Default DIY boost leak tester

Neat video of a guy building a nice boost leak tester. I will be making one tomorrow minus the gauge.

Talk to Nagel Tommy, He should be able to help you build one at the shop.

Unfortunatly that class turned into electronics. There isn't anything about building engines, or bringing your car in the shop anymore. Just learning about wiring in cars and ecu bs. That shop is actually clean for once due to the new Dmacc curriculum.

Interesting, I didn't have any issues with mine at 25+psi. but it also built pressure very slowly.
