A silicon hose is a very simple device, as are hose clamps, this should be a 
install and forget it type mod, clamps should not loosen, you are probably 
not tightening them enough, you will need more than a screwdriver, you should 
use a 1/4" drive. Keep the hose, it should be fine, there are not a whole lot 
of variables to it.   And 23 psi boost is A LOT of boost, "only 23psi", so 
what is high boost, 35psi??  

Good Luck

<< Hey All,
    I only have a Stage 1 upgrade from MTM, has anyone here ever run
 stock intercooeler hoses and had no problems? Casue I'm tired of the
 silicon hose leaking cause the clamps won't hold! Can I use a stock
 hose? Cause there isn't a whole lot of new boost from the stage 1
 upgrade, it only is like 22-23 psi of boost!?!?!?!
