Ok basically its all in the title, tho the reason I'm asking is because I'm gonna go out on a limb and say when you have intercooler ripped almost completely off your front end from those awesomely maintained council roads and you put it back on to the best of your ability and all its still a high possibly I have some leakage. The intercooler didn't sustain any major damage other than it ripped off the top mounting bracket but I can't see any holes but my main issue is with the pipes and all that are thinner and held together with the rubber couplings (looking way worse for wear). After that long explanation assuming I do have some boost leak can any damage occur with just normal driving (ie not flogging it every time I'm in it)

Thanks,
Tony

For starters, if you're running an afm and there is a leak, you'll notice it. Basically you'll run rich in varying degrees with any sized leak, so all the associated issues with that will be there, ie: fouling plugs etc.. This will occur all the time at any level of driving, once again in varying degrees.

Just get it sorted asap to save yourself the headache in the longrun.

Thanks mate, yeah thats what I was fearing, looks like i'll start saving for a new full kit, would be good if i could test for leaks for the time being.
