Anyone else notice this?
The hose keeps pulling off the pipe, I pushed it back on when I changed the oil @ 1000 miles. I took this pic when I changed the oil @ 5000 miles last weekend.
Either the hose is a tad short or the engine is really rocking. (A good reason for the CP-E mount.)
I only noticed it because the blue lines didn't line up anymore.

Yes and I thought it was the shops fault when they replaced my heads. The first time I tightened it down it popped back up a few days later. I then loosened it from the TB and pulled it down and then tightened both clamps and all has been good.
I'm assuming it happens from the engine movement during acceleration.

Yes took mine in once already for this. The put hoses that are too short on it and needs to be removed and right one installed.

Mine has a green line painted on it and it does not seem to have moved yet. Whew. Of course, I have just 1700 miles on the clock and I've only tried pedal-to-the-floor accelerations three times so far.

Wow, I'm going to have to check mine later on! I haven't noticed any strange noises or behavior so I'm assuming it hasn't come off completely in 10k miles.

Done? as in what ? Collapse WTH lol
When a hose does not rest in a perfectly round shape, it has collapsed, therefor restricting air flow.

Good explanation. Also as for done I believe if that hose comes off you'll hear it "pop" off. And loose a lot of power.

Yep
The sound an IC hose makes when it pops off at full song is nasty.
Had one come off on me during a run at the strip on my race car and
I thought the engine went.
After that you are driving naturally aspirated.
