    I thought of that. Might find something decent. It’s not really a junkyard part. FLDs haven’t been built in 15 years. Found one for Columbia online. $88. Looks similar.

    I’m always seeing SS piping, usually old fuel tanker hoses. I’ve passed up intake plumbing etc. it’s hard to pass up stuff I see trashed or laying on the shoulder of the road.

    I’ve gone 300 miles it’s holding up. It’s only temporary. If I spend $400 to fix it, it better at least be shiny. Lol. Trucks running great. All new fuel lines. No more sputtering. I’m sure it’ll blow out again tomorrow when I have a heavy in the hills. I’m on a 3 pallet 1100 mile round trip now. 7.5 mpg. Loving it!!!

    This was a 24 model and the cold side is 13” silicone. The hot side was 20.75” from each end of the boots and stainless.
    I think the older ones used a longer cold side.

    Big Sky truck parts in Missoula had an elbow deep pile of old intercooler piping. I found piping to fit an old 87 peterbilt there but they've sold everything and retired. You gotta find an old timer that has been hoarding parts for a few decades, worthless junk until someone like us comes along in need!

    The ecm controls the turbo by only allowing a proper amount of fuel based in boost pressure, if you have a boost leak the ecm will only inject what is needed.
    Low power on a 60 series alot of times is the boost sensor, listen for high pitch noise while under boost, seen the intake man leak at the gaskets, seen the small pipe that supply air to the compressor have a hole and so on

    I did what you suggested. Great little junkyard south side of Atlanta. $10 for a 1 ft. Pipe. $4 for 4 clamps. What a deal. Beats paying $366. Thanks.
