Have you ever experienced any of these situations with your turbocharged car?
- Had less peak boost than you had a few months ago ?
- Does your car seem a little bit slower ?
- Ever wonder if you could have a leaking pressure pipe in your engine?
If you’ve answered yes to any of the above questions, then this device could come in very handy.
This device is a piece of test equipment that will allow you to find out if there are any leaks from any hoses, clamps, cracked hosings that could be leaking boost.
The boost leak tester is a very simple piece to use, you simply remove the intake tubing to the turbo, and then clamp on the boost leak tester onto the turbo inlet. Then pressurize the turbo and piping with a air compressor or bicycle pump. This will fill the piping with compressed air and will allow you to listen for any leaks.
The MPx boost leak tester is made with a silicone rubber coupler for secure sealing to the turbo, uses a aluminum machined end cap, and a pressed in brass threaded tire valve.
Here is a photo of the boost leak tester attached onto a SRT4 motor with a factory turbo. Here you can see it simply attaches onto the turbo and is held in place with a hose clamp.
