Intercooler pipe

So....The truck pulled the new camper like a champ.....right up until a hard downshift on a long grade, and the intercooler pipe was blown out of the coupler to the turbo.

It was about 2.5 hours from the house, going up an 8 mile or so grade of 6-7% with cruise set at 63. Truck was working hard but doing fine, but a little over 3/4 of the way up the hill the grade increased a bit and the truck downshifted hard. Before I could get it out of cruise control, the pipe blew off and obviously lost most power. Made a gnarly coal rollin' smoke show for about half a mile until we got to a point on the hill that had a shoulder.

Long story short, once the engine cooled down for a while, I got a regular hose clamp on the IC pipe side of the coupler to hold it temporarily and we turned around to had home to fix this better.

I've got a better piece of silicone to replace the coupler and T clamps for both sides. I think that will *probably* be good, but I'm also thinking about getting a Wehrli drivers side IC pipe over nighted tomorrow and be done with this for good.

@geektoad

Your fix is solid. Silicone coupler hoses and good T clamps will hold.
You are building a bit more boost, now, quicker


I have built some super hot rod diesels, that were building 40-50 PSI, and silicone hose with Breeze Tclamps will hold, if you install them correctly. Keep us posted!

Also do a PVC reroute while you're under the hood, lol.

A little hair spray will help keep the boots in place until the clamps are tight.

Man that sucks.

I went over all my intake hose clamps on my Cruze diesel and was surprised to find almost all of them loose. I got a good 3 to 6 turns out of them to tighten them down.

That's the worst part...the side that blew was a press fit clamp, no way to tighten it.

But...new additions to my travel tool box:

This is in addition to the new beefier coupler and T clamps that are on the truck already. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
