Exclamation DKMC needs Help

Per PM he sent me...

turbo hose trouble


I have a 2003 f-350 s.d. and I keep blowing off the turbo hose between the turbo and the intercooler. Has anyone experienced this problem? It is especially bad when I am pulling my trailer. When I get into the mountains and it is under a great strain it blows off. I have replaced both hoses as this one was torn. The problem still exists. Does anyone have any suggestions or solutions.

6.0 or 7.3?

it is fairly common - here is a link to better boots for the 7.3

These guys sell a 3 x 3 x 8 heavy boot that will work for either the 6.0 or the 7.3. The 8" length is long enough so it sits far up on the exchange pipes, you can actually double clam them if you need to I have them on my truck and they work like a champ.
