Sean, checking back in. I think I recognize the type of hose you have as an industrial product from Gates. It is very, very stiff. Will not bulge under boost.

Did you get a chance to look for the turbo support bracket which infraredcalvin mentioned. He has a very good point that without this bracket the boost pressure will force the against the turbo inlet pipe deflecting your headers, potentially enough to cause the upper O-ring to squeeze out.

You might loosening off the upper hose clamp and try pulling the pipe out of the hose, forcing it against the intercooler, then re-tighten the hose clamp.
