Default new player in the TB to IC hose?

So i heard or AVO, Tomika and gimmick and searching for this hose, i found this one




surprisingly, my biggest issue on the factory coupling is getting it to seat on the IC. the coupling on the TB is super tight, so this leak is pissing me off. i would have thrown it on today, but we are in a middle of a blizzard, so its gotta wait till tomorrow or sunday..

I did a bit of searching for issues with the OEM hose, but didn't see anything substantial. Is it a big concern?

I took my '13 in for the 7500 mile service and notice improved WOT response. Before that I noticed some stuttering once in awhile under 4th gear and up when I put the pedal down hard. I'm wondering if they tightened this up doing the 18 point inspection.

its in your head. tightening that im sure they didnt do. even if they did its not gonna fix the issue. removing the endcaps in the only oem hose solution. ive been stage 2 and 3 for 4 years and that hose has never leaked or come loose. i only removed the endcap on the tmic side of the hose. edit,i see the sti on your profile too. yours is different thatn the wrx.

The best turbo hoses have always been Vibrant in my experience, but I Haven't seen the three you mentioned. Around here I either see stock, Saamco or Vibrant.

Like Mishimoto radiator hoses,.. the Vibrant ones feel dry, like an art-gun eraser on the inside. This helps them not blow off all the time like Saamco hoses do.

The best clamps I’ve found are the fully lined Breeze constant torque. Far superior to T-bolt clamps, lighter, easier to use and much cheaper.

The two main failures of T-bolt clamps are the fact that they can't recover from heat stretching (so they end up a bit loose when used on something that gets hot),.. and that they aren't available in narrower widths than 3/4".

The ribs on the outlet of a turbo for example are about 3/4",... so with the elbow installed,.. a t-bolt clamp rides on top of the ribs,... giving it little leverage. I've had Saamco elbows and t-bolts blow off 5 times in one day.

Breeze clamps are narrower,... so they gan get down in-between those two ribs and actually do their job.

My IC to TB hose has been on and off so many times I'm thinking of replacing it. What's the size again? 70mm? (2.75")
