Hi Mark,

No problem. Makes me think.

I had not heard they ever leaked externally, only to click. If an external leak it might be detectable using the brake cleaner trick as the conection side should be under vac at idle.

I still would check the IC O ring conection and other potential leak points first.

However, as this problem seemed to be there before the new turbo, intercooler, and second boost gauge, there is probably something else afoot.

On the exhaust side the WG checked out ok. If there were any major exhaust leaks they would be heard. The only other thing on this side could be a clogged cat if it is was still running one.

It dose sound like something is killing his boost. If it is not going pig rich on boost the leak would probably have to be through the BOV.

Look forward to hearing what it is.
