sanding the pipe a bit with some low grit sand paper should give the hose a better bite. Either that or have someone weld a bead around the end.

i set mine up the exact same way you did it. i would get into boost and it would just pop offfrom the turbo outlet hose. i took it to work and had them weld little beads going all the way around the little 2 inch pipe so the when i clamp on top of it, it wont go anywhere. it hasnt popped off since.

and i tried the low grit sandpaper thing before and it lasted no longer than a few hours before it popped off.

so take it to a muffler shop or something and have them put beads around the pipe

edit**: you could try somehow bending the lip of the small pipe so the clamp wont slip off. but then it may be hard to get the turbo outlet hose on

Without a bead on the pipe the hose is never going to stay on since there is nothing for the hose and clamp to grip onto. Other problem is that the oil vapor from the crank case gets into the IC pipe and is going to find its way between that hose and pipe.

wow thnx guys that sounds like an awesome idea..right now i have it on tight and it hasnt moved but its still something im worried about..so i think tomorow morning before work ill wake up and take it a second so they can weld up a couple beads to keep the clamp or rubbers from sliding..

Try some hairspray at the connections. Once it drys it's like glue.
