Ok lets start with boost leaks.... You can "leak" boost from any air connection after you turbo compressor wheel. This includes the compressor housing oring, intake spider band clamp, any of the four intercooler boots, the bootsthat connect the intake spider to the heads, or less likely the intercooler itself. You can find how to do a boost leak test with a simple search of this site. Now for up pipe leaks.... There is a "up pipe" connected to each of your exhaust manifolds. These pipes route exhaust to the turbo charger. From the factory the connection at the top of these pipes was sealed with donut gaskets to allow for thermal expansion. These donuts are noted for failing and causing pre turbo exhaust leaks which kills power and economy. The best way I have found to check the up pipes is to actually start the engine and actually stick my hand behind the turbo and feel for leaks at the top of these pipes. Most people upgrade to bellowed up pipes to resolve the issue. Once again a simple search will yield a plethora of information on the subject.
I am not here! I am Gone! I highly doubt I will ever be back!!!
