<p>Volvo is known for its low pressure turbo systems. AMS is known for its stupid high pressure systems.</p>

Those are 1.40 or so, stainless, and have a hellatiousally thick stainless worm cage unlike the home depot pot metal bullshit.

I've used and reused them several times now, no leaks.

I don't think you can find better quality t-bolts for less money than this.

A small collection of LeMans, WRC, F1, and group B engine bays full of worm drive clamps.

I love spring clamps . . . except for when they slip off the pliers and ping my fingers.
