WTF!!!

Ok guys, here is another one for you. I was on my way to work this morning (all of 3 blocks) and as I was accelerating I heard a loud pop almost like a back fire and I lost some power. It didn't die it just wouldn't accelerate like it normally does. It also started blowing black smoke which it normally never does on the tune I keep it set on. There was very little power. Here are all of the recent circumstances. I filled it yesterday with about 24 gallons and added some power service in with it. It's a balmy 21 degrees this morning and I had let the truck run for about 10 minutes before I left. I haven't had any issues with it in a long while. The truck is a 99 F-350 CC LB 4X4 with a 7.3. There is a chip installed and I believe it is a TS. It was in there before I got it and the guy wasn't sure. I have this creeping dread that something just happened to my turbo but I am praying that it is something else that isn't gonna be expensive to fix. I haven't had a chance to look under the hood yet but I looked underneath as I was heading inside and I didn't see anything dripping.

Mine sounded like a shotgun going off under the hood when I blew my boot off. Mine was the first boot off the spider on the drivers side.

Boot... either your clamps are tired or your boots are. I went all-out... but I'm not saying you should follow my lead-off with a Buck$Zooka.

X4 on the boot.

Be sure to thoroughly clean/degrease the boot and CAC tube/spider before re-installing, or you'll dirty another pair of undies the first time ya make some boost (and have to install it again)... I like to use purple power/simple green then rinse with brake clean and wipe it down prior to install. You need all the mating surfaces 'squeeky clean'. If you use brake clean, make sure you avoid getting it inside CAC tubes, etc - or you may wreck more than your britches when the GP's ignite it inside the combustion chambers!

Its also a good idea to build a boost leak detector and check everything for leaks 'while you're in there'.

After you clean the boot out spray it with hairspray to help hold the boot on

X4...or is it X5 on the boot blowing off.

at 21* stuff will be shrinking and allowing just enough loss of tension for the boot to blow off espically if the last time anything was touched in that system it was muey caliente outside.

Did anyone say "blew a boot yet"???

Mine sounded like a shotgun going off under the hood as well. Filled the freeway with a thundercloud of black smoke and power fell off like I was hooked up to a boat anchor. Clean her up real good and re-install the boots nice and snug, if you can swing the cash, look at RDP's boot kit, very nice! Riffraff Diesel: RDP Complete CAC Intercooler Boot Kit

Goodluck!

So I took a quick glance under the hood and all of the boots looked like they were still in place. Of course it was quick because I'm at work and I didn't want the boss to catch me I'm going to take a better look as soon as I get done eating. Is it possible to have split the boot where I couldn't easily see it? I had them all off not long ago when I replaced an injector and I cleaned the hell out of them because they were pretty nasty. I am thinking I am gonna get the Riff Raff boots if one is split. So now for a couple of questions. You guys have thrown out a couple of terms that I'm not familiar with. CAC tube and spider and how do I build a leak detector? It definitely sounded like a shotgun when it happened (great comparison btw) and without a doubt I crapped myself when it happened. I immediately looked in my mirror to see if there was any smoke or debris bouncing down the road behind all I saw was a giant cloud of black smoke obscuring the road. I'm glad there wasn't anyone behind me. Thanks again guys and I will let you know what I find.

CAC tube is Charge Air Cooler... or intercooler, some people call them IC pipes as well. the spider is the piece that is shaped like an "X" (painted black in the picture below), the IC pipes (CAC tubes) hook to this. There are also 2 boots on the bottom of the spider that hook up to the plenums. It is possible that you split a boot too. Give everything a good look over and let us know what you find.

So I just checked and I blew the passenger side boot down at the intercooler. WHEW!!! I will pull it into the fire station tonight after our work day and pull them all off and clean them. I'm thinking it's time to re-route that damn ccv. Once again I bow before the mighty psd gods...you guys are awesome.

The first picture in my post was with the 5-legged spider missing, but you can see it in the second one. The boots below are harder to spot with all that stuff in there, but don't forget to look at the boots on the intercooler by the radiator. CAC - I dunno... Compressed Air Conduit?
