20V Intercooler strapping

Why would you do this when the system has (or should have) a bypass valve -
this effectively eliminates any need for strapping/reinforcing, and should be
retrofitted to the 10Valve engines as well. I no longer recommend strapping
but instead a bypass valve which has multiple benefits.

In the process of getting the 20V back together after the valve seals. Had
some hose clamps from a flowmaster heat shield which work length wise
(around IC). Unlike the 10V's the left side of the IC is angled. There's a
small protrusion which I've tightened the clamp against, but how have others
dealt with this? Think it will hold, but thought I'd ask....
Last thing to fix before the chip install was the valve seals, so seeing as
how the IC is already out figured now was a good a time as any to strap!!!
(Besides, finally got the trim clips for the front chrome, don't want to
take the grill back out)
