2005 6.0 boot at the turbo

Has anyone had a problem with the stock blue boot at the turbo blowing off? I have a 2005 6.0, arp head bolts, bullet proof erg cooler, super chip programmer on tow safe mode. About 1 1/2 years ago,towing my toy box up to Oregon it blew it off about 10 times in a 50 mile pull. Replaced boot and both clamps, cleaned turbo and intake tube. 1 1/2 years later hooked to the horse trailer(9600# empty) just cruising at 65 it blew off again(@17lbs boost looking at the edge cts). Anybody have this problem or is this just a service item?
Thanks for any help.

Buddy blew his off in his 06 towing their camper up a hill in VT and it was just stock then. Not a service item it just happens under heavy engine load I suppose

Clean boots with dawn dish soap. Clean all other parts with brake clean. Right before assembly spray the inside of your boots with hair spray and assemble.

if it is a blue boot you can RTV it but that requires the truck to sit for 24 hours

Those look nice Heavy GD

Myself I likely make more boost than the OP and have never spit a boot
I just replaced the stockers with new OEM boots and clamps at 100,000 miles as PM Items

ps if your doing new boots and have the plastic driver side tube order the steel tube for the o3 6.0 and it comes with new boots and 2 clamps IIRC all for about 140 then new boots for the pass side '

I don't see how the beans kit doesn't mention u need a steel CAC tube with their kit or doesn't seperate the years since the 04 up uses the plastic cac tube as 1 of the boots ??

I blew the turbo boot once and hair sprayed it back on... a few months later I noticed that I couldn't maintain boost while cruising (it would jump/surge 2-3psi) so I pulled all the boots and went to those with a home made clamp that holds the turbo pipe at the alternator... same idea as this:

BD Power - Product: Boot Lock kit

They didnt net any more boost, just steady numbers.

I changed the link to go straight to the BD site (the beans site is slow), anyway my kit came with a pipe that I didnt end up using.

The instructions list is as a separate part number.

So I suppose they will send the pipe with the kit when you order.

Thanks

still confused LOL

I had bought my steel pipe and then when it came with new boots it
opted me out of buying a boot kit since I had the New driver side boots

so I stuck with OEM if the BD site was more clear on what you get for that price I would definitely have tried that
