Question Where can I get quality clamps?

One of my clamps busted coming of the turbo . I checked the cartech website but didn't see anything. I just put a regular hose clamp for temp fix. I know it's not good for the sillicon hose but I didn't tighten too tight. I tried searching and found some t-bolts at summit but just wanted to ask other's. Thanks. -Jeff

Is there a certain type you should use? My kit just has normal clamps I thought? I would assume its ok as long as they aren't the type that have small square holes in them all the way around?
I picked up a couple clamps when I had to do a few things after the kit was installed...should I change them to the type that is solid the whole way around?

If you don't want to wait for mail order on the clamps you can probably get some t-bolt clamps at a local diesel shop.

Cat, yes that Cat, uses some nice clamps on their tractors that you could buy if there is a dealer near you. I have them on both ends of my discharge tube and they are much better looking than you will find at a hardware store. Very nice.
