Oil Spraying from the turbo tubes

Ok yall I got oil covering my tubes that come off the turbo. I need those two little rubber hoses that connect the tubes from the intercooler to the turbo. Where can I get these and are they expensive.

Yes Jon that is where it is leaking from. ever since I put the boost gauge in and I had to take the one off that goes from the turbo to the intercooler it has been getting worse. The oil is only right there no where else. I have been having a problem keeping this thing sealed up. So I need a new rubber hose. Or is there any tricks as to sealing this one.

I read that if you pull it off clean it up good and use hairspray let it set up for a bit and then put it back together! Worth a shot cheaper then buying a new on

Yeah I read about that mod, not really into doing that yet. I am gonna just replace them, i found out jegs has the hole kit for 50 bucks. I think I am going to undue it clean it up, and try to put it back together and get a seal. But if that don't work then I am going to see about getting just the one boot that i need and not a whole kit.

If the boot is not damaged, clean it up with disk brake cleaner, You can lightly rough it up with scotchbrite pads if you feel adventurous, and spray the hair spray on, let it sit till tacky and put it back together, if there's room for double clamps even better. The ccv mod removes the oil from getting in the cac tubes, and runs it to the back or wherever you decide to run it to.

If you pull the coupler off and do the ccv mod and do the hairspray on the coupler you shouldnt have anymore problems, we run 3ply couplers and t-bolts on all of our custom kits we do for cars that run 30+psi with no hairspray and have no problems. But that oil getting in there is what makes them come off and leak
