You have to really take the intercooler and plenum off. Then you can get at it easily.
It could be a leaky injector block. That side is a bit harder to torque down - 18 ft lb from memory. But it would be worth re-torqueing it. 6 bolts/side - two per injector block. The worst one is behind the air plate chamber - on #3. You can't torque this unless you remove the system. But if you are lucky you can get a spanner on it and nip it a bit more if the others are soft.
The best way to find source is to pressurise the system. Then spray water (soapy) or feel around for any cold air - follow the hissing if you can. Thats how I found all my injector blocks to be leaking. There is a base gasket against the head.
