Best bet would be to call a vendor that's on here tomorow morning...

The intercooler boots are the "rubber hoses" that connect the intake piping together...

Sometimes they slide off the pipe, even though the clamp is still tight.

I think on early '05's the intercoolers had plastic tanks, and they are notorious for blowing the end gaskets...

:yourock: you nailed it. plastic end of the intercooler separated from the cooler just enough to loose all my boost. going to shop around tonight. I found a older cooler that is all metal for 100 on craigslist but dont know if i can make it work. not sure what year the cooler is. thanks again for the help. Jason
