Thread: Smoke test

  1. #1

    Default Smoke test

    I want to make a smoke tester to test for any leaks in my piping, only thing is the couplers I need to put over the turbo inlet cost $40.00 at the parts store, is there anything that cost less that I can use, It will probably only be used once so I hate to spend like $75.00 for a one time use, let me know of any ideas, Thanks

    I used rubber pipe ends from home depot, worked for pressure testing my hot side

    Any plumbing shop/warehouse store that sells Fernco rubber pipe couplings. Their 3 coupler (about $6, including SS clamps) is a popular replacement for the WS6 corrugated rubber bellows that connects the MAF to the throttle body. Usually find the couplings near the plastic pipe.

    Yup.

    I attached a air line quick connect to mine so I can pressurize my hot side and cold side for leak checks.
