Confederate Diesel turbo problem

I just installed a turbo kit from this company and for some reason when under a lot of boost the piping blows off of the boot. What is a simple fix to this? One of my buddies is telling me to get a bov and it will prevent this but i do not think that will help this at all. Anything will help thanks

Have you tried cleaning the pipe and spraying hairspray on it when you slide it back in the boot? That pretty blue color looks slick as greased hog poo.

Your first problem was going to Confederate Diesel, they do shotty work. the issue is there is no flare/bead roll at the end to keep it from blowing off. Typical poor quality work is what they are known for...

I am out of town until Monday so I'll have to try that when I get back. From my own knowledge I think sanding it a little to rough it up and using the hairspray might work

Worth a shot. You asked for cheap and roughing the surface and a thin coat of hairspray is pretty cheap haha.

The flare would help greatly.

You may be able to get a muffler shop to put the hurt on it a little to get a small flare and not mess things up. You didn't say what material this was made of, but I would guess at aluminum. You may also try to get longer boots or tubes. This will lessen the amount that things can flex and push apart. Another option might be to have a bead welded around the end, but that is a little extreme.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I second what sterling said if you want to try and fix the non flare issue. A machine shop might have a solution too.
