Throttle Body cooler pipe blowin off

could try a few tack welds on it so when you clamp down the hose has something to hold onto.

wots tack welds?
a tack weld is like, ya get a stick welder or mig and just tap the metal with it, and ill elave a small amount of weld on the surface, or over the joint, do this over the joint so the weld is melted over the 2 surfaces.
