intercooler boots leak

Is there any way to check intercooler boots and the boots up by the turbo for leaks? Mine are dirty with oil and I heard if they are leaking it would cause a big power lose which is what im trying to fix. My brother has a 99 F350 and i have a 2000 F250 both powerstrokes and both bone stock but his is night and day more powerful than mine. I hate to spend $250 on boots if they are not leaking. Thanks

Clean all the crap off and look for holes is the best way.

Yep, you can do a leak check by building a cap from some PVC pipe and hooking it to a air compressor. You connect the PVC to the boot from your air intake, be sure to use a gauge and regulate pressure. 10-15lbs should be enough to find a leak.
