dieselsite intercooler boots and engine valley boots

all my boots are leaking, (looks like to me anyway). dieselsite says the stock boots are silicone and the oil and fuel ruin them. they also say that the 7.3s have a closed crankcase vent system that lets oil into the air intake? does this make sense?

just wondering has anyone bought these boots? does oil eat away at them? they are quite expensive, is it worth it. is there a cheaper alternative? thanks for any thoughts

Yes, it makes sense. Except I hope there's no fuel coming in contact with the boots, that would be bad news going on somewhere.

The crank case vent enters the intake system pre-turbo and carries quite a bit of oil vapors, these vapors slowly coat the intake tubing, boots and intercooler with oil.

I have no experiance with the DS boots, but have heard good things about them

Also, look into a CCV mod. This will remove that oil from the intake by either venting to atmosphere, or filtering and returning to intake clean

there still silicone boots and why would you buy a boot that you need to crank on the clamps so hard you crush the plenums then need his plenum inserts?? anything you put inside the flow of air will dirty up the air before it goes into the motor....i have dieselsite boots as well..there about 5 years old now...little more cash but well worth the $$,,, the pipes dont move a bit witch means no chaffing on wire loomes or powersteering bolts...mine have been sprayed with fuel,oil and power steering flued and there still holding strong with only 60 in/lb on a single clamp..

Is this the same idea like a catch can on a gas motor?
