    heheh awake now :p

    is the turbo spinning?
    do you stay in FULL vacuum, or do you approach 0 on the vacuum/boost line? be more specific abot whats happening

    I cant see any leaks yet.I put a fitting in the ic pipe im going to cap the turbo off and put presure in tthem and spray the fitting w/soapy water.But I dont think it has a leak because we shot air in it last night and the boost gauge went up to 5 lbs and the only air camr out was from around the turbo where we couldnt block the pressure of by hand .But it would hold 2lbs.Right when the boost should hit it makes a screaching sound,

    Screeching sound? Leak in the turbo housing, or possibly the bearing in the turbo?
