Use what ya got!

I'm sure some of you have heard this sound when driving hard or towing. All of the sudden it sounds like you disconnected your compressor to drain the line. I had a nice tear in my pass side cac boot. I wasn't too far from home but the truck wasn't making much power so I found some tyvek tape in the truck, wrapped her up the best I could and I was able to maintain enough boost to go the speed limit and get home. Theres a Ford dealer close by so I got a new boot in the morning. Thought I'd post the funny picture though.

I had my old driver side incooler pipe crack a few times. One time towing far from home and I wasn't moving. We scrounged up what we could and ended up patching the pipe with roofing muck, half a plastic coffee can, some pipe clamps and big zip ties. It actually held long enough that I forgot about it didn't fix it for a few weeks!

Nice roadside repair. Think we've all been there at least once. That Tyvek tape is tough chit too.
