Custom Single Turbo setup

Finally getting a start on my single turbo kit for the 1991 notchback I bought last year. Car is my DD in the summer, 1991 5.0 auto with 177k bone stock. Currently installing a custom single kit, tko 600 , classic FAST system and a few suspension mods and rearend work. For the turbo kit I'm using a pony down hotside, and my own custom 3" coldside piping. I have the entire coldside tacked together but I have a small decision to make about joining the pipe between the fender and the TB. I have two options:

A) Use a v-band to join the pipe in the fender and the TB pipe, would look clean and make it easy to take pipe off to change spark plugs. Problem is that Im not sure that the v-bands can be used on the pressure side, are they airtight like a silicone sleeve?

B) Install a silicon sleeve as you see in the pictures below, have one t-bolt in the fender and one in the engine bay. I am leaning towards this method, but want to see what you guys think.

I will come back and update this thread as things progress.

I'd go with the silicone sleeve. I wouldn't trust a v-band assembly to hold boost as much as I would a silicone sleeve.

Wow good thing I was sitting down! Those clamps are $208 each, I'll just stick to the silicone and t-bolts. I will say they are slick looking!

Nothing wrong with V-bands on cold side.

Yes they will seal. Much better than silicone couplers.
Check out cold side pipes on some Pro-stock turbo cars sometimes.........

Couplers give the system somewhere to flex, so you do need some
but a V-band isnt going to "blow off" like a coupler.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep sitting down and voting on whats for lunch.

I got V-bands from these guys. They are very nice. Had a tounge and groove receiver type setup. 1 side has a groove, the other has a lip that sits in the groove for perfect alighnment. This was @ 1.5 years ago. But, you can call and ask them if they still have that type. I used it on my hot and cold side. No issues what so ever.
