    Hi everyone,

    I have just has the 5 hour revo trail puit on my car, I have a problem with the large boost hose on the bottom left of the engine bay popping off when I drive the car hard for a few mins.

    I have replaced the pipe and tightened the jubliee clip vey tight (to the point it feels like it might break) but it still pops off when driving the car hard?? do I need to buy a thicker/larger jubblie clip or is there any other fix??
    Thanke in advance for any advice offered.

    you need to try a stronger type of clip or boned the hose on, to much pressure forceing it off.

    Try a new new clip or perhaps two.

    and try scuffing the where the pipe attatches this should give you more grip.

    Hate to break it to you, but when the trial runs out, you don't go back to your old map, you go to a "revo standard" map, which a lot of guys have said is a lot weaker than a standard map, in order for you to feel the difference more.

    Obviously this is all opinion, and is not official, but it seem to be the consensus for those that have triled it.

    Hope you get the pipe work sorted
