Bryan - if you look at the first pic I posted - you can strip all the fuel/ air stuff off without removing motor. I have had all my stuff off/out several times. Can do it on auto pilot now.
Much of it was for chasing leaks. My phenolic spacers were leaking like crazy.
The only way to test all the hoses/connections/gaskets etc is to do as I suggest - and do myself.
It works. You will find every leak. And it took me some time to deal to them all. But to do this method - you dont have to remove anything but the airbox elbow.
From memory I flip it end for end, and rotate 90 deg, to get it located in the only space there is. This tests all your turbo intake side as well - intercooler, O rings etc.
If you want I can post a detailed pic of the unit I made - but you get the idea.
Regards
Alan
