turbo pipe with foil on it keeps blowing off!!!!

That pipe that goes from intercooler to the turbo keeps blowing off!! Driving me insane. I had to take it off along with the airbox and battery to fix the hydro hose from the hydro boost to power steering, and now it keeps piping off! Now it blew off next to the intercooler so I'ma have to take all that stuff out to get it back on. Any advice on making it stay on?? Is it bad that it pops off?

Clean the ends of the pipe real well along with the boots. Spray the pipe ends with hairspray and reinstall.

Did you clean off all the oil from the CCV?

I wiped it off and put it back on tonight. If it blows off again I'ma get rubber glue or somthing. Maybe weld dam thing lol. Hopefully I'll make it to work. Amy ideas on how to keep the psi down driving to work ?

You just need to clean it properly and tighten the clamps enough.

maybe the clamps are stripped? if i was you, i'd probably get some new clamps.

if you use glue on them or you'll be wishing you hand't done that later on.

i'm not sure. it should probably be a spring loaded clamp specifically for intercooler piping.

maybe switch the clamps between the two sides of the motor to see if that's actually the problem.

I had to hold the clamp with channel locks and turn the ratchet so the whole thing wouldn't turn. Could it come loose like that

Local stores might have an equivalent but I have found the quality varies wildly. I got replacement clamps from Riffraff last year. But then you'll have to wait for shipping. Stainless Steel T-Bolt Boot Clamps - Riffraff Diesel Performance
