blown boot ?

I finally got the 6.0 intercooler in and took it out for a run. stomped on the go pedal and at about 7.5 lbs. of boost I went "BOOM". Scared the s*** out of me but thanks to all the info floatin around I knew exactly what it was before I ever opened the hood. It was the boot on the hot side of the Spyder.
Anyway my ? is can I use a silicon Hump Hose even though it doesnt have that little ridge molded into it like the stock boots?
Also where would be a good place to get just the two short hoses for the "spyder-to-intercooler pipes", if I can use them?

Thanks guys
~Jim

Re: blown boot ?

I just use regular silicone hose that every truck shop sells. I have a lot of the Paraflex brand, but it's all good. You don't need the bead. If you are worried double clamp it.

Re: blown boot ?

I have used blue silicone rad. hose for big rigs . It is good for 28 psi so far. I clean the boot and the pipe or spyder with brake clean as well as the clamps and since doing so have not blown anymore boots off.

P.S. I am hardheaded I was turned on to the brake clean deal by a little ole guy that has helped make my truck what it is today.

Re: blown boot ?

brake-kleen it and use hairspray to help keep the hoses on. It fixed all of my problems.

Thanks guys!

Yeah, I think I will just get some strait silicone hose since it is cheaper.

Re: blown boot ?

Just make sure you put a "Hump" hose somewhere on each side between engine and intercooler as the intercooler is fixed to the body and the engine is all OVER the place between WOT and a lift. Without something to soak up the movement even if it didn't have any boost in the tube it would still physically pull the thing apart.

If you've still got the OEM couplers at the intercooler with the bellows in them you're good. I just wouldn't put straight hose couplers at both ends without any way for it to accomodate engine movement.

Good Luck.

Re: blown boot ?

Ok guys, just before Charles said dont go with straight hose I ordered a 8" piece that I am gonna cut in half. it is the same hose that I used on the driver side of the intercooler. heres a link: dieselpowerproducts

The intercooler has the 3x3.25x8 on the passenger side and the 3x3x8 on the driver. I ordered the 3x3x8 again to cut in half and use at the spyder with some hairspray and double clamps.
Would the be OOOKKK or is it an absolute NO, NO!
