You can pressurise the intake spacers while you have the IC off.
You may need to remove plenum too - can't remember which way I did it - but plenum is easy.
You get a big bung and block the intake throat - about 90 mm from memory.
Then hook air cylinder, or compressor with control valve on to an outlet in the system. You will find a hose connection point somewhere. Have a press gauge in the line - take up to your boost pressure. If you have a bad leak, you won't even get that far before you hear air hissing out from under the spacer blocks. With your free hand - you probably have the other holding the 90mm bung in, feel around the spacer blocks. If you have a leak you will feel it - particularly if you wet your hand.
