Unhappy Cel P0442

I need some help finding the cause of this code. I have searched and none of the suggestions have worked so far.
Here's a little background. I have not changed the fuel pump. I traded gas caps with a friend. I have checked the blue connector beside the intake. I have checked the lines at the canister. Nothing has worked. The only thing that I have changed recently is the turbo inlet pipe. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Randy

Well I went to the dealership today to have the car checked out and they could not locate the source of the leak. They did the diagnostic test and the smoke test. I'm lost. Does anyone know if the smoke test is reliable?

After wasting my money with incompetent people at the local Subaru dealership I decided to look for the leak again. Guess what.... I found it after looking for two minutes. The purge control valve solenoid had a crack at the base of one of the nipples. I'm going to call and complain about the sorry diagnostic work that was done or not done on my car today. Thanks for the info Uncle Scotty.
