CAC Bracket

I decided after reading about peoples' CAC tube blowing off due to clamp failure I'd fab something up to avoid that hassle.

Here's my first attempt at something that looks like it ought to be under the hood.

I don't think there will be any vibration issues since the flexible hoses provide mechanical isolation anyway. It it appears to be a problem, I may go back to the drawing board.

My boots never blew off they blew out so that would not help me. Looks good though.

I have pushed 30lbs of boost and never had a problem. That being said I use 2+2 to clean the inside of the boots and the other surface before installing. I learned this on my XX Mondo supercharged mustang that was pushing 40lbs boost.

Looks good. Good idea.

I did the CCV mod about 5,000 miles ago. My boots are just now not getting oily. There must have been a lot still in the inercooler.

I was mostly trying to keep the pipe from denting the hood if/when the boot blew. I'd read enough stories of guys having that happen that I thought I'd take a little preventative medicine.

Looks store bought, which is what I always strive for when I fab something up. Good job. How about mass production and marketing in all of your "spare" time? Deek's Hood Saver...you got a name now, the rest is up to you.
