Boost tube clamp recommendations

Got my Riff Raff boost tube boots. Looking for recommendations on which clamps to use.

They should come with clamps for as much as they (and everywhere else) charge for the boots! I just got hot side boots from Riffraff. I only saw t-bolt clamps on their site, didn't see any spring clamps.

Maybe no need for them, but my factory clamps are spring style and the clamps that were included with my BD intake kit are spring style, so spring style is what I personally want. To each their own, just saying I didn't see them available on Riffraff's site if the OP wanted spring clamps. I do prefer the spring style.

Siring or no-spring I don't have a preference yet. That's the info I am looking to learn.

So far for clamps we have OEM, Napa & Riffraff and spring vs no-spring...

Napa ones are dirt cheap and hold far better than the stock spring style in my opinion, they have every size you would need also, the clamps are good quality for the price.
