is this the best way to look for a vacuum leak? I must have one, too...

I've removed all of the AAR's and AAV's a long time ago, etc... All hoses are new along with intake blocks. The car starts and idles on it's own when cold. The idle starts out at about 500 RPM when cold [maybe this is normal with all accessories removed], but slowly goes to 1,200 over the next 10-minutes of warming up.

my idle screw is all the way in... i'd really like to have the car idle at 900 when warm, so I need to find the leak!!
