    boost leak?charger slip?

    hey guys got a couple questions. right now i am running an et 137 and external i/c. et recomends that the charger be set at 15 ft.lbs of slip i am at 14 so not to far off. but i am only running around 11 lbs of bosst but should be at 13. so my questions are
    a) would that pound of slip effect it that much?
    b) would running at 8000-8050 affect boost that much?
    c) combination of a and b
    d) do the exterior temps affect how much boost is made if still spinning at proper rpm?
    also how do you guys check for boost leaks.?

    What RPM limit do u have?
    1 lb slip, will not effect it that much.

    May need to depitch, or have a boost leak.

    Air , and water make a big difference in RPMs when they are hot

    right now i have stock ecu. and it is spinning at 8000-8050. i know the temps affect rpm but i wasnt sure if they also affected boost along the same principals. now how do you guys check for boost leaks? i tried on trailer but with exhaust/charger/intake sucking i could not hear anything.

    you need to pressurize the system when the ski is off, use 409 to spray on your i/c connections and look for bubbles. gL
