I am running a BD CCV filter which does a good job of removing the oil from the intake so I am not as worried about that part. I didn't like the fact I was blowing bubbles out the ends of the boot after assembling testing. :thdown: My assumption is the bubbles were caused by the Purple Power I used to clean the boots with. So until I can do some more testing and research I continue using the Riffraff boots.
Hi everyone. We are constantly upgrading everything in our line. When new technology or material comes available, we jump on it. We have sold tens of thousands of individual hoses over the years. We even had a customer send back a set with 600k miles on them for review (we gave him a new set for doing this). The "boot" problems, that the same few talk of, are the same post about one individual that we never got the opportunity to inspect, warranty, decline, or otherwise.
Did we upgrade our boots because we had an issue? No. We did, however, try to address the issue that I believe that customer had/ caused while we were upgrading to new materials that are now available. This will make them stronger and less prone to damage from installs like screwdrivers, sharp edges on intercooler pipes, etc.
