Boost Test Questions
I am going to build a boost leak tester and have a few questions.
Do I connect the tester to the turbo, or can I connect it to the intake hose between the air filter and the turbo inlet?
Is the system closed; meaning that if my system is tight then air will not flow through the turbo, intercooler, engine, and then out of the truck? If so, is there something I should close before I do this test (CCV that hooks into the bottom of the hose between the air filter and turbo)?
Would this identify leaks in the up-pipes as well?
I also assume that hearing and soapy water will be the methods for pinpointing the leaks. I have the jist of what to do, just want a little finer detail as to the mechanics of performing this test. I feel like I am missing some boost somewhere.
Please add anything you feel may be relevant.
Thanks in advance....
