Intake hose popped off, any damage possible?

I got my car back after getting a HPFP put in my car (long story, not really the HPFP that was the culprit, so wasted money there...) and was at a light and accelerated away hard when I heard a loud pop and then weird and loud turbo sounding noises after going over 2k RPMs. I thought it was a backfire at first since I was having emission issues. I also had a huge loss of acceleration after you got to 2k RPMs. I drove for awhile like this trying to keep it in Drive and under 2K RPMs since that's when I would hear the noise. I got home tonight and thought I would take a look under the hood and visually inspect things and I notice the picture below.



I let the car cool down and then put it back on and tightened the hose clamp and everything runs fine now. My question is if any damage could have been done to my turbos or engine because of this. I have to talk to the shop that forgot to tighten the clamp and want to make sure there is no way any damage could have been done.

Any help is appreciated. -Thanks

I believe that is your charge pipe.

As long as you didn't drive an extended period with it off, you're fine. It will only allow unfiltered air into the engine. That will only damage something if you do it for tens of thousands of miles.

So basically, you were creating no boost and thus the reduced power.

Thank you for the reply. Yeah it was only for about 10-15 miles. Appreciate the help.

You might want to think about a metal charge pipe to replace the plastic factory one.
