Turbo Boot Clamps??

Mine have blown off twice now and left me high and dry. Are there any after market clamps and boots that actually hold?

Thanks, OSD

Re: Turbo Boot Clamps??

I doubt there is much of an aftermarket for them. It's rare to find one that when cleaned up and put back on properly, or replaced by the dealer with the new ones (depending on which you're talking about) that keeps popping off.

Re: Turbo Boot Clamps??

I am blowing off my Banks blue ones (the double thick ones). We are going to clean them (they get real oily from the CCV), and glue/double clamp them. I may also reroute the CCV.

Re: Turbo Boot Clamps??

I had trouble with mine when pulling 6% grade. I cleaned them off good with carb cleaner and got back home. I took them off at home and then cleaned up both pipe and hose again then sprayed them with Auqua net hair spray before putting them back on. No problems in the last 40k miles.

Re: Turbo Boot Clamps??

Mine kept blowing off especially when I was towing. Ford finally replaced it with a new hose that has a spring wrapped around the outside of it. Thats been almost a year now and it hasn't moved at all so far.

Aqua net hair spray? What function does that do?

I had the lower tube/hose blow off and with knowledge gleaned here I did not panic, I limped home blowing a lot of smoke and making a lot of turbine noise.
Called moderator Super Duty John and he hooked me up with some plumbers pipe jizz that is oil resistant. Never blew off again but I suspect the next guy that tries to get it off may have challenges.

I believe it acts as a friction element or glue-like.

I sort of figured. The problem as I see it is not that the clamps are insufficient but there is so much damn oil in there it just slips off.[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smokin.gif[/img] There has to be some modification that doesn't route all that oil fumes in there. Oil in the tubes and CAC can't be contributing to efficiency.

The CCV line is to blame. The solution is to re-route it so that it does not recylce into the turbo. I have not done this yet, but the best thing I have heard is to set up a small decanter that can vent. Every so often, you have to drain the oil. That would keep oil out of the entire intercooler system. If anyone has a "kit" for this, i would be interested in hearing about it. PM me on that please.

I too would like to hear if anyone makes a kit to re-route the CCV out of the intercooler.

These all sound like great ideas. If it fixes the problem, great! My concern with modifying the boots and or clamps is it only masking the real problem. Bad turbo, producing too much boost? What will that do to my warranty if it blows the turbo, motor, or homogenator valve?

Re: Turbo Boot Clamps??

Boots should stay on whether you are running 20, 30 or 60 psi. Stock turbos put out ~30 psi if they are running good (some have seen 35-36 psi). Boots coming off means a bad clamp or CCV oil lubing up the connections.
