Should I upgrade the turbo-to-intake manifold clamp?
I ordered a replacement v-clamp for the turbo-to-intake manifold connection without realizing the OEM one looked like a large "gates" hose clamp with v-channel pieces spotwelded to it. Is that clamp a known weak point, or am I good to go with using the same part?
I was figuring it was a band clamp with a bolt on it, like used on the exhaust downtube connection, but hadn't actually looked it up before buying (it was only $11 for the clamp).
