Lightbulb CFM Intake boots- Warning/tip

Re-tighten the hose clamps after several drive cycles!!

Ok, so TWICE now I've been moofed by the hose clamps popping off of the silicone intake manifold connectors - and as we know, that causes a VERY rough running engine.
Both times I've not been far from home, thank goodness.

Question/study underway:
How many times / what is the frequency of a retorque of the hose clamps is required before they stay in place?

(Hope this is the last...)
