Boots blowing off.

OK... I've gone on some forums trying the hairspray thing. Didn't work. Replaced the boots and It did it again. 15psi. Really confused on why the coupler is blowing. Now the coupler attached to the turbo needs to be replaced again. GREAT. SO what else could I do to help it not blow off anymore.

I can recommend O-Rings https://www.dieselsite.com/typical2005-200760l.aspx, but if you're stock there's got to be something else. Maybe a warped CAC Pipe or turbo outlet?

When mine started to blow off, I cleaned them with Simple Green to get all the oil out, but oil still seeped out of little micro-cracks. I bought new boots and they held for many long drives until I took them off, and one blew off on WOT runs. I sprayed on Aqua Net Extra Hold hairspray, let it dry a day, and it never popped off again. I have metal O-Rings from Diesel Site that go between the CAC Boot and CAC Pipe that if it blows off again, I will add. These are supposed to help hold on the boots when exceeding 50 PSI, and since I'm stock, I can't get above 31.

just note you do not use the metal o-rings if your boots have the built in ridge like the boots deiselsite sells

Did u use a torque wrench ?
this is one of the very few places I will use one because I have had the same issue and 9 ft lbs is a hard one to tighten by feel IMO

once the boot blew off i put it back on 3 times that trip but i had to replace the clamp to solve the issue forever ( so far lol)

I used RiffRaff parts and would highly recommend them.

The blowoff issue I had was due to lack of torque. I used "feel" a couple times to tighten as much I thought a hose clamp needed (pretty much maxing out what I could do with a 1/4" drive ratchet). Wasn't nearly enough. After I used the book torques (which was substantially more than what I got by feel), haven't lost another. I cleaned everything well with brake cleaner and didn't use any hairspray, FWIW.

If you spent the money from BD, try calling BD up and see what the have to say. I have ordered from BD Diesel Performance before, and I think they're BD, and they were very helpful at answering questions.
