:lol: that's right

Yeah, I've never had mine on the Dyno, apart from checking what power it actually makes.

It can be very simple to do the leak check: cap the SFB after the MAF, a yellow metal honey jar will do the trick with the stock clamp.

Apply air pressure at around 1 psi to the BOV ref hose, with eg a bicycle floor pump or any low pressure source, and go nuts with soapy water spray and use a strong torch to peep for bubbles, listen for hissing.

The next level is adding a smoker, look at the Ebay paint can kits for ideas.

My home made kit uses a 12v tyre inflator, garden hose, some fittings including caulking nozzles and a smouldering oily rag in a used paint can.

Smells like an industrial accident but it works :P

Make sure your FPR vac reference hose is hooked up to the inlet manifold, it’s easy enough to miss.

Cmon man, short fat bit, the zig zag pipe post maf. :P

If you block the end of it, you’re sealing the inlet tract, meaning it can be pressurised via the bov ref hose...

Also here’s Matt’s LV explainer:

There’s also a diagram linked in my tune faq post, link in my signature.
