Turbo o-rings..

Recently replaced my compressor wheel and lost about 10 lbs of boost, i took off all the boots cleaned them and replaced the turbo to y-pipe o-ring and gained about 4 lbs more. I'm wondering if the compressor housing has a o-ring in it as well? i didn't really look when i took it off. And the truck is running really hot. before the daily tune would just touch 1200 and stay right around there at WOT, now it hits 1300-1400.. so i'm thinking i've got a leak somewhere.
thanks, mitch.

But, i do remember putting that o-ring in with the y-pipe and the housing still on the turbo so it may have not seated all the way, i'll double check it sometime this weekend.

there is an o-ring that goes between the main compressor housing and the compressor back plate. Every site i have seen it on it is an additional add on piece , it does not come with the kit. Look at guzzles page and you will find the o-ring. Would think after opening up the housing that you would have to replace this as it would be pancaked out
