      I'm looking for an alternative to V-band, Hargett, or Adel Wiggins connectors. I want something that looks slim and smooth, those three are too bulky for me. It doesn't need to be flexible, but that would make fabrication a bit easier. I only need one (throttle body, no boost) so cost isn't a big deal.

      I doubt you'll find anything more compact to do what you want than a wiggins clamp.

      The wiggins clamps are easily the smallest pipe clamps. You're only other alternative is to go with a TIG welded hardpiped solution.

      Thanks, Maybe I'll just go with Wiggins. I like the Accufab clamps too, I have never seen one in person though.

      just saw this, thanks Chad.

      this setup is handling 43+ psi and low 9 sec 1/4 mile passes easily.

      and after getting and using, i wouldnt have it any other way. they work and are simple to use.

      We have just finished testing in the diesel market for 130 psi.
      Any plans for 2.75"?

      2.75 is what I need too; those look pretty good!
