Had a boost leak for a while now and its driving me nuts. I had the car in bits yesterday to find where it could be leaking from and i cant find a single split pipe, and everything is on tight
The only split pipe is the y piece which attaches to the cam cover, this surely cant be the cause of the leak as i wouldnt of thought the pcv system would hold boost pressure? i can see how it would cause a vacuum leak though and allow unmetered air into the system after the maf.
Everyone keeps banging on about it being a cause of a boost leak and is im not very knowledgable with turbo engines then i will just agree, so sod it im going to delete the pcv system and fit a ghetto catch can for now.
Ive been reading up and i am still very cunfused as to which pipes to block off, my engine is AMK
So would i be right in thinking:
block off the hole in the TIP
Block off the hole coming from the oil filter block thingymabob
block off the brake vacuum source
block off one nipple on the underside of the inlet mani
run a pipe from the cam cover to some sort of bottle
would that work?
there seems to be so many mixed answers and its confusing me, thanks
