Of a course you do.

Just like the other guy said, use the stock clamps.

Yes, re-use the existing clamps.
Some of the clamps are the spring-loaded type and are best removed/installed with a tool made for the purpose or alternately, pliers that can get around the tabs and compress them fully to release the clamp tension.
The toughest one to deal with is on the bypass (BOV) valve hose. It's easier if you unbolt the valve from the I/C, then remove the I/C from the car. Once it's out you'll have more room to get to the clamps on that hose.

Well, I replaced all of the clamps. Cheap insurance. And now I have extra clamps if something goes wrong.

You should replace the bypass valve hose spring clamps with new ones you can screw on and off, it will make life easier.

I personally am not a fan of the stock clamps. I like the traditional type with the screw and threads that run along side the clamp itself.

ditto to the bypass clamp. I am not as mechanically inclined as alot of you guys are and got frustrated taking that almost impossible upside down clamp off.

Pay a few bucks and get rid of those stock clamps.

The BOV return line spring-clamp is a real pain in the butt. Here's a tip from some previous NASIOC thread though which worked very well for me when I did the work:

- Douse spring-clamp area with WD40. While that's penetrating...

- Get a coat hanger and use needlenose pliers to create a hook/loop on one end (a tight one, not a big sweeping one). Try to make the hook in one or two bends so you don't weaken the metal too much

- Insert hook into spring-clamp tab (hard to see)

- Lean over the engine bay and pull straight up on the hanger. Do this until the spring-clamp tabs are up top where you can get to them instead of turned down into the engine.

- Fight with the clamp now that you can work with it, get hose off

- When you replace the BOV line finally, use a worm-screw hose clamp instead of that spring POS.


Leave the BOV return line stock! There's no reason at all to replace it really. Same with the throttle body connector hose. The main thing you care about is the Y hose.

Hehe - that looks like my post after I did Vishnu IC hoses.

Agreed, the spring clamp is a complete PITA, but I didn't bother replacing mine, after my IC has been off like 6 times (don't ask) I think I've got the technique down. Now that I think about it a worm gear clamp might be nicer - not to mention more "consistent" with the rest of the clamps.
