CAC tube clamp exploded after loss of power

I had just finished installing a new EGR cooler and oil cooler and was on my first test drive. I followed srmastertech's youtube video for this repair to the letter. A bit difficult to start at first but I got it going and everything seemed fine. I drove it a bit and it sounded weird when idling down hill but was fine otherwise. The weirdness was a choppy idle sound when there was normally not much sound at all when idling down hill but I wasn't worried about it yet. Then it started to lose power as in I could barely get to 30 up a gentle hill. I tried to limp it home but then there was a bang and the hood shook so I pulled over immediately. The clamp that holds the hot side air intake to the turbo also known as the CAC tube had exploded. Now it won't start. Any ideas as to what I did wrong?
