Banks technicooler tubes pop off

I have a 2005 f350 that has the banks technicooler and piping about 2-3 times per month the boot either pops off at the turbo or at the bottom of the inter cooler and I loose all boost I have the on as tight as I can possible get them and it still happens and then it's a 30 min under the hood adventure on the side of the road any suggestions to get this to stop.

I remember the angle at the turbo was pretty severe and didn't line up properly ( nice job Banks)

anyway if it were mine I would clean the crud out of it hit the tube with some scotch brite at the seating area and reassemble with the hairspray trick and maybe new boots and clamps

I bought the kit when they first came out with it and had the boot at the turbo blow up in New Jersey going down to Florida from mass and back fun ride that was called them and they sent me a new design for free with a new pipe seeing how it only had 5000 miles on it but the problem still happens if I can't get it to stop does anyone else make a kit like it that actually works.

I have a BANKS setup on mine with 0 issues. I always wipe down the inside of the connectors with carb or brake cleaner and also the outside of the parts. Then I torque the clamps to the correct setting.

oil doesn't help but still shouldn't be this big of an issue

the brake clean will help and not sure what tube you have but if it is polished or shiny powdercoat I would roughen up the surface a little

100 or less grit sandpaper, and hairspray will keep them on. That's what I have on the hot side ic inlet, it sees 65 psi and hasn't popped off yet. The rest are vband connections.
