I wouldnt use any sealers, Ive never had to on any of my turbo setups. What I would do is ditch that rubber hose joiner and replace it with a silicon hose and get some bolt up clamps.
basically, the only time pipes leak (other than the obvious loose clamps ect) is when the preasure build up makes the pipes move away from each other and put stress on the hose joiners. Looking at your short pipe run you wont have this problem at 7psi (shouldnt be a prob even on higher boost)

heres some links...

I like the solenoid in the brake booster vac line too. Nice back up for the check valve. :)

Yes, CBC's main branch is on South Rd, Regency Park. I also remember them having a large selection of hosing. They may be able to help you out with hoses and stronger clamps.

Darin.

P.S. No I don't work at CBC! Just bought lots of stuff there for work and they've always been helpful.

Lol, yeah that's what i thought it was at first.... actually a pressure switch which closes the circuit for the water injection at preset boost (3psi).

Bypass valve prevents manifold/booster from seeing positive pressure when braking, check valve provides emergency vac if needed (emergency standstills :wink: )

dont use any sealant! these hoses can be a barstard to remove on the best of days. chef has the idea, get some good silicone hose and clamps. also avalable from anywhere truck and earthmoving parts can be bought.
