    Hi all this has probably been covered before but i want to know if you can really do a boost leak test with a foot pump has anyone done a test this way as i dont want to be wasting my time and legs trying to pump air into my intake in vain lol. I dont have access to a compressor at the moment so i cant do it that way. Thanks for reading.

    I think it would take forever with a foot pump...lol, and if you had a leak you would never get it pressured up
