Happened to me on stock twins and 19psi on a cold night. Same thing as you, I blew off the plastic side end tank. You will probably need a new gasket in there and re clamp the shit out of all of those little notches. Mine was never the same so I got an FMIC...

same thing happened to me soon after I got the car. I put on a BCC and bleeder T and went out for a drive, everything else stock at the time. Punched in on the highway and blew the end tank off. In my car the stock IC was dented on the bottom (unknown to me at the time) which I think may have slightly damaged the IC so the high boost just blew it apart... oh well...

happened to me too when I was BPU + nitrous.

I had a nitrous backfire which blew off the weakest link, the stcok plastic end tanks. easy to fix though & a probably a good time to upgrade to a front mount.

yup, mine did that. ripped the sucker apart, cleaned it and resealed it with the original gasket, but i punded the FUCK out of those retaining 'teeth' and its held GREAT for the couple days i had it on there before i went single.
