    hi all,i have had a boost leak for a while but isn't that bad so i thought the low power of the car was down to either pcv or dv i changed pcv first ,no luck there so took out the dv and it had all ready been done by previous owner so today i spotted a hole about the size of a 2 match heads in my inter cooler would this cause much power loss or would a hole that small make a difference.

    Any hole in the intake system will have an effect, try sealing on the surface with a resin like topfix & see if it helps?
