turbo hiss

hello i recently am noticing a hiss that sounds like air being let out of the tire while engine is running. i can hear it in and outside the cab. my up pipes look to be in good shape and no soot showing. i smell no fumes either. it is comming from that general area though. can somthing wrong with the turbos cause this noise? i have no power loss and boost seems ok. how can i trouble shoot to find the problem?

k this thing is driving me crazy. if I dont see soot around the up pipe what is another way I can check to see if it is leaking? I have a mini max tunner. would my exaust back pressure change if there is a leak? I wish there was a way to run smoke through the motor and see where it comes out. any ideas?

Yeah man. That would drive anyone up a wall.
The best way to get closer to the noise is, get a stethoscope & listen to it . Hopefully that will pin point your problem. Good luck to you
