EGR Delete HELP!!!!

Just did the EGR delete with intake elbow & cold air pipe, all from dirty diesel. Now I keep blowing the hot side of the intercooler pipe, at the boots, between 20 & 30 lbs of boost. Before EGR delete, no problem with 40 lbs of boost. I have had the Mini Max installed for the last 5k miles with no problems, set on the wild setting. I have tried mild setting as well & still blow off a boot. I thought I had read that a waste gate was not needed until the 600+ hp range. I only tow with this truck, no racing, and the boots are blowing off without towing anything. I need to tow with the truck on Tues. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. TIA!

I have heard people spraying hairspray on the inside of the boots to make them stay. Otherwise Dieselsite makes intercooler boots that for sure wont blow off. Hope this helps.

Also make sure ALL the oil is off the pipe and boot. Then try the hair spray and make sure the boot is all the way on and if there is a ridge in the pipe have the clamp passed it and tighten down. Also try to make sure the pipe boot and intercooler are stright in line with each other.

Thanks for the replys. I have the Dieselsite boots, that is what was blowing off. I went to Dieselsite to see if they had any install help & they did. I bought these several months ago & forgot what I had read about them. I took everything back apart & cleaned everything real well. Put everything back together with hairspray & double clamped the pipe side. Problem solved. Thanks for the ideas!

Everything bolted right up...no problems. Getting everything off to be able to do that is another story. I'd guess it took me 6 to 7 hrs (by myself) to get the EGR coolers off & another 2 hrs. to get everything put back together. I left all the mounting brackets on (minus the clamps) in case I need to put the coolers back on someday. The intake elbow was easy install, just make sure you get a new rubber O ring from Ford & (2) 6mm X 25mm bolts. You'll be able to use 2 of the bolts from the stock elbow, the other 2 are too long. Hope this helps. Tomorrow I'll get to try everything out, with about a 600 mile trip, towing a 5k trailer.
