    As title, I'm pretty sure I have a boost leak and need some way of pressurising the system in order to find it.

    Any help appreciated.

    On this same topic, a friendly forum member has offered to lend me their tester but it's for an a3 1.8t rather than an S3. What size MAF housing does a 1.8t run in comparison to an S3? Surely it wouldn't be to difficult to knock together a coupler....?
