Checking for boost leaks.

Remove your intake tube from the turbo. Start the truck and let it idle. Take a piece of plexi-glass and slowly block the air supply until it is completely blocked. Truck will idle very rough and blow white smoke. Take a can of starting fluid and spray on your intercooler hoses and intake hoses. When you find the leak, you engine RPMs will spike up a little bit. Then, you know where your leaks are!

Better way...

Make a coupling cap with a air hose chuck on the end of it. Mount it on the turbo inlet and pressurize the system up to 30 PSI (regulated air pressure). Using soapy water solution spray all plumbing and look for bubbles...

Sorry no pics available here...:w:
