I am going to have my IC out to replace the scoop in the next couple of weeks.I was wondering if there is an easy way to test it for leaks?

Do they develop pin holes often?Mine has never been tested.

Cut a bicycle tube in half and clamp both ends on the intercooler. Fills with 10lbs of air and submerge in your bathtub and look for air bubbles. Very important do this when your wife or mother are not home rant

You can just fill it with water, and see if it stays full. This won't find tiny leaks, but tiny leaks aren't a problem until they get big.
