Plenum / engine boost leak

Got my new 38r WW installed and egt's are up and boost was down, so did a boost leak test and found that the passenger plenum is leaking boost between it and the engine, not on the spyder side. Its always something right....
I searched around, seems pretty straight forward. Anyone have a step by step?

Pull turbo, fuel bowl?
remove plenums, clean the crap outta em, then reseal with grey sealant or what?
thanks in advance.

I don't need new ones I dont think, and I already have dieselsite's reinforcing inserts in them, I just need to pull and reseal them.

shouldn't need to pull the turbo. or the fuel bowl..

the richest ones are not those who have the most, but those who need the least

The only walkthrough I had found was the riffraff one for his billet plenums, I figured it would be about the same, there is enough room in there without pulling the turbo/pedistal to get them out and clean the surface?

Alright so finished this up last night, not as hard as I expected, just time consuming. Takes forever to get every little bit of crap off the plenums. Next time I will just bite the bullet and buy the billet ones. The stockers are like alluminum can thin and just felt chinsey. Hopefully they hold the pressure for a while for me though.

I pulled turbo, pedistol, gpr, fuel bowl, spyder, and intercooler pipes. I wanted a nice big working area so I could clean it up real good. Probably not necessary, but I also installed a regulated return from DI.
