turbo boots

I cannot get this boot to stay on to save my life! I have de-greased it and,torqued it but the boot still comes off. Its the one that goes down to the intercooler.. and suggestions on what to do? i'm ready to take it to the stealership.

Might just have to much oil in it and you need a new boot to make it seal again

Once they blow off a few times it seems to be an impossible task to get them to stay on. at this point it's best just to put a new one on

another tip is to use some some spray adhesive. typically if I'm dealing with an old boot that is saturated and the customer doesn't want to buy new ones I'll use a product like trim stick to effectively glue the boot to it's connection. I makes it a pain to get them back off, but they'll stay on for the time being.

Heavy Duty Hose and Clamp Kit

These are what I install in my shop, better material, better clamps... no more blowing off!

I used the riff raff boots and they are straight without the wire where the diameter changes, I do not need to put anything over the area in the middle wright.

Shadyford im amusing your talking about the bottom passenger side. Where it changes diameter you do not put anything there just the clamps on each end of course.
