Turbo boost leak is an air leak from turbo pipe, cracked intercooler, manifold or clamp.

Leaking air also causes the turbocharger to work harder than it should.

BMW 320D loss of power.

Turbo boost leak fix will maximize fuel efficiency and car power.

Before spending time and money tracking mystery turbo leaks on the car, you should first have your car scanned for ODD error codes and if it's turbocharged have a boost leak check done.
