Unless the hose is really split out beyond the turbo, probably all that you
need is the new clamp, the hose being much, much more expensive. Try it
It took me 3 or 4 blow-offs, (always passing under full boost, engine dies,
Oh sh*t!) before I realized that the old clamp had bottomed out and wouldn't
tighten up any more. Of course, upgrading to the IA Stage III made an
impending problem current.
Glad this idea helped.
