Before you put it back on clean the oil off the boot and the intercooler and apply some hairspray to it. Let the hairspray get a little tacky and tighten the clamp real well.

I had the same problem! Mine would blow at about 31 PSI. I did the same and stopped and bought a new one, only to have it blow again and again.
I even double clamped it at one point. NADP pointed me to Diesel Site, and they have a full boot kit, in it is a MUCH better, thicker, stronger boot. I haven't had an issue since and have hit 40+ psi pulling my 40' toy hauler at times with no issues at all!
