CAC tube support?

Well it has been a long time, but yesterday the lower boot on my CAC tube blew off! i have searched and found one company that sells a tube brace, anybody using a tube brace? After the lower boot blew off, it has a small 1/2 thickness tear on the inside, so i will replace the boot and clamps, and keep the old boot and clamps in the toolbox as a spare.

They blow off from
1. oil saturation and deterioration of the boot
2. Overboost from sticking turbo or biased sensor or too aggressive tuning

I would advise to fix the source.

If you didn't want to do the ccv mod, then the upgraded boots from Ford (or better yet the RiffRaff boots) are oil resistant.

I just ordered both boots from tousleyford to replace mine since they are oil saturated and have a small crack. Would these be the upgraded ford boots you're talking about?

i did the ccv mod ( vent to atmosphere,removed intercooler, cleaned intercooler and tubes), turbo was only boosting 20psi at the time the boot blew off, truck is stock.
i think supporting the CAC tube will help.

To be honest if the boots are installed correctly and are serviced when needed there should be no concern for them coming off. a bracket isn't going to keep a boot from coming off, it's just going to keep the pipe from moving.

Couldn't agree more. I push 30 psi or a little higher every day and don't pop boots off with the stock boots. Do I want to upgrade...Yes!!! Seems like I'm never done upgrading...
