Hello all!

I've used these in the past: click but could've SWORN they came in the typical 2", 2.5", 2.75", 3.0" etc flavors....? Since its been YEARS since I've ordered or used them, taking a random shot in the dark on here in case you peoples know.

Was curious if any of you could specify/clarify for me, as well as what was the best place nowadays to buy these clamps, and Vband clamps.

This is about all I need to get the T67 on the car, and haveing trouble finding them locally as well /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Thanks in advance fellas!

Might check out Columbia river Mandel benders. If they don't have a listing online give them a call.

I would just go with a Vband. Much easier and seals much better. If you search around there are some made that have a small flange machines into one side and a groove in the other. They keep they perfectly aligned and add another seal point. Worth the extra price IMO.

Interesting they don't list 3"...maybe they're out of stock...I have some on my 3" exhaust, fwiw, so I know they make them...exhaust is tubing, so the OD is the size, so that's strange they don't list a lot of the common sizes.

Yea, after a little more digging around i found a couple other options in a couple other places, but theyre for the different OD/ID type piping rather than 3"-3". Ill check out the links though!

Boosted: i dont feel the vbands are necessary, or practical for my setup at the moment. For one, im looking to weld as little as possible, for two, ill need something that i can take apart quickly/easily when at the track to replace the tcases im likely going to grenade with the T67, welded center, 4bolt and slicks/antilag. Ive also never had a problem with them sealing, either...?

Again, appreciate the link!

I am able to get those through my local Carquest store. I have a handful of them on the shelf for 3" and I think they only ran about $9 each. They have been doing great on my car the last 7500 miles. You can also try a semi truck repair place. They may have something that small......

Summit Racing has some clamps not just Summit brand but others as well. Some under $10. We have a Summit locally here and that's where I get most of my exhaust stuff, pipes, mufflers, cats, etc.
