Mark from Redline Detection runs us through how checking for boost/air leaks can help avoid misdiagnosis as well as ensure a job well done when reassembling an engine, helping rule out any unintentionally introduced errors while on the tools.
While these units are aimed at commercial users and have expandable adaptors to help with quick and easy use for mechanics and technicians, they do offer some home enthusiast-level options and of course, you can piece together your own kit for a specific vehicle too, or simply find a local workshop to do this for you on a routine basis instead.
