    I should have a Samco intercooler Y pipe kit arriving any day now. What are peoples' views on using stainless jubilee clips - will they cut into the silicone? Alternatively, I could use a stainless T-bolt clip as per the picture below - more expensive but should not cut the silicone.

    Cheap hose clamps that have cut outs for the screw to wind onto will definitely cut into a silicone hose. Avoid this design....

    Unless you have problems with hoses blowing off the factory clips should be ok

    our Samco kits come with high quality clamps as std...........

    personally you will have far more issues using those Mikkalor clamps than even a cheap "jubilee" clip - if you want the "best" then we stock & supply Murray clamps

    My 98 Type R has nearly every single Samco hose on it and they came with stainless jubilee clips.....and not had a problem with them since the engine was put in the car about 1.5 years ago :)

    Out of choice I would go for the Murray Clamps which @asperformance recommends.
    The only thing that worked reliably when I had FMIC pipework under 1.7bar boost. The Mikalor clamps definitely didn't!
