Exclamation Intercooler Tube Help

Hey, I need advice with a problem that I am having. When I boost the truck up over say 20psi my cold air intake side intercooler tube blows right out of the boot. What seems to be the problem? Is it the boot, the clamps, etc? Also what is the torque on those clamps that go around the boot? I am looking into getting a new boot and clamps what company makes good ones?

I just installed Riffraff Diesel boots, they are nice. Dieselsite makes some too I believe. I can't see that your clamps are at fault. You should look into the CCV mod if you haven't done so already.

Replace the boots, I have Turbonetics boots on my truck. They are a lot better then stock plus I can buy them locally.

Also when you go to install the boots spray the tubes down with brake cleaner and then wipe them dry. The oil residue will cause the boots to slip off too.

You can try to clean the stock boot with brake cleaner and reinstall it. When you tighten the clamp down make sure it is square with the tube.

Turbonetics better then diesel site? Clamps or no clamps?

Thanks for the quick response.

What is the torque of these clamps, and also what is the part number from turbonetics or the web address? Also what would the part number be for the diesel site boots? Reason is because they are longer and I am worried of them being longer than needed. I only need that one boot though will I need to buy a whole kit or can I just buy the boot?

Clean the boots really well with carb cleaner (inside and out, as well as the clamps so they don't slide around on the boots), let it dry. Clean the IC tubes, and all connections the same way. Then, take some aerosol hair spray, spray all the connections, and put it back together. Let it dry, and they won't pop off again.

Or, get the banks tubes-they are rolled on the edges to prevent blowing off.

CARB CLEANER! NOT BRAKE CLEANER! Carb cleaner dries without residue, and evaporates faster.

Okay I will see what I can do. I did clean it out when it happened the second time and it still blew off. What is the torque?

I run diesel site boots on mine that a long with a good cleaning as others have suggested should keep them on, also if you order the dieselsite boots I'm pretty sure they come with new clamps as well
