Checking intercooler pipes and boots?

Think i have a leaky boost pipe or boot, what is the best way to check them without removing them. I'm thinkin the hole is not goin to be big enough to spot just with a visual inspection. Under accelaration or high boost i am hearin a intermittent hissing noise from under the hood. Pretty sure its not comin from the coolant tank, truck is has not been chipped since it has been studded, and there is no residue around the cap.

Most likely, one of the boots. best way to check them is remove them and do a close visual inspection. Inside and out, make sure to bend it all around as the tear will show up that way.
