Cold side piping fabrication!

I am throwing on a Treadstone 62MM kit but need to fab up my own cold side. I had a member sent me a parts list of piping that he used but I was wondering if anyone knew a good source for t-bolts and silicone. Doesn't have to be top of the line stuff, just good enough to hold 15psi!

Also, any pictures of other's cold sides (DIY) would be awesome!

I just ordered all my new couplers, t-clamps, and o2 sensor bungs from Race Parts Solutions. Those two guys rock so no need to worry. I would call them before ordering just to ensure you are getting what you want. Thats what I did.

Highly recommended from me and many, many, many other members of this forum and the turbo forum.

T-bolts and standard silicone sizes you can get of ebay the cheapest. Some of the vendors will even mismacth sizes for you. So if you want 2-3" and maybe 2-3.5" they will work with it.

When it comes to reducers or eblows raceparts solutions is a good source, but they are alittle exspensive on the t-bolts.

As far as the piping I dont know if you are fabing your own or what but you can get this off ebay from treadstone or intercooleronly, or whom ever. They have all different size and kits. Just get a universal kit and mismatch it to fit.

You can get a whole universal kit that will include the hoses, t-bolts and piping for 150 bucks. thats all I did, and all I had to come up with was a hose to go from 3" piping to 3-3/4 for the throttlebody and I had to fab up a section to hold the blowoff valve. but that was it. When all said and done I spent about $200, and had left over piping that I didnt use.
