fine even tho the psi dropped so low, i was gonna run a boost guage from the hot side of the ic and see the psi difference from there to the manifold

Pressurize the system using a boost leak tester, it may not even be those two couplers, and smoke machine puts out a few inches water column, NOT enough to test for BOOST leaks, but good enough for the VACUUM/INTAKE side.

Are you using JB3 or Procede?
it the turbonetics/spearco/code 3/dinan ic

smoke test wont tell you squat most likely.

Good for finding exhaust leaks though!
Could you send me the link to thread...
