This sucks! First of all I ended up as the DD tonight for some friends then after I drop them all off I drive home and find out that my boost has dropped from a whopping 20 to 17. WTF! Then as I pull into my parking spot I notice a little puddle so I crawl under the truck to find I have a small coolant leak and THEN on top of that one of my summer tires which I put on my truck yesterday is going flat and has a HUGE hole in it! Holy crap if it isnt one thing its three! Okay so to getting this solved. How do I use a boost leak detecter "pvc pipe with are hose connection"? Do I just clamp it in the intake hose and then turn on the pressure and then listen for leaks?

Well I made my own set up checked it out and i have a serious leak coming from the up pipe on the drivers side. What all do I need to do to fix that. That is the donut gasket leaking, correct?

i was going to suggest checking the boost sensor fitting and the gauge line, but sounds like you found the problem in the up-pipe. do a search for "donut" and you should find some info here. i guess bad donut gaskets are a common enough issue, but i've read about up pipes rusting out.

Get you some exhaust donuts for a small block cheby and use those, you will also prolly need a new up pipe as its prolly eroded.
