Default Smoke test

I have finished all of my reassembly and wanna do a smoke test to test for vacuum leaks... Does anyone have any recommendations where to hook my smoke source up port wise and do i need to plug off the intake or what?

Depends on your setup too. Still have the stock intake or turbo inlet pipe? If so, I'd disconnect the intake and use a cone/expanding adapter and put smoke in from there.

Otherwise, you could take off the vacuum hose to your BPV/BOV and apply smoke there using a small smoke tester attachment.
