Elephant under the hood
I had my intercooler pipes off during a V3 install. After reinstalling the pipes, as she builds boost, I'm hearing what sounds like an elephant squealing. My first thought was loose clamps on the couplers. I tightened them nearly as far as they can go. The sounds still happens, just now at slightly higher boost levels. I don't have a boost gauge, so i'm not 100% positive. I've heard of people using hair spray under the couplers as a sealant.
Does this sound like a boost leak? Is an adhesive required to prevent leaks?
Please, help me silence this animal.
