    Angry Blowing off charge tube

    fired it up for the first time after all the new mods. The charge tube keeps blowing off under full boost. The only thing I can figure is a t-bolt clamp. Any other ideas? It's just an X-Charger

    Mine kept doing this on my S-150.

    I just Cleaned all the Surfaces with Rubbing Alcohol and Inside the Couplers to get all the Oils and Junk Off, and Tighten the Snot out of the Clamps, and they should stay.

    I tried alcohol but forgot to clean the new charger. I do have acetone which might clean better. I'll try it tomorrow. Thanks for the reply.

    Do yourself a favor and throw those T-clamps away... I and many others are not fans of them. They tend to blow off. Some work, some dont..

    If hairspray dont work the you may have to spring for a new hose.
    I am not a fan of the tbolts either.

    I never use t-bolts. I was going to buy one to try it out. I love V-Band and band clamps but obviously they won't work here It would be nice if they mode a hose out of that same material that the couplers are made from. They have some bite to em!
