homemade intercooler

i have an 02 and the intercooler boots are worn out and i have been looking at all the sites and i was wondering if i can use something like radiator house instead of buying new boots i mean what would be the harm in that

Yeah you can. I know of a few trucks running them. Find a big rig shop in your area. I believe they are 3"

PS. Cut them a little longer than the stockers, that way if you are ever running more air you can double clamp them.

You should be able to get it from a hose/hydraulic shop. I'm running blue silicone coolant hose right now since I kept popping the stock spider-to-pipe boots, and it is supposed to be oil resistant.
