got some possible air leaks to check out.

i have a K27 and where the outlet of the turbo to the IC is does not feel that good. that pipe has some kind of "muffler" clamp on it. i have tried to remove it to see how it seals , but i can not get it off. even with the clamps tight, the pipe feels a bit lose.

i found that the big O ring onthe TB and a big chunk taken out of it. not sure how ling it has been that way.
i have already checked the vacuum line to the booster and the booster and i have check the intake manifold bolts. any other places to check?
an air leak could make sense. idle has a slight miss but being rich can make up for it. cruise is lean and it would be the worst, which it is. boost, well, boost is pumping so much air in, a leak might not be noticeable.
