Help hole in stock intake/boost tube...

I have a hole in my tube right where it comes out of the intercooler...sounds like air compressor under my hood. Should I just replace the stock or go with the Banks High Ram set up or is there an after market pipe/tube I can buy that is better than the stock?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

It really depends on how much money you want to spend. Most guys say the high ram intake really isn't worth it, and the money would be better spent elsewhere. BD offers higher quality boots, but I believe they are only in kits and are around $200+. I think your best best would be to just replace the stock boot through a ford parts place. I think that's what I'd do.

This right here is what you want. The silicon hoses used in the oem setup are not compatible with oil and deteriorate over time. This is a rubber replacement that won't have that problem

Oh yeah, the replacement elbows like the Banks and CFM result in 0 performance gain. Not recommended unless you are pushing super high boost levels.

Definetely go with the dieselsite boots! They are the bomb digity, they are a tad pricey but they won't deteriorate and won't seep oil through them leaving a mess in your engine compartment/block valley. I would suggest getting the steel sealing ring that dieselsite sells as well they don't cost much extra and will prevent your boots from blowing off under high bosst psi!

Thanks,
Adam

Thanks guys...my problem is on the drivers side, the tube coming out of the bottom of the intercooler, under the air filter and bends up to the top of the manifold/air intake where the elbow is. I will probably just end up getting the stock one unless anyone has a suggestion. Dieselsite only does the passenger side. Thanks again for the tips!!

Are we talking about a hole in the silicon coupler or a hole in the plastic tube?

The hole is in the plastic tube right where the accordian section is before it makes the bend.
