Blew off the IC pipe yesterday. WOW

Yesterday I was transporting a car for a customer. I was on the "home stretch" going up the first of two 7% grades that are just before my exit from the freeway. I was messing around and pushed it a little to hard. Boost on the DD said 54.5, 55.6, 56.BOOOOOOOOMMMMMM!!!!!!!

I swear it looked like the whole hood surged up and inch when the pipe blew off! Luckily I had plenty of momentum to get over the hill, so I took the next exit, (at the base of the next grade), and stopped buy a friends house to borrow a 7/16 socket and rachet.

Trying to excelerate from a stop with that pipe blown off was a joke. It looked like you could get out and walk on the smoke that was coming from the tail pipe and people were moving four lanes of traffic to try and get away from it.

I know I have seen others post about blowing off this pipe, I was just curious how many have done it? I'm not really looking to upgrade boots or clamps due to this, the truck doesn't make nearly that boost going down the track and right now this pipe coming off seems like a good "fusible link" to me.

I've had the same deal happen to me with my 6.0 intercooler boots. I watched the boost climb to 30 PSI on my Insight while climbing a steep grade and then POP!!! It actually lifted my hood up! When I went to to pop the hood it had already been popped. It makes you think your engine blew up, scares the crap outa you, I know.

If you're talking to me, no. It was actually the boot connected to the turbo. The one coming off the CAC tube.

Mine came off at what would be considered the throttle body on a gasser. The IC pipe pushed out of the coupler. I'll mess with it more when ever Aaron can get me the new CAI pipe and blow off valve setup.
