Engine Intake Pressure Testing
As turbocharged vehicles become more and more common, the need to identify air leaks is becoming paramount.
An air leak on a turbocharged vehicle will usually only be under pressure and it means your turbocharger will be over speeding in order to compensate, thus shortening its life dramatically. We have special equipment that enables us to pressure test a vehicles intake system as though it is under boost and we can pressure test right up to 70psi where necessary.
This image shows us pressure testing the intake of an Escort RS Cosworth. The test itself is easy, and cheap, and may save you a costly turbocharger replacement, as well as restore your missing engine power.
