    Loud boost leak sound

    Hi,

    for weeks now i have had this loud hissing sound when on boost. I know your all thinking boost leak.
    I have presure tested the whole system found my 007p leaks above 8psi but thats it. so looked at the intake pipe, I have removed the PCV return from the TIP and blocked this off the noise still there.
    removed the DV completely used bungs both sides, still the sound is there.

    Im running stock air box, it does it with both BMC filter and stock.

    Any help would be great?

    thanks

    Woody

    Where is the noise coming from? Which area of the engine bay?

    My car never made this noise when i first bought it and it had a standard airbox. Green cotton panel filter made it a bit louder though.

    but it feels fine

    not that i am doubting your pressure test mate but did you have the bumper off and test the flanges at the top and bottom collectors of the intercoolers? Mine burst here right at the top of the nearside intercooler at the flange between the finned cooler section and the top plastic collector section.

    Behind the glove box is the turbo/tip sort of area...

    Have you checked the turbo outlet pipe from the turbo to the charge pipe for starters.

    Failing that, and you are sure there are no leaks, check the actuator pipe for splits.

    yeah good shout, with the turbo outlet to charge pipe being an orangey colour if it is leaking you will be able to see or feel for slight greasiness, like oil vapour

    Try meet up with someone on here, see if their S3's have the same sound your experiencing. As said before, now i've got a Forge TIP, DV and panel filter, mines making more of the swooshing sound on spool up.

    Recently replaced my TIP, and found the original, at the turbo end. The jubilee clip was properly loose.
