Because of the CCV there is always oil in the IC tubes. Once this oil gets on the outside of the tube, between the boots & metal, it's hard to keep 'em on...

So, take some thinner, either, brakeclean, something that dries quickly and leaves no residue and do a really good job of removing any traces of oil from where they come together.

If dry & clean they shouldn't blow off again. The old timers will tell you to spray AquaNet on them to "glue" 'em down, again, shouldn't be necessary, but you could do that too

Also consider the CCV Mod to stop all that oil from getting in there in the first place....
