Boost Hose Pop-out

Recommended Posts

Last night the passenger-side boost hose popped out of the intercooler on its way up to the plenum (still attached). There was a god-awful loud pop! Anyway, once I shoved it into the hole, all was well, but I was too afraid to boost on the way home (long drive). Made it home fine.

Today I looked in the engine compartment to check how secure it was. I pulled on it pretty hard and it didn't give. Do you think I'm okay to drive with boost again? Or should I remove the bumper to verify the clip is still there and properly attached?

When you reattached, did you hear a click? You can always give it a go...it won't destroy your car....

Outside of a minute chance of FOD (Foreign Object Damage) getting into the intake tract, I wouldn't think there would be any harm in driving with boost after re-installing the boost hose outside of it happening again, most people just upgrade to silicon hoses.

Btw, there was a TSB and design change to the boost hoses back in 01, 02 and maybe 03, I dont know the specifics but it would be due diligence to do a search on the forums, could very well address your situation.

I just had this problem with my car 996 turbo, 2001...

Popped it back into the intercooler and no more problems..

however, is there a solution to avoid this happening again? Replace hoses or something?

If they are original hoses then new hoses are better.

There are after market hoses but the second gen hoses from Porsche are likely just as good.

Ok. Then I'll contact my dealer to buy new ones!

Is it recomendet to swap all of them, or is the passenger-side hose more likely to popp than the other hoses?
