driver side plastic CAC/ Intercooler tube on blowing off

I have the metal one to replace the plastic one with and Riff Raff boots to put on. Is the plastic tube my only issue or is it something more serious??

Thanks

The plastic tubes suck. Order one of the metal ones that came with the 03/04 trucks. BPD sells them also.

I already have it and plan to install it, just wondering if there could be another issue besides the plastic tube??

I seriously doubt it. The plastic tube gets weak and stretches do to heating and cooling, and then allows the oil residue in the CAC system to leak past the connection points. It then wont maintain the connection to the intake elbow under medium to high boost. Very common issue.

That depends where it is blowing off. If you are missing the steel retaining clip, it is likely it will blow off. Same goes for one that has been over-heated and stretched on a previous installation. Most change the plastic one out for the "cool" factor, but it is more susceptible to damage and breaking, especially on higher boost pressure system. I am still running my plastic one without problems.

Does your Banks intake elbow have the notch like the OEM elbow?

It's blowing off where it meets up top where it clamps to the aluminum tube. It still has the clamp on it. It hasn't ever blown off before this.

Yesterday it just blew again on the cold side lower boot. I've got the steel tube and Riff Raff boots installed. WTF!! Maybe I didn't get the clamp tight enough??

Use hair spray to help hold the boot on, plus it helps slide it on while the hairspray is still wet.

I put it back on and will give it hell towing a trailer (only about 2K) on Friday. If it blows again I'll try hairspray.
