    Clamp on Turbo inlet hose keeps slipping off...

    I own a 2006 wrx (VF-43) and I have noticed the clamp that holds the inlet hose to the turbo is constantly slipping off on my STi intercooler. I have removed the entire top mount and cleaned the clamp, hose, and turbo. And still it tends to slip off. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this issue? Thanks!
    Here is a picture....

    Maybe you need a smaller hose clamp.

    Does the hose have any pressure pulling it away from the pipe?

    That hose clamp does not look to be a good choice for that hose. Get yourself a standard worm screw clamp.

    +1 for the worm type hose clamp, unless of course your running ridiculously high boost levels ( in which case you prob. wouldnt have a TMIC )...However I can vouch for those t-bolt clamps as far as quality when you do run high boost levels...

    My boost hits 21 psi on occasion ... the worm clamp holds very well.
