Boost leak

Today I did the DIY 6637 intake and said hell while im here ill do a foil delete. Started cleaning the adheasive off and the pipe(dont know what its actually called) has a dent and crack in it.

Could i use JB weld or aluminium tape as a quick fix untill I can get new one?

Is there any benefit on having aftermarket compaired to stock?

There is No psi on that pipe, just slight vacume as its pre trubo. Id clean it and JB weld it smooth and paint it. The shape looks like a cone theres no way it could ever be sucked into the trubo.
Just my
goodluck

That tube is NOT pre-turbo. its the hot-side cac tube after turbo. If his truck builds 20psi, that spot will see 20psi.

The hole was made from the banjo fitting on the power steering unit / resivoir. Like 305 said, get it welded then put some type of foam padding glued in that area so this problem dont happen again.

Good idea. No need for a new one. Just a tack weld will probably do.

Off topic, I know, but can anyone tell me why you would want to do the foil delete?
