IC Boot Help

Having a hard time keeping the stock boots on with the gt42r and 50psi of boost. IC tubes are stock but the intake Y and intakes are smooth. I just bought some better clamps and hose. I have cleaned and roughed up the clamp area's and tried the hairspray trick.
But here's my question. I'm thinking of welding some wire, about the thickness of a coat hanger, around the ends of the tubes to help keep them from sliding off. Good idea, bad idea?
Any other idea's? Thanks.

Re: IC Boot Help

Yeah, putting a ridge around the edge of the tube is the way to go. Thats the way all the high pressure tractors, drag cars that I work on are, no problems with blowing tubes off... :)

Re: IC Boot Help

I welded a ring around the ends of my ic pipes and it's worked like a charm. I used stick welding rod for the ring, just tacked it in place all the way around the pipe.

Re: IC Boot Help

Wish someone had pics of wide open's setup on their race trucks. Very ingenious and neat looking.

Basically connects the two pieces together with a metal strap which bridges over the boot, that way they can seperate, and therefore can't come loose.

Re: IC Boot Help

I'll try the new boots, clamps and wire trick. If that doesn't work then I'll bolt everything together. I'm not making that much boost.
