|So my car recently had a boost leak in my car and decided to use the tennis ball method and took some pics of how it works. Its quite simple to do and takes all of about 15 min.|
1. Tennis Ball
2. Flat Head Screw Driver
3. Knife (to cut the tennis ball)
4. Compressor or Air Pump
Step 1: Get a tennis ball.
Step 2: Cut two holes in the tennis ball, one on each end.
Step 3: Should look like this on each end of the tennis ball.
Step 4: Go to your car an find the turbo inlet hose.
Step 5: Remove MAF and inlet hose from airbox or air filter
Step 6: Hook compressor or air pump to the tennis ball by sliding it in the holes you cut before.
Step 7: Place the tennis ball in the inlet hose and clamp it in using the existing clamp.
Step 8: Turn on compressor and pump air into the inlet hose. CAUTION: DO NOT OVER PRESSURIZE!!! 10psi should be more than enough.
Step 9: Now listen for air coming out of any boost lines or vaccume hoses. Now you should find your leak. Mine was here.
