Default Meth Elbow pops off - 10-12-2015, 12:54 PM

Hi everyone i have a BMS meth bung elbow and the intercooler (lower end) of the elbow keeps popping off on me. Seems like she's good for a couple weeks but slowly must be slipping off the stock plastic pipe coming up from the intercooler.
I have the after market clamp on there and have really fiddled with it to make sure its seated well. Anyone have a more permanent solution as its getting quite irritating to fix.

Not sure if your serious but i was thinking of putting something sticky on the OEM plastic side
Anyone have any suggestions for a products thats more industrial than hair spray and doesn't get hard like glue that makes things sticky ?

Make sure it has as much overlap as you can on CP end and intercooler end. I've bought extra jubilee clips but so far screwing the current one really tight has held for a good while.

I remember using hairspray from my 3D printing days. It is very versatile.

Hairspray and make sure you wash the elbow free of all oil or it will just keep popping off.
