Yup! That's where I got mine from as well. They are awesome and the clamps work great.

Even if you only have to replace one of them I would get the whole set cause one from ford is $50 for just the boot no clamps.

Dieselsite Boots are good BUT......

I recently installed the Dieselsite boots on my 6.4 and have nothing but good things to say about them. I can pass along some advise given to me by A buddy.

1. Slide the boots on to both flanges as far as possible, going past the rib where the stock boots would have normally stopped.

2. (Very Important).... Install two clamps on each side of each boot, one clamp on one side of the rib and the other clamp on the opposite side of the rib. The only location on the intake system I was not able to get two clamps on each side is the hot side, first boot off the turbo.

3. (Equally Important)..... Sit in drivers seat, grab steering wheel firmly with both hands, pull right knee to the area of your right ear, and thrust right foot through the firewall.

Ok what am I doing wrong?? Both my buddy and I keep blowing off the boot (hot side 1st one off the turbo). We cleaned and use hair spray on them. Again you can't get a double clamp on that one side that keeps blowing off. These are the nice boots from Diesel site. Durable but they keep blowing off??? Does anybody else blow theirs off or did we do something wrong on the install? How much boost are you guys pushing through them with out them blowing off?
