    My cold side clamp on the hose side decided it no longer wanted to work. I tightened it 2x and both times it failed. So I am going to upgrade at a min that connection. What coupler and clamps do y'all recommend? Is it best to just get the AFE piping which comes with their hose and clamps?

    I usually just get stock replacements but if your truck is tuned and pushing a lot of boost IV welded a small tall bead on the pipes to give it a little more clamp bite and it works pretty good

    Got an entire kit that includes the hoses, couplers, clamps and intake for $169 at DK Engines.

    I got an aftermarket pipe kit the boots and clamps sucked in it. I put OEM boot and clamps on. Just clean the pipes good with brake cleaner and put a little Aqua Net hair spray on them. They will stay on then.
