Plastic intake tube...wtf

So I've been knee deep in 6.0s for a while now and it was always on an 04 with the metal intake tube and boots. I never really work on mine since I haven't had any issues but I removed the intake elbow to install my gauges and that &$@#€|€{£\+] plastic tube on the 05-07s is a piece of crap. Removing it was difficult but reinstalling felt impossible. I asked scparrish to give it a shot because maybe I was being retarded. Well when we are both pushing on the two opposite ends and nothing happens that's a bad design.


For future reference I tried wd40, etc and nothing. The small plastic ring on the tubing where it kinda clicks in, I shaved about 1/3 of the circle down just barely with a razor blade and it popped on.


Moral of the story...piece of crap go buy the metal tube with boots

The ONLY way i made it work is putting half of it in and THEN pushing the other end in...
Kinda like a crow bar action....pushing it straight on will not work...

Yea we tried that method, also doin that while twisting and colorful words came out of nowhere all over the place. It's just a stupid design and you can feel the tubing flexing and I was hoping it didn't crack in the process. So now I'm on the hunt for one of those locally

I had the same problem. Grabbed the wife's hair dryer and heated the tube up for a couple of minutes. Went on easy after that.

swapping plastic CAC tube for metal CAC tube
Cold side $105.49 + shipping from Tousley Ford.
Part No. 6C3Z-6C640-AA, that includes the duct, both boots and all 4 clamps
"Ford has upgraded the boots, but not sure exactly how much better these are from the originals. You'd be looking at $39.56 and $44.98, and have plenty in stock (6C3Z-6A640-B for the straight one, 6C3Z-6C640-A for the angled one off of the turbo) It seems like the hot one off of the turbo is the first to go. These will not come with clamps, but most are able to reuse the old ones."
or you can also get them here.

The way to know if you have upgraded boots is by looking at the inside. The upgraded blue boots are orange inside and they stick much better without the use of a tacky adhesive.

On my truck the angled boot was orange inside from the factory but the lower straight boot was still blue. both new ones are orange inside now. That statement is correct about the top one being the first to go, it gets the majority of the oil and takes most of the flex from engine movement.
