S&b intake boots

I have a 08 f250 that I bought used with 136000 on the clock. It already had the s&b Cai installed. This weekend I was doing the CCV mod and noticed that both of the rubber "boots" on the intake are crumbling and coming apart. Is this something any of you guys have noticed on yours? I was thinking that the oil mist from the CCV may have contributed to the deterioration of the rubber. I emailed s&b to see if they would replace them under their "million mile warranty" but haven't heard back yet. Does anyone know where I could order these parts? They do not list replacement parts on their site. It does not appear that they are to the point of letting any air through unfiltered but I want to replace them ASAP

Mine still looks good. If it's a million mile warranty they should replace yours. Let us know how that goes.

Smile Awesome service

Just wanted to let you guys know that the people at s&b are taking care of me. I sent them an email in witch they quickly answered and then I sent them another email with pics of my intake and the boots that were "corroding " they got in touch with me by phone and my new intake boots are on the way free of charge. Excellent customer service and friendly people. I also love that they are here in the states and the intakes are manufactured here and they stand behind their product. Highly recommend

Agreed! Great service! I got my intake in the other day and upon inspection I was missing a few clamps and also the MAF sensor gasket and new screws. Clamps were no big deal I had some layin around the shop but one email and I had a reply asking for the kit # so they could send that part right away. Glad they took care of ya Denny!

I had the same thing happen on my 5.9, however, it was AFE. They were cool too and replaced them. Do an oil sample next oil change and see if anything made its way in through the intake. I always wondered where that stuff was going.
