Your screw style hose clamps are fine, and will not yeild under boost pressure.

The thread mentioned by william930t has a picture where you can see a large black rubber elbow. At the mid point along this elbow there is a virtical standoff for a valve type device which relveives boost pressure between shifts (called a BOV or Blow Off Valve). I believe what Nathan is thinking is that the instantainious pressure spike seen as you transition from full boost then lift off the throttle (as in shifing gears) may force the intercooler off the inlet pipe allowing the O-ring to squeeze out. Do you have the same rubber elbow with the virtical standoff, with a black plastic device atached to it. The plastic device is missing in this picture:
