    Lower intercooler boost pipes, whip the bumper off and have a look, also check the elbow coming off the turbon onto the charge pipe.

    The top one, the one coming off the turbo. Look at the engine bay head on, just on top of the engine there's a large l shaped bend going over and around the enigne, follow it to the back of the engine, there will be a silicone elbow that goes onto the turbo, check that.
    The other pipes are the rubber one that comes off the l shaped pipe down into the bumper, the other one is the one coming up the front of the drivers side into the inlet manifold, check all these.
    Latly, you will need to pop your bumper off, there is 2 side mount intercoolers, check all connection going into and out of them.
