Hot side pipe on intercooler

I am planning on painting my intercooler tube the one by the alternator (the hot side pipe i am assuming?) my other one is some sort of black plastic so i am going to leave that one alone...anyway question is i had some time today so i popped hood and loosened the clamps all the way but didnt take them off, seemed like that pipe was in there realllly good i gave her a good tug but coudnt budge the silicone boots, is there any kind of trick to getting these pipes off? Do you completely remove the clamps then try working it off or?????? Never fooled with em' before so any help is appreciated....

FWI...I am painting it red should look niceeeee...

There is a groove in the pipe that fits into a silicone bead in the coupling, so the clamp doesnt need to come completely off, but has to be super loose, and not stuck to the silicone, I am not sure about the lower part and watch it yanking on that one, since the ends of the IC are plastic and you dont want to crack it.

it should pop right off. mine does. dont take the clamps all the way off just loosen the clamps. be careful when you tighten them back up cause you can crimp the intercooler piping. i always take it off at the turbo and intercooler but you want to paint it so just be careful.

Mine came off fairly simple. Only one I had trouble getting on and off was at the turbo. I powdercoated mine..

I know diff shops are diff prices but how much was that to powder coat? If you dont mind. Looks really good.

They do take a bit of work sometimes to get them off.

BIGG PIGG's looks waaaayyy different than mine.

But I am also planning on painting mine. I plan on sanding, engine primer, engine paint, then engine clear.
