Boost/exhaust leak somewhere

Alright guys help me out here, tired of searching old threads haha. So driving around town normal keeping rpm's under 2000 truck drives and acts normal. Now when I want to hammer it or pass someone on the freeway I can hear air rushing out from somewhere. It only does it at about 15psi. Don't hear tea kettle noises from it, and like I said truck acts normal. When I'm on the freeway at about 65mph my egts can climb to 1000 pretty easily on a small incline. Any ideas or suggestions? Truck is an 06 stock minus intake and exhaust

Oh yeah, all boots look/feel fine and free of tears. Only one I haven't checked is the plastic one coming off the inter cooler drivers side. You think my plastic tube cracked?

Probably...


Do this: get a bottle of soda, fill it with water and put some detergent and make some bubbles. Make a hole in the cap of the bottle and spray some of the detergent over the turbo piping, you will see the leak with a lot of bubbles comming out of it.

That sounds exactly like the symptoms my truck had when I cracked the plastic cac tube. May be a good time to upgrade to a metal one. I was on the road and pulling a 16,000lb. trailer and had to pay over $200 for a plastic replacement at a dealer just to keep going.

Well fellas, happy to report problem is fixed! There was a crack in the stock plastic tube, replaced it with a stock one and riff raff boots and runs like a champ, now just need to fix the no start issue when hot this weekend (stc, dummy plugs, and standpipes)
