blew IC pipe

hey fellas,

one of our guys was driving our 2012 6.7 f450 on the highway when it blew and lost all power obviously. he said the hood looked like it popped up lol. well they loosened up the boot and tightened it back down and its fine now. but whats the best way to prevent this from happening again? remove the boot, clean it good and hair spray it? or is there an issue causing this to happen. truck has about 30k miles fyi its the boot connecting the black plastic pipe going to intercooler

this truck is all stock and on their website says it throws CEL if you dont have a tuner on the truck.....

whats weird is it blew without romping on it and wasnt towing anything. unless it was close to blowing from the day before towing and it finally let loose. after tightening it back down they towed the bobcat back home without any problems. i told him to ease into the boost and not spike it up so we will see i guess.

Having the boots blow off on any brand of diesel pickup is not uncommon.
I drag race a 1996 Dodge CTD 12 valve with a fully built Scheid Diesel 5.9
Cummins. The truck has twin turbos, can make 80lbs of boost (wastegated)
and will turn 5,000 RPM. I went through ALOT of different diesel vendors trying to find silicone boots that could hold my high boost. I FINALLY found some that IMHO are the best on the market. They come from Piers Diesel or,
PDR Diesel out of Canada. Here is a link for you if you are interested:

Boot Kits! - PDR

Let me tell you, these boots are TOUGH!! They will also send you some very good clamps with them,...which IMHO,...is about as important as the silicone boot itself. On my drag truck, I actually have to "double clamp" the boots on BOTH sides! Piers Harry, founder and owner of PDR is a great guy and has been in the high performance diesel business for many years.

Hope this hepls you Sir!

yeah im aware of boots blowing off i just wanted to make sure there wasnt a problem since how it happened wasnt under load or anything. hopefully taking it back apart and cleaning it off good will keep it sealed and from blowing off. truck doesnt make a lot of boost lol. its a 450 cab and chassis and i think it only runs like 25psi of boost so you'd think i would have much of a problem where as my 6.4 i can peg the boost gauge easy and ive never blown a boot, KNOCK ON WOOD lol

Not unusual at ALL. We all carry spares in our service trucks(F-550) due to breaking so many of them. Its a POS design. You got lucky if it only blew the hose off and didnt break the crappy plastic connector going into the throttle valve assy.
Looked into swapping to the H&S setup, but it requires you to remove the throttle valve and must utilize aftermarket programming...
The hose isnt covered by the 100K mile warranty either.
