You can find hoses that are leaking by applying pressure to the whole intake
side of the engine... it works quite well.  Just make sure you are using
compressed air that you have regulate down to a reasonable level (10psi works
great).  You'd be amazed at all the places you can loose intake pressure.
This method is far less time consuming than complete hose removal.
