  • My Scorpion is on the way ! What about turbo clamp ?

    Hello,

    My turbo back Scorpion is on the way ! I would like to use a brand new turbo clamp but I can't source locally the original Vauxhall but only generic 3" V-Band Clamps like this:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/OBX-S...ht_1818wt_1165


    Is this one fine ?

    Thanks

    That's what mine looked like apart from it had a spring on the thread bit. Tension spring I believe.
    Why can't you source an original vx one?

        It was off once when changed turbo.
        I can't source locally because not living in UK now.
        This is the original one:

        So, will it matter the loading spring ?

            I've always had the same clamp which has been on and off a few times when changing the turbo and exhaust etc.
