make me buy them at wholesale and burn them in your honor and actually state what it is.

I am sure they will look great after I re-anodize them like I always do and toss them on a customers build.

OH EM GEEEE.... they look HORRRRRRRRRIBLE.

Better than you running your asshole, isn't! If you don't like my post, go fuck in another direction! No one is forcing you to reads posts. I'm guessing you make your own choices.

You know, someone who actually wanted to sell something, would take time away from being an asshole, to actually post pictures and condition of EXACTLY what they are selling.

What condition? With flanges? Without flanges? With couplers? Without couplers? With Orings... without?

You must be new at this. Offers dont get made when shit isn't even known. For all I know they are galled up cracked garbage with bent couplers, no flanges, and no Orings. In which case, you can file them right where they previously were.

And you are right, I know exactly what they are worth, new and at wholesale. If you thought you were going to get retail from me, then you are even dumber than I thought.
