IC pipe popped off with H&S

Got on it hard today for a bit and when I let off....BOOM! IC pipe came off the lower part of the intercooler. I just jacked the clamp down nice and hard but is this going to be an issue? Would a bov solve the problem? It seemed to happen right when I let off. I have been reading here for a while on the 6.4 and haven't seen too many guys with this problem. It runs fine but I haven't run it hard since. Truck is 2010 with 500mi on hot tune.

Once you blow a boot off, you will likely do it again not to far down the road. I would take the boot off, clean the boot and pipe really good, and then put the boot back on using hairspray. Doubling clamping doesn't hurt either.

+1 on the hairspray, easy on and harder to get off.

I just installed my Mini Maxx and Hot Damn file 3 days and 300 miles ago. I double clamped and tightened those bad boys down at the time of install to prevent this problem.
But, the hair spray is a great idea...wish I had though of that!

does anyone sell boots that are a little longer and slide a little farther on the IC pipe?

You might check with a hydraulic hose shop because their hose can handle the oil and pressure.

I've been very pleased with my DieselSite boots. Others like the Riff Raff boots.

Bob Riley from DieselSite is awesome to deal with also. I blew the upper hot side boot off of my truck one night at the track and damaged it enough for it continue to blow off. I talked to him about it and he sent me a new boot at no charge. Excellent customer service in my book.
