CAC BOOTS

One of my CAC boots cracked, so I have been searching for a new set and found these. Intercooler Pipe Fabrication - Silicone Intake Systems Auto Parts . Has any body tried these or should I go another route.

I don't think silicone is oil compatible. So, might be a temporary fix?

Check out these guys. Their boots are the real deal, I had their boots on my 7.3 and I have theirs on my 6.0 also. They are a lot thicker and more heavy duty than the stockers, AND they are a supporting vendor here. http://www.dieselsite.com/

That's about as cheap as you'll find.

I got my boots from there too.

The ford dealer wants $80.00 a piece, and I was super shocked at there price. But $130.00 for the one boot, thats a lot of cash for a piece of rubber. The site I posted wants $16.00 bucks a piece, I got 70k off the oem boots so if I have to buy new boots every 70k at $32.00 a pop I am still way ahead.

What he said... They are way better than the stockers. Also, they're oil compatible.

I'm willin to bet you won't get 70K outa those 16 dollar boots. Maybe you can get away with 'em. But I can't afford to be sittin on the side of the road tryin to get everything clean enough to get these boots back on.

The boot that is $131 is the outlet boot for the turbo. The only intercooler boot is $78.

Yes, the new boots are blue on the outside and orange on the inside. I have one on my truck by the turbo inlet and its much better.
