After replacing it, IT HAPPENED AGAIN. With a brand new hose. WTF? Why would this happen again to new hose right after it was installed? It cant simply be due to running more boost than stock cause its been fine for 5,000+ miles. Any thoughts?
must be the worm clamps? i'm struggling to get all my crap back on after trying to fix this. i cant help but think it's just going to happen again as soon as i put it all together. do i really have to shell out for an overpriced avo hose? or maybe just some new clamps and my stock hose
