    Hi I'm new to this site, OK here my problem I installed a new stock Turbo inlet hose in and you guys all know that you have to take out the intake manifold to out in the new inlet, anyways once me and my buddy put it all back in and start up the car rpm jumped up to 4k so we adjust the throttle cable came soon to find out went back to normal after about a week of driving back and forth to work soon to find out that I have loss of power and I hear a loud hissing sound where the bov is seems like I have a vacuum leak somewhere .so just to say is that what's a good place to start inspecting to find out where the leak is? Sorry if my probelem doesn't make sense

    Is the CEL illuminated? Take a can of 2+2 Gum cutter and with the engine running at idle spray it around the intake manifold gaskets and all vacuum lines/ connections coming off of the manifold, if the car changes idle while doing this than chances are you have a vacuum leak...Also unless your running around say 20 + PSI I would most likely lose the BOV, this is of course assuming that you have an aftermarket one that vents to the atmosphere...
