Dieselsite Boots

I installed them today, and used the tool Dave made to test for boost leaks. Took me all of about 2 hours, and I cleaned the tubes up.

I'm getting about 1-2 more PSI unloaded @ WOT and about 2-3 more PSI uphill (simulated loaded) @ WOT. So I'm guessing they helped. EGTS after 6 WOT runs to 100 mph yielded a max EGT of 1300*.

Ok here is my question - I used the boost tester, I regulated my air down to 25psi and plugged it in.

Air is escaping from the following places.
- CCV tube since I need to retighten it down, but I'm doing the reroute soon enough so I don't care.
- The GREEN tube that runs into the intake tube on the new TN BB unit. I noticed it fit loosely when I installed it, but it never comes out or anything w/o substantial pull.
- My homemade boost fooler needs more teflon tape or something, it's leaking at one of the ends. I'm actually going to just take that tube off and get a whole new line from Home Depot and delete the boost fooler since my DP Tuner apparently overrides it anyway (I had the boost fooler off) and still no code.

Ok, so no leaky boots but that's where it's leaking from.

The first two are PRE Turbo and the other is on the Mapline... I don't think EITHER would be considered "boost leaks" since boost foolers will open at the desired PSI and allow air to escape.

Anybody think otherwise?!

I would not consider any of them a real boost leak. I would do what you can to stop your boost fooler from leaking. Sound good.

The boots are the next thing I have to put on my truck. I am getting concerned with the high boost(51psi) and the stock intercooler boots I am using, will stop liking each other much longer.

Not only are they thicker, but they also STICK to the freaking TUBES!!!

They don't slide around like the stockers (even when you clean them and the pipes).

In fact - I put the first one on for fitment and went to take it off and it was difficult!!!

For 100 bucks, they're not that bad... 51psi would probably warrant that as well LOL.

I'm pushing just a hair under 30 psi now.... I'll be calling Jody tomorrow to send me another file opening up the fuel top end now...
