So, this happened on my 6.1 Hemi. Seems like they are using the same poor quality rubber, for this purge valve boot, on the Supercharger.



What we're looking at is the slow deterioration of the rubber boot. It literally falls apart. Mine is mushy and very thin, in places. When I saw this part is a hold over from the 6.1 and 5.7 Gen1 vehicles, I knew I had to fix it, on my Hellcat.



I ordered a Taylor silicone 90 (8mmx7mm)... removed the old boot and slid this one right in its place. The 8mm side goes on the supercharger and the 7mm side accepts the plastic purge valve line.

Easy peasy and looks way better than that crappy rubber boot.



You may want to use a small blast of silicone spray, to aid installation. The plastic line can be difficult to install, dry.

TAYLOR Part Number: 46201

I had to buy a 25 pack, so if you think you need one... hit me up and I'll send one your way. Just pay Priority Mail shipping.

Hope this helps.



Bob
