soot on the firewall will indicate leaky up pipes. also you can have someone sit in the truck and rev up the truck with the hood popped. if you see exhaust coming out from the up pipes (behind turbo) then they are leaking.
only way to tell/hear if manifold.intercooler boots are leaking is to pressurize the system with the truck off.
can build your own boost leak detector or buy one from dieselsite.
