Intercooler Boot

I have an 04 6.0 with 60k.Just had all new heads, oem gaskets, arp studs, BPD oil and egr cooler.Im running SCT livewire eco tune from Invovation diesel.Truck runs solid.But i have one issue i bought some intercooler boots form Riffraff Diesel and i keep blowing off the boot near the turbo while towing my 5th wheel.If im not towing it stays on.Now the oem one have a lip inside the boot to help keep them on the pipe.Any idea's, i went out and bought new oem one from ford for 160 plus clamps.Thanks

Do you still have your ccv hooked up?

You could re-route that, and eliminate the oil from being inside your inter-cooler piping.

Then make sure you clean the boot really good, and tighten back down.

On the early 03's we used to use a hairspray trick. Clean the tube and boot innersurface thouroughly and spray with hairspray or spray starch inside the boot, let get tacky and then install and clamp. About a 80% success rate.

I can't remember where I got it, but I bought a longer aftermarket boot for mine (it wasn't cheap, but very heavy duty). It wasn't designed for my Banks intercooler tube, but what I found was that I needed extra length (not sure if you might just need extra length or not to give the clamps more boot to bite into). I had to modify it a bit so it would fit (due to my Banks tube) but after getting tired of replacing the stock boot every few days, this was my solution. Never been blown again. Hope that helps!
