8. I have had XXXX brand valve for years, it has never leaked.
--How do you know? By looking at your boost gauge? Looking at the boost levels in your datalog? Niether of those prove that the valve isnt leaking.
you may want to add that a good way of testing for a leak is to do a pressure test.... just my 2 cents
