NEED New Intercooler Boots HELP

Hey guys, I blew the upper boot off my truck two days ago. Looked on here and saw that dieselsite and riffraff seemed to be popular choices. Well after two days of trying to call riffraff, they have not answered yet and seem to b closed. Also dieselsite is sold out. I want to go ahead and replace all boots and my truck is currently down! any more suggestions on where to get some new boots?

You can try the dealer or Official Ford Parts Site | Buy Motorcraft & OEM Ford Parts Online | FordParts.com and have it shipped to your dealer/front door.

Well i have called riffraff diesel 6 times trying to get up with them to order my new intercooler boots. Cant get anyone to answer. It says they are currently closed. Can anyone let me know if this is normal or is there something up. I want to order from riffraff but want to talk to a actual person before dropping the money!

Innercooler boots

Hey guys, my 01 F350 has I high pitch squeel when on a load and I was told by several people to replace the boots. I think there are 6 boots but which ones should I buy. I was looking at riffraff on the RDP complete set. Has anyone else bought those ones and if so, did they come with new clamps also? I called ford dealer and thy sell them all seperatly and it was over $300. I thought that was a little pricey. Riffraff wants me to select sizes for each boot, but I am not sure on the size. any thoughts???

thanks for your thoughts.
Frank

pretty sure you need the 3" boots. Only measurement you need to do is the IC tube. Depending on year of truck, they came with either, 3"..(all aluminum IC) or 3.25"..(aluminum IC with plastic caps). Your plenums are 3", the IC tubes at spider assy is 3". No, the boots DO NOT come with clamps. Replace where you see worm clamps. Also, while ur at it, order the PLENUM INSERTS. You can then, crank the shiat down on them at plenums.

that high picjed squell, maybe something to dig into farther. Removethe intake air assy and look at compressor wheel . See if any edges ar gone/chipped, along with grabbing it, and see if any movement..side/side, up/down. If so, need to rebuild it, ASAP
