Turbo boots

On my truck the boots on the Y pipe going into the intake are a little oily i i was thinking that they are getting old and need to be changed, but every where i go (auto part stores) say that don't have them, and that i have to go to a dealer and get them, My question is do i really need to get the ford turbo boots or can i use like the rubber boots for an intake if they will fit, or will these not work? just wondering, not to sharp in the diesel field yet so bare with me.

The oil is due to the crankcase vent that ciruclates the oily gasses into the intake. This oil gets into the CAC system and ends up seeping through the boots and coating everything in an oily mess. It doesn't necessarily mean that the boots are bad, however I'm not a big fan of the stock CAC boots as I found one on my truck cracked with only 4 years on it. If you want to upgrade the boots, check out www.dieselsite.com. Bob sells a great upgrade kit.

Also check out the CCV mod. There are several versions of this floating around (vent to open atmosphere vs. closed loop catch canister), but the jist of it is to prevent oil from being drawn into the intake tube which will keep the CAC system and engine clean.

CCV mod should make them stop seeping oil but you should probably look into replacing the boots anyway. The factory boots material isn't supposed to be used in an oily environment and they will break down.

You should fill out your signature so we at least know what year truck you have. If I remember right it is an OBS so Dieselsite won't have the right size boots. Check out the silicone boots that verocious motorsports has. I can't remember off hand what size they are on an OBS but I think it's 2 1/4 or 2 1/2.

I am running these and they are so much better than stock. Well worth the price. But only do it with the CCV reroute so you wont soak them in oil like the stockers.

The only reason for going to diesel site boots is because they are resistant to oil. So why would you HAVE to do the CCV re-route?? Yes I know they have some extra layers of material but regular old silicone boots work great if you do the CCV mod...I know from experience, so why would you need to spend the big money on the dieselsite boots?

And furthermore I already stated that dieselsite does not have boots for OBS trucks, which is what he has :RTFM:

I just stated that because if you dont reroute the CCV, you will still get the oil outside of the boots. And that is one of the reasons why he wants new boots.
