This was happening to me a few years ago and the problem was the oil blowback into the seal area. Ended up just cranking down on the clamp and it hasn't come off since. Have to be careful not to over-tighten it, which I'm sure you already know.

Good luck with it. It's definitely a PITA.

Take the boot off and clean it and the tube with a good solvent. Brakeclean works well. Then get some liquid laundry detergent and smear a little inside the boot and reassemble. The stuff lets the boot conform to the tube initially then dries like glue.

After mine blew off under heavy throttle and put a nice lump in the hood I searched the forums and found some people were using a 3” exhaust clamp mounted to the alternator to hold it down (see attachment) however I ended up switching to a riffraff diesel boot with some new spring clamps and never had another issue. I’ve also heard of people using a little hair spray to add a little tack to the inside of the boot, assemble it before it dries.

If the vane ring in turbo is sticking or has the actuator slot worn out then the boost is not controlled right and it overboosts at upper revs and underboosts off idle. That leads to the sluggishness and then overboost that overpowers clean hose and tight clamps. The two wire connector on the VGT solenoid may be off but that should give service engine soon light.

I take a round piece of silver solder and wrap it around the lip on cold tube, install boot and put clamp directly over the solder ring i made, tighten the clamp and it has never moved in 5 years.

You may be on to the underlying condition here as most a adding a solution to the symptom.

However if there are no other issues, as over-boost, the hairspray tip works well.

What have you done to verify that MAP, EBP, and BAro sensors are accurate? What do they all 3 read at KOEO?

Have you checked to see if the MAP hose has a leak or is plugged? How about the EBP tube and sensor - checked for carbon plugging them up?

I had same problem clean both really good, get your clamps from b&d I got mine from alligator diesel best clamps out friend is running 110psi boost with these and also spray elmers glue you can get this glue at any arts and crafts store. Clean really well with brake cleaner then apply the glue put it bacj in and tighten till spring is collapsed to the point of stripping the threads its 1/2 you wont hurt it. I did same never lose a boot again i only get around 40 to 50 psi boost. Mine first blew passing on a hill on interstate my girlfriend thought a ran someone over and freaked out lmao it took out the return hose going to degas bottle. Which was 40 at the dealer for a 1 and a half foot hose. But this will work if you clean all traces of oil off turbo and hose.
