What happens if you don't install your intercooler hoses correctly?

i.e.... they are not completely sealed. Do you lose boost? Can you hear anything?

Thanks.

How different would this sound from the turbo spooling?

Since I put my new hoses on the turbo sounds a little different, but I don't know if it's just getting more air from the hoses or a bad seal.

When I did my up-pipe install and forgot to tighten the IC to throttle body section with the clamps, I only hit about half boost. At the time I did not notice any strange noises.

sounds like a kettle... except louder and maybe a little higher pitch
