There is a hose that goes from the intercooler (IC) to the waste gate (WG). Depending on the mods on the car, that hose could go to different places on the IC system; however, it will always go to the WG. Start from the WG and follow it back to see where it lands and check for leaks. Also be sure that it is connected to the proper port on the WG. Again, depending on the mods (if different than OEM WG) the connecting port could be on top or bottom of the WG; one port is "in" for + pressure and the other is "out" for exhaust of the WG. If those are backward, then the WG is not opening getting an overboost condition knocking/peening and possibly lots of $s if not fix ASAP..
