Update: found two huge leaks by using this turbo leak tool. You could also make one but I didnít. The tool is good quality and function for what it cost.

I also ended up using one of the kitís clamps after snapping one of poor quality (that came with my upgraded intake elbow). Biggest challenge I found was finding the right sized quality clamps that would tighten down on the new turbo and intercooler with some force. Having good clamps for higher boost applications goes a long way.

Fortunately I had an AFE boost tube kit I previously bought, but it didnít fit the oem setup I had before, so I didnít use it.

Just drove a 3 hr trip and the truck ran like it hadnít ever before. What a difference solid, consistent boost makes. Now I can continue to dial in the wastegate setting.
