  • Have you ever used V-band clamps?

    You will be surprised when you find out who actually invented these clamps, and how long they have been used.

    I have not.

    But I bet the boost guys love 'em!

      They are slick....I need to get a bunch and upgrade my stuff. If nothing else they look a lot cleaner!

        I had the old 3-bolt triangular flange connector from header to exhaust and this winter went to V-band clamps. Eliminates the leak prone gasket and makes header and exhaust removal that much easier. And thanks for the link - an interesting and surprising read!

                Mark had those custom made for his 548" engine and to use Borla mufflers under the sidepipe covers.

                    They seem to be getting more common as well. Was shooting this WAY cool '33 Chrysler with a 6.1L Hemi engine in it and guess what, he had V-bands! Cool ride!

                      I have had people complain about price but when it's all said and done they are worth every penny!
