This elbow keeps popping off when the truck gets boost, it’ll pop off an leave a lound wheeze sound. What can I do to keep it from popping off / why would it be popping off ? I attached pictures

Could be an old rubber boot, try removing it by hand and see if it slips off easily, it should normally take a bit of force to remove. Like person above mentioned you can zip tie for a quick fix.

Detonation can cause this. Make sure tune is safe before mechanically securing the hose,.

Should there be signs leading to that ? Everything seems to be fine nothing unusual everything runs good, the elbow does look to be old an just slips right off with no force

Detonation is difficult to hear most times. Pull plugs and check condition of them. Charts available to see what issues look like. Or a simple test is to octane up(Torco Race fuel concentrate is my favorite) and see if issue stops. If satisfied there is no detonation, a bit of sealant and a zip tie should be good to go.

Oil has probably contaminated the rubber, making it soft. Add some boost and blows it off.
Like the others have said, zip tie.
