Default Leak Tester Made, Now what?

Hello. I just made a leak tester like the one on this site
MY question now is this. Where do i attach it?
1. The turbo inlet hose around where the MAF is.
2. I have a FMIC so can i just attach it to the coupler coming out of the turbo. Will that get all the leaks that could possibly be there.

I ask becaus mine is a bit bigger so it will be harder for me to get in on the compressor wheel of the turbo.

you want to pressurize everything starting before the turbo inlet, going towards the motor. be sure to plug up the fittings coming off your turbo inlet or you will pressurize the crankcase etc through the breather lines.
