I just completed a transaction with Bob @ DieselSite, by sending my intercooler boots back...
The first set of boots I ordered were the wrong ones, & it seems they are NOT clear about which sets go where, and naturally, I ordered the wrong ones..What I wanted was the intercooler boots that mount up along side the radiator...Well after talking with them, they corrected my error, and shipped me the kind I wanted...
When I got them, they were about 2" to long, and needed to be modified..
My 'experienced' diesel mechanic refused to be responsible for cutting them
to size and mounting them....He basically refused to install the part...
So, I ended up ordering just the single one I needed that had been leaking..
Cost of the rh, passenger side intercooler boot was $65 from Ford Dealer..
Mind you,,,,,the set from DieselSite was $157 + Freight of $15.00
The most important and interesting thing, is that Bob claims to have improved their product, and I have absolutely NO reason not to believe him....
What he seems to negate is that Ford also has improved their product...
The new one I got, had a different type of material on the inside, [red in color] which I grossly assume is an upgrade to the 13 year old product that finally failed...
I have just returned them to DieselSite as of yesterday, and am waiting to see if he gives me full credit....

I will only post back here if he doesn't...
