I bought a brand new set of dieselsite boots from another member and got them a few days ago. I havnt installed them yet but they are some really nice boots. Much thicker than the factory boots.

My stock boots are the same way. They are the original boots with 110,000 kms on them and they are oil soaked and starting to deteriorate.

I still want to do the ccv mod before I put the dieselsite boots on though. Just havnt decided which kit to use.

Yeah my stock boots have 80000 miles on them and the one on the turbo has cracks all over it and I think I've been leaking boost, my smoke has been a little more excessive than normal and it sometimes acts like it falls on its face when in overdrive and hammering on it so I'm gonna try these and hope for the best I got to change fuel filters too I've got about 10000 miles on them hopefully that helps too. If not I don't know what to do. I don't want to take it to my dealer because I don't trust there work. I'm a mechanic for cummins so ill probably just do it all myself. In the mean time ill drive my diesel benz and pimp it up ha ha!

I noticed a 3 psi improvement in boost pressure when I replaced mine. I just had the little cracks and apparently they were leaking just a bit of pressure. CONGRATS on the new goodies. Bob Riley (owner of Dieselsite) makes some good stuff.
