    We've all been there. You're tucked under your car, with your arm slithered up through the nether regions of your engine finger tightening that last critical bolt.

We here at Mishimoto wanted to put our mark on the clamp world, which led us to create our Quick Release Clamp Assembly.

    Why would you need this new fangled clamp? Why would you weld in a clamping system rather than source some couplers and standard clamps? I'm glad you asked! For starters, the all-aluminum construction lends itself to a significantly more secure connection, making these clamps perfect for high-horsepower vehicles pushing tons of boost through the system. Utilizing this clamp will allow for a solid metal intercooler pipe system while still allowing for easy removal of the intercooler as needed. Through our testing, we found that these clamps are capable of withstanding up to 400°F and can easily
