Egg-zactly. The Cummins in my Ram had all sorts of high grade fasteners such as T-bolt bands with nyloks, which never came loose. I think I'll look around for some that might fit.T-bolt band clamps might work better, than the worm-gear style.
I was just out looking at mine again. I'm not quite clear on how that fitting works on the TB end. I see there is a little flex there. How does that seal work?Is there clearance to replace the intercooler to throttlebody tubing with metal tubing and silicone couplers?
