You could get new CAC boots. But if you have it good and tight, there should not be an issue.

Have you checked where you are getting your reading from. The MAP line and all that?

Have you checked to see if the up pipes are leaking where they come into the collector for the turbo??

Quick?? In a word NO. You have to replace the exhaust doughnuts. I have read that a 2" chevy doughnut gasket works really good. I've also heard that if you put alot of copper anti-seize on the gaskets it helps keep it sealed longer. I havent tried any of these yet but sometime this week when I take the turbo off to install my new pedistsal I will replace the gaskets then too so I'll letcha know how it turns out.
