So upon putting things back together on my truck after the vacuum pump rebuild, I think it is time for new IC boots and clamps..  I don't have the truck here today and am wanting to look at all my options.  Does anyone know the sizes of the boots and clamps?  Also if you have replaced yours and like or don't like anything about what you replaced with, please share that too..

 

Thank you

I figured it out...  Still interested in opinions.  Anyone running siliconeintakes.com hose?  I see posts in other forums that guys like them, but there 3" hump hose is only 3" long and our stock hump hoses are 4.5" long.  I would probably be comfortable losing 1/2" or less.   But 1-1/2" seems like a fair amount to compensate for...  Thoughts??

I have them on mine. Put them on 2 years ago. I bought about 5 uears ago and dont remember them having the hose with the hump. I used straight piece that was 3" long. I think thats all they had then but it has been to long ago to know for sure. The couplings and the reducing are still working fine. They fit well and dont leak. I run about 32 psi thru them on my truck How long they last compared to others, only time will tell. So far I am satisfied. Here is photo of the straight coupling, an inch longer could not hurt. Cant really get a photo of the reducers.

Thank you, I ordered just the clamps because I stripped one out last weekend, couldn't get passed my OCD.. I did find some on www.intakehoses.com that are the correct length and the 3 5/8" to 3" reducers for the bottom too.. They are a little more money than siliconintakes.com but not as much as the other brands I have seen.  I will report back on the quality of the siliconeintakes.com clamps as they are literally $3 +/- each..

Get new boots also if you put soapy water on them and pressurize the system they will bubble. Most vendors carry different brands of boots I got the cheaper ones can't remember from who, blue in color rated for 50psi. I hit 50+ few times playing around.
