DIY intake problem

I got it all installed a cpl weeks ago without a hitch and all was well, till about a week ago i popped my hood to check oil before a trip and noticed the filter had come out of the rubber joint that connects the filter to the 4" PVC.

it happened about a week after that too! i loosened up hose clamp and re fitted & tightened crap out of, but does anyone have any ideas on how to keep this from happening again? luckily i had been just doing city driving but i do go down some dirt roads and dont want a dusted turbo!

maybe some sandpaper to rough up the pvc before you clamp the hose down on it again. it would add to the mechanical adhesion. other than that here is a free bump so someone else can come along.

Sold: 01 Dodge cummins ECLB a few more mods to 353hp

Sold: 97 F250 SCLB, 5 speed 2wd. minor mods to 327hp

See a pattern? next I will have to find one of those 6 door jobbers...

You can spray some hairspray in the rubber boot part and then mount your filter. It helps with intercooler boots too. or, maybe some clear silicone caulk?
