So about 3 weeks ago I took off my hot side intercooler tube to paint it. I taped off the ends where the boots go over to make sure the paint wouldn't effect them. Well after I put it back on, the stock boots blew off on me anytime I went over 5 psi boost. That got old really fast so I ordered the RiffRaff boots and for 2 weeks, they stayed on fine.
On the way home from work the other day, some kid in a civic tried racing me and I couldn't say no. Well, after 10 seconds of 20+ psi boost I hear that dreadful POP and WHOOOSHHH yet again. I'm really getting pissed off at this point. I've been careful not to over-tighten the clamps as I don't want to break them, but I'm really tempted to go out there and tighten them as tight as I possibly can because I'm tired of this happening. I don't want to void my warranty with a CCV reroute. Any suggestions?
Try a small shot of hairspray around the pipe before you slip it on.

Well I tightened them as much as I could and it got me to work this morning. I stayed under 10 psi the whole time. On the way home ill drive it harder and see what happens. 95powersmoker I like your idea but I dont know the first thing about welding. I thought about zip tying the pipe to the alternator or something that way when it tries to blow out it won't be able to move enough.
