so i have the pressure tester, and am now just concerned with procedure to go about the test. can someone outline the steps involved in doing this? so far what i understand is:

1: remove airbox and after maf hose
2: plug turbo inlet hose with pressure tester
3: remove three inlet hose lines and cap the inlet hose off in those three locations (do you cap off the lines as well?)
4: use compressor to pressurize the system up to about 20 psi (what if your car will be tuned to run more than that? what is a safe max psi??)
5: listen for leaks, using soapy water if necessary to pinpoint them
6: fix leaks, and make mad jdm horsepower yo

what am i missing? anything? tia...
