Take the pedistal off and replace the O rings under it. If the up pipes are leaking now is the time to fix that as well. If you ordered a set of O rings it usually comes with two of each size just for that reason.

I rebuilt my turbo a couple of months ago, and now my ebv solenoid is leaking. I am replacing it with the delete pedistal. I guess the moral is...You never know. Rod

Get a rebuild kit for the pedistal. or just tap it and put a pipe thread plug in it.

Make sure when you put the V band clamps back on you use anti-sieze on them. You will thank my later on down the road.
