Re: Intercooler



Owners of '93 and up RX-7 twin turbos have also had trouble with intake hoses
popping off under boost, especially when the throttle is closed abruptly under
high boost, which generates a pressure spike in the intake plumbing. Many are
now using T-bar hose clamps, which can sustain higher clamp loads then worm
drive clamps. These aren't generally a hardware store item, look for them at a
good hydraulic hose supply.
