We just made 3 inch V-Band Intercooler Flanges. You still need to keep rubber
at the Throttle Body and the Turbo for Movement. But this is a good pretty solid
alternative to the expensive Wiggens Clamp. We sell these for $78 shipped
Which includes both Flanges w/ o-ring in which 3 inch piping slips into and just needs to be welded, and the V-Band Clamp itself which was custom made for us.

Dealers welcome

These are O-Ringed.. We will be making 2.5 and 2.75 as well but we need an
order of 40 or so to process it.

Heres a few pictures if you guys have any questions feel free to call me
or pm / email me.










Thanks,
Daryl G

I think the majority of users have IC with 2.5" in and out on this board. They look great though man! I just wish I could afford them, lol.

Thanks Matt. Yeah Im 100% positive that most will need 2.5 and 2.75.. These are mainly for race cars. Ill post the street car versions. When they are completed. And if anyone wants to put together a group deal just contact me.. Im 100% Up for that.

i would be interested as well if you guys could do a 2.5 "street version"
I will keep you posted to when the 2.5 versions are ready. It will be pretty soon.
Just trying to finish some other projects we are currently behind on.

Thanks,

Stainless steel or aluminum?

Wiggins clamps work alot different, you can have up to 5 degrees of misalignment with them and they will flex and seal up to that. These look just like v-band exhaust flanges and won't have any movement. You might as well weld the ends together instead of using the clamps.
Siliconce coupling will be needed at the TB and/or turbo to compensate for flex if theses clamps are used. The only way to allow for some movement would be to use a thicker O-ring.
Even with a thicker O-ring the ability to compensate for flex will be minimal.

Hey Matt is the New ( Honda-Tech Echo service loaded? ) This isnt a wiggens clamp. You will use rubber on the tb and turbo as stated above. Its listed as a
good cost effective alternative.

question....have you run these on street car yet? i have some pretty solid mounts in my b13, and the motor still moves. if you replace all the connections with these steel and almuminum v-band clamps.....doesnt all the movement translate to the TB and comp outlet coupling? even with hump hoses on those two, i dont know if there is enough "play" to compensate. meaning, wont those two connections just pop off instead?

I think I would only use them at the IC so you don't have the ugly clamps up there. All the rest of the piping would be silicone couplers and T bolt clamps as usual.

These will mostly be used in situations like you stated on street cars. As for Race cars you can use in more places. These ones are aluminum and steel ones will be made in the future if the demand is high enough. As for now the aluminum ones are selling alot. 2.5s are next in line.
