Don't get worked up about it, They're not hard to fix. Just take your time removing each hose you can and checking it for a split. Sometimes just putting them back on again nice and tight fixes them.

I find the same with electrics . Absolute nightmare to find the problem at times but usually a simple fix .

hiya just a quick question, that little brass bit in the t piece, is there not supposed to be one on the exit that leads to guage, mine has that with a little hole in it. boosts fine up to 10 psi and thats all you get to red line, if you absolutely floor it in 3rd then the boost kicks to 15 psi but thats it, conversion is around 1 bar maximum all in,, and 10 psi normal boost driving hard, around 0.6 bar,,,,,,,why isnt it boosting right?
