Default Turbo hose blows off

I have a f350 4x4 06'. the blue silicone hose next to the turbo going to the intercooler blows off when I tow uphill for an extended amount of time. I only tow that way about twice a year, and ford has never been able to tell me why it happens. I had the Banks big hoss bundle on it. Ford kept blaming that, so I took it off. except for the exhaust. Still happens. My turbo blew up after about a month of owning the truck, Might have been from me towing a 34' 5th wheel and 18' ski boat up a large grade doing 70mph, but not sure. I hope this is enough info to get started. thanks

This common, the boots can get saturated with oil and pop off easy, I clean them with brake clean, the boots and tubes, then reinstall, Ford sells upgraded boots that hold on better, there are other manufactuers that sell better ones too.

Common issues with worn boots. We sale upgraded boots with SS clamps.

Don't you just love it when the dealership points to the aftermarket part that has NOTHING to do with the problem!?!

As previously mentioned, the crank case vent goes into the charge tube above the driver side valve cover. About the only real fix is to re-direct it somewhere more useful, like over the rear u-joint.

I've had a Banks elbow and Techni-cooler on mine for a couple of years without issue. I'd put the Banks Techni-Cooler back in (esp if it came with the elbow and larger plumbing), clean things up as suggested, and re-route the crank case vent if it persists after cleaining.

Ok, thanks for the response. So I have to clean the connection points of the hoses before every trip? Thats a horrible design. I have the ok to put the banks intercooler, ram air, and six gun tunner back in?

If it were mine, I'd clean them good, install, tighten good, see what happens. If the problem persisited, I would look at redirecting the CCV. If the truck wasn't bought new, I would also investigate why it had so much blow by. I bought my Banks used, did a wipe with a rag, threw it in, pounded 25~30 psi of boost, no problems. I've run it on Edge Hot, IDP Xtreme and Gear Head's SRL tunes.

I don't know if there is a valve like a PCV in the valve cover, but I do know that's where the oil comes from. Furthermore, I don't know if there is a baffle in the 6.0 valve cover, but, it's been my gasser experience that if there is no baffle in the valve cover under the breather it blows oil like its cool. Sometimes fixes on gassers work on diesels, they are pushrod oil burners afterall.

I keep a spare boot in my service truck for that application. The oil deteriorates the rubber/silicone and it continually pops off. As the truck weighs 17,500 lbs, its like pulling a trailer everyday, and it's very seldom it's driving at under 10 PSI boost. IMO, the best option is to remove the old boot, clean everything really well, and install a new one.

You're not making anywhere enough boost to be blowing these off repeatedly, clean the boots, clean the connection points and reinstall. If it blows off again, get new boots, clean them, reinstall. You shouldn't have any issues after that. As far as the crank case vent re-route, that's your call. I haven't found the need to do it yet, some guys do it, others don't. You shouldn't have to clean them after every trip, you just need to clean it after every time it pops off, and it shouldn't be popping off repeatedly. The banks tube doesn't really do anything, even though it's larger diameter, it still necks down at the connection points. Probably want to look at getting rid of that 6 gun too, especially with what you're telling us you tow. Get an SCT with some good custom tow tunes, it will be leaps and bounds better than that Banks stuff. Your transmission will thank you.

In my case, the truck does make about 28psi. It's usually around 20 that it will blow off. Even when I wire the tube to the turbo and alternator bracket for support. I have found that once it blows once, it's time for a new one. When I didn't have a spare, I re-installed one 5 times on a trip up a logging road. Wired or, not, it kept blowing.

I have replaced the tube about 10 times, (the silicone one)pretty much after each blow off. While I had the banks, they (banks) replaced their silicone hose and the metal hose a few times trying to help. It never did.

have you ever heard of this?

Issue:
Some 2003-2006 F-Super Duty, 2003-2005 Excursion and 2004-2006 E-Series vehicles, all equipped with 6.0L engine, may exhibit coolant venting from the degas bottle cap. The condition typically occurs when operating the vehicle under a load such as trailer towing, uphill driving, or both.

I received that plus a whole article from Banks. Just fyi, I'm not a motor head, I can do basic things, I'd rather pay someone to do the more involved things.
