have no fear!!!! the thief is here!!!!

start by looking at your hpop lines,how many miles??? if there is alot,rebuild your hpop,what i mean by that is,replace o-rings,there is a gasket(metal) behind hpop,check it....also,inspect around your turbo,there is o-rings there as well...

start by getting some simple green,spray on and gently spray off.go from there
