I have.

I went to home depot and found some pvc fittings that fit inside the elbow going to the air meter. I then drilled and taped the fittings for a 1/4 inch npt fiting.

Hooked up a small air regulator and checked for leaks.

I found my overboost switch, the injector blocks, intercooler, and the throttle body all leaking air.

I ended up mixing up some really soapy water in a spray bottle and lightly missed the engine until I found some bubbles.

There are new professional systems that use smoke (by burning baby oil) to trace for air leaks.
