My after market charge pipe popped off from the silicone elbow to the IC under ~23psi boost, busting a coolant connection and requiring a flat bed home to fix it. It seems the silicone elbow and hose clamp I have really suck. Any suggestions for a better connection? For example any charge pipes with a V-band?
Thanks in advance.

Arm makes a 3 inch silicone one piece lower charge pipe. Minimizes connections and you can cut long so alot of engagement
Thanks. This appears to be what I’m looking for. I ordered one from ARM and will let you know how I make out.

I've done a couple intercooler installs with upgraded piping and I have to say the arm silicone pipes are my favorite easier to fit and less connections to have leak

I'm installing one soon to I have it i just am waiting until i do my factory atf cooler delete . I currently go 3 inch to 2.5 back to 3 so that isnt ideal plus that metal j pipe heat soaks bad.
