Hi there, I am Cam. I am a GM factory trained tech and the local diesel tech.

So if I understand this correctly, the boot is popping off the turbo not the boot from the pipe? Is this correct?

If so then let me verify the clamp is the proper turbo clamp?
IF so then the fix is this. Take the boot and clamp off, use brake clean to thoroughly clean the turbo outlet, pipe and the inside of the boot so NO OIL is left. Then apply a small amount of RTV silicone to the surface of each, install and clamp it, then allow 8 hours for RTV to cure. Make sure the boot is installed fully and the edge of the clamp is beyond the lip on the pipe and turbo so it hangs on.
