Default T-Bolt clamps--How many/what sizes?

Installing PW TMIC tomorrow, and want to be sure I get enough of the proper size(s) of the T-bolt clamps.

While I'm at it, are there other places where t-bolt clamps would be helpful besides the TMIC/TB coupler...?

I searched around, and Pm'd, but haven't come up with an answer yet.

Thanks everyone.

I use regular worm clamps, use them one, maybe twice then toss them and get new ones. 99% of people dont know how to propperly install a tbolt clamp and they slip off on them anyways.

What scby said. T bolt clamps suck. All the builds out of the shop from 200 to 2000 whp turbo cars all use worm clamps

Or wiggins clamps but that's a whole different ball game.

hhhmmmm, wiggins clamshells....drool!

Either way, just get "better" quality worm clamps and you'll be fine, proper worm clamps are a couple bucks a piece actually, not sold at autozone though.

U can get t-bolt clamps for your tmic to throttle body coupler at autozone. I get em there all the time like $3-$4 tops. Are the 'worm' clamps the ones you tighten with a flat head? If so i hate em. I tend to over tighten them and then there no good..
I have looked everywhere for T-bolt clamps, home depot, Loews, local hardware stores.. No one seems to even know what they are.

yeah, flathead or size 8-10 sockets, better quality ones (most shops carry better than autozone version clamps) will last and they can be cranked on a bit.

No, the autozone 't-bolt ' clamps are pretty good. No complaints.. Its the worm style that drives me nuts..
