Default Smoke test 2005 STi

Our 2005 STi has been in the shop for 3 weeks to get a significant amount of preventative maintenance done. Is there some reason the smoke test would be put off until everything else was done? Nothing was done on the intake side of things as far as I know although to be honest I'm not very familiar with all of the work. We also asked for an inspection on all hoses. We were supposed to pick up the car today and then we were told there is an air leak at the intake manifold to TGV. Just wondering if all of the diagnostic testing should have been done at the beginning before the work was started or did it make sense to do the smoke test at the end?

Greetings,
If they removed or even loosened the intake or TGVs to perform any maintenance then its possible they didn't put something back together properly or created a problem. A smoke test is not something I would perform prior to a service unless it was to help identify or reveal another issue I was trying to diagnose.

In this case it has revealed an issues that was unknown or is a result of other work performed.

You should be able to determine if these portions of the car were 'touched" as a result of the maintenance the shop performed. This should tell you if the repair is on you, or on them.

i would have tested it before hand to make sure you know for yourself that's not an issue but that's just me. You can always test it on your own to see if you can find them assuming you have the tools.
