    Boost leak check ???

    In the process of checking for a boost leak and looking at the gauge. How can you be sure you are having a leak? How are you able to tell with the gauge ?
    My rpms are dead on 8100 and do not move up or down at wot.

    most of the time that when you have boost leak you will know that something is not right. if you are spining 8100 you are good to go in my book what mods do you have and the speeds are you getting?

    More info please, how much boost and what type of supercharger impeller ? I doubt a leak if you are turning the 8100 RPM.

    8100 does not sound like a boost leak, unless you got an ECU and want to see 8500+

    Hes saying that if you have a stock ECU and turning 8100 then you probley dont have a boost leak.But if your running a aftermarket ECU then there could be a possability you have one because the aftermarkets turn 8500 and higher
