what would cause this to happen??

Folks,

These hoses are the intercooler inlet and outlet lines attached to the back of the intercooler.
The coating has started to peel off the metal lines!
I don’t think any has gotten into the system yet, but before I put everything back together I need to know what caused this!!

Any thoughts??

I'm going to make a totally uneducated guess, but judging by the condition of the ends of the hose, I would guess that there is some serious heat issues in those pipes causing the coating to bubble and peel off. I would be inclined to scrape it all off and re-install, just make sure there is no blockage in the lines.

Are those lines Plastic or Steel
If plastic major heat issue
if painted steel could be just paint corrosion from oil, coolant, or even from hoses.
We recommend to our customers to change all the coolant and plain oil hoses to be changed every 3 to 5 years, to avoid rubber blistering

the lines are steel. you can see a bit in the pics where the black coating has fallen off.

(OTHER LIGHTNING OWNERS TAKE NOTE!!)
I just spoke to a few different guys and this issue is common for these hard lines. the coating is really crappy and any heat (there is a lot on this system) causes it to blister. any fragments can get loose and get into the system, causes issues. damn ford, another issue!!!

the reason i am concerned is if a piece falls off and clogs the intercooler or heat exchanger. some guys clean them up and put back on. i will not be doing that out of fear of it getting worse one day. i will be replacing those hard lines with some good heater hose and probably some stainless braided hose covering.

thanks for the input guys!!!
