Turbo piping blown?

I was on the gas passing a truck when I heard a loud POP that sounded like the air brakes from the truck, except magnified x10. It took me a second but I also realized I lost almost all boost except when I was stepping on the gas where it should have been 20psi, I was getting about 2-3 and could hear a loud hissing noise.

So I stop and inspect it, and it sounded like a boost leak right underneath of the intake box.

Any idea what I could have blown a hole in/knocked loose?

PS I have a 6.0 running a XStreet tune

Check the rubber boot connecting the charge air cooler pipe to the turbo. This is a common problem. It happen to me when ascending hills while dragging my 36' fifth wheel. BTW, it's on the passenger side.

Nope, I have seen the plastic cold side tube from the charge air cooler to the intake manifold blow apart. you need to remove the air filter and take a close look.

I've had my hose blow off up by the turbo. If it is coming from under the airbox then it could be the plastic tube blown or it could be the end of the intercooler blown off.

Seen the tanks blow apart, also seen the tubes blow apart or break if they are the plastic ones. Either way, you might also want to evaluate turbo operation to make sure it's not over-boosting.

I had the plastic tube coming from the cooler and it blew a hole in the side of the flexy part.
Dealership wanted 180 for a new one, but I got lucky and found a guy partin out a wrecked 350 on CL so I gave him 80 for his metal tube!

Thanks for the help!
