    Sorry but what are you asking? You'll have to locate the leak and fix it.

    Because there is no pressure to blow off.

    It doesn't matter in terms of that - your turbo is spinning much more than it needs to or can sustain.

    You can buy a boost leak tester on ebay, and I recommend it, but you need to read up and be careful (loosen the oil filler cap). You can make things much worse with one if you blow a seal.
