    Just got the "Typhoon Power Plus" intake mani from AEBS/whoever, and I was wondering how to test for leaks around the intake gasket.
    Could I turn the car on and spray the area water/some mixture and look for air bubbles?
    What could I do?

    the leaks will be sucking air in, so they wont bubble
    use something like brake cleaner and spray it around the whole gasket area while the car is idling
    if you hear the engine suddenly bog down then you have a leak
