    How to pressure test turbo??

    Iím running a 15 viper with a boost it turbo, I have a leak somewhere canít seem to find it. Whatís the best way to pressure up the system to find the leak? I found a crack in the header and got it welded but still leaking somewhere. Can a guy plug the exhaust and push air from the cylinder??

    check clamps on throttle bodies.

    You’re on the right track! Plug your exhaust tight, then set up a fitting so that you can introduce about 5psi into the intake, replacing your air filter. I made one from odds and ends in home depot plumbing dept and a compressed air QD.

    crank your compressor output way down and slowly pressure up. You’ll hear air pissing out of somewhere in the system! Good luck, let us know what you find.
