Just trying to understand more myself, here.
when the engine is in vaccum (idle) and there is a leak going in, there is extra air coming in that the mass air flow sensor hasnt accounted for. More air than fuel is a lean condition. now when hes under boost, the pressure post turbo is under pressure and if the leak were coming from post turbo the correction value should turn into a negative value because of a perceived rich condition. if it is before the turbo but after the maf it would still be a positive value
