Although I cannot locate the thread, we too experienced a clamp failure while climbing a long winding 8% hill and luckily we were just approaching the top. I had the transmission in 3rd gear and was right at 2100 RPM’s when all the sudden a loud pop, sounding like a balloon bursted from the motor and immediate loss of power. We pulled off the roadway and I began inspecting the probable cause. I noticed one of the Orange rubber boots had blown off the intercooler by the radiator and the Heavy Duty clamp broken. Luckily we were only a few miles from a friend who owns a repair shop and he delivered several large hose clamps so I could reach our destination and replace with another Heavy Duty clamp in a couple days. So, I will continue to research threads in an attempt to locate the author who I know posted photo’s too of his replacement parts. I will also carry a spare boot and clamps as this seems to be a “when” not “if” situation. I would suggest checking all your hose clamps as I found a few others needed snugging in and around the motor. Although an easy fix, this could leave you stranded when all it takes is a hose clamp replacement.
