The last time I installed turbochargers I did a pressure check of the intake piping while the engine was out of the car.
This time I wanted to get the motor into the car and decided to wait until it was back in place to do the pressure check – bad decision. Turned out that there was a small leak down by the passenger turbocharger. I was able to get down to the coupler hose that’s on the compressor outlet to tighten the hose clamps, but that didn’t help with the leak. Sensing that something unusual is up I am now taking the motor back out to see what is going on.
