I blew off that hose many times, and it turned out that the pcv was shot, oil was leaking down and getting in there asn d so the clamp wouldn't hold tight

What if that separate piece were to be welded on? No more clamp... Thoughts?

I've actually had the ring and offset coupler seal welded to the right of the clamp because I can take those off the car. In order to fully weld it to the turbo itd have to come out of the car which I'm not trying to do right now....I tried some gasket material along with the welded pieces however that didn't completely seal it.

My HPA K04 kit actually didn't come with the vband so I was pissed. Luckily I had a spare oem k04 to get that off to put it on. I also bought better clamps for the silicon hose so that that it holds better.

His is leaking from the v-band, not the silicone. Mine is currently off the car so I may have it welded. Which direction should it be pointed before I do this? It has a slight angle to it

Mine needs to be pointed up towards the sky in order to get my silicone hose on the easiest.

More so their quality control is junk. The whole outlet assembly design itself is odd to.

HPA K04 users need some input

I canít take credit for the welds, but if you need yours welded in CT, I know where to send you.

Plenty of others run these turbos with minimal issues. Unfortunately, it seems like they added complexity where it wasnít needed & used some sub-standard parts surrounding the turbo itself (WG, DV). Probably all just knock-off parts. Iím planning to swap in my OEM stuff when it goes in (DV & N75, plus the aforementioned Forge WG).

Is it sealed around the seem where the ring meets the turbo flange around the outside? I don't see weld there
