Default V-Band Clamps

So, I picked up an exhaust from Artech.

However, I need to source the v-band clamps.

I was hoping for an ever-awesome recommendation from you yahoos about a place where I can source said v-band clamps. Who makes good v-band clamps for exhausts?

I'm in the same boat as you. I have the Tial V-Bands for the WG but i need 1 more for the flange where the separated DP connects to the main DP. The flanges look like Tial flanges which makes me believe that they are a very specific size that only Tial makes....

Did you get a full exhaust or only part? I was under the impression that the clamps came with a full order. If not, I'll be doing the same as well.

I bought mine second hand. I would be very surprised if AR didn't include the V-Bands as they usually come as a full kit (2 flanges and a clamp) when purchasing them for fabrication of the exhaust. You should be fine.

Abe supplies all the clamps you need for the systems he provides. If you bought a setup second hand, contact Abe to purchase the clamps.

He must not love you. Mine came with clamps, and I just ordered a new clamp and 3 new 3" v-band flanges. My **** hit the ground and bent the clamp and flanges, so I'm cutting it off the downpipe and redoing it. I also had him send me another flange and a pipe so I could make loud noises



Then I welded it, first time back purging and doing all that crap. Figured it was small enough to try it out.

Thanks, this will hopefully stop my hunt for the right size clamp.
