Hey Guys,
I'm in sydney and need to find a place preferably on the north shore that can supply me with about 10 T-bolt clamps for some intercooler piping.

Pirtek do them but they aren't open on a saturday, can anyone recommend a joint close to hornsby or north sydney?

I need approx 6 clamps to suit 3 inch piping with silicon over the top - roughly 84mm wide, and 1 clamp to suit a 2.5 pipe with silicon on top.

I just fitted a front mount to my car and these are all I need to take it for a spin.

cheers!

P.s. I know justcrap sell them but they are a mission to get to.

pirtek are normally open until 12 on a saturday, or at least my local one is.

good clamps too, if they have the right size ones. I took some bits of hose in when i bought mine to ensue they were the right size.

on the flip side. regular old worm drive clamps will do the job if they are reasonable quality

They may be a temporary solution, I'll try and get to the local pirtek but last time I cruised by on a saturday they were closed...

The local auto one had some proper T-bolt clamps, not as good as the pirtek ones, but not bad, I could go these, but they are about 2mm to small, and you have to take the nut off the end and squeeze them together really hard just to get a few threads on the clamp, I think they were 79-85mm in size.

Just an update on this, my recommendation is to not get the t-bolt clamps that have a straight bolt with adjustment on either end.

Get the ones that have the single nut on one end, and the bolt is bent in the middle.

The straight bolt ones squash the piping, whereas the ones with the bent bolt that are cheaper in design and cost work and fit alot better.
