    I think Caveman Nige has done something similar, ie. some sort of plug-in compressor to identyify leaks.

    I used a wet and dry vacuum cleaner.
    Wickes do one with a blower output for about £32.
    Listening for leaks with anything that makes a noise is difficult tho'.
    I also hung/shoved plastic bags down by the intercooler to see if they were blowing in the wind.
